Mark Brady, PhD, reveals the neuroscience behind some of the challenges of writing when he speaks at  this months’s meeting of the Whidbey Island Writers Association from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, March 20. He will also explore the possibility that writing can be Big Medicine for those who can stomach it.

Mark is a neuroscience educator and writer who, along with friends, co-founded the Children’s Grief Program at Kara, a public service agency in Palo Alto. He is a long-time member of the graduate research faculty at Sofia University and writes a weekly column on social neuroscience (The Flowering Brain).

The prize-winning author of a number of books, magazine articles and academic papers, Mark’s most recent titles are: “Safe and Secure: A Guide to Parenting with the Brain in Mind” and “A Father’s Book of Listening.” He is currently working on a new book offering prescriptions for helping children escape childhood unscathed.
