In ‘Empathy Deficit Disorder: The Lack of a Moral Compass‘, Jon explores the neurobiology of empathy, how empathy deficit disorder (EDD) can come about and the effect this has on the person and those around them.
‘The Fork in the Road‘ looks at cost to our societies of simple messaging that dehumanises those we perceive to be different, and how this lack of empathy is damaging us as a species, and our planet.
Jon co-authored the books Brain Based Parenting and The Neurobiology of Attachment-Focused Therapy with Dr. Dan Hughes, and is a Clinical Psychologist specialising in neurobiology with over 35 years experience.
