Susan Hart has unified her brilliant and compelling command of both the objective scientific and the subjective psychotherapeutic aspects of attachment into a cutting-edge synthesis that she calls developmental neuroaffective psychology. Hart makes the often-confusing science of attachment highly accessible to both practitioner and researcher.

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach with Susan and to learn from her. She is a bright star and a clear author; she is able to distill complex theories and research into
readily understandable concepts.

This is the best introduction to neuroscience relevant to psychodynamic psychotherapists available today.

I have just participated in Susan Hart`s 4-day course in the Neuroaffective Compasses. I own and run the Psychotherapetic Institute in Copenhagen. We have a strong focus on the neuroaffective perspective. Our 130 students are all taught by psychotherapists and others who have participated in Susan Hart's continuing education. In addition to Susan's great knowledge of the neuroaffective perspective, she is an authentic and excellent teacher inspiring all my colleagues, students and myself.

With warmth, humor and great insight, Susan Hart leads you through neuroaffective developmental psychology. Her great knowledge of both practice and theory makes it relevant and extremely present. It has been a personal and professional pleasure to participate in her teaching. The neuroaffective framework can be transferred directly to my daily practice as a therapist and has especially been important in those situations where my normal therapeutic tools do not work.

It is an indescribable gift to get a "map" created from a deep experience base. A "map" combining sensory, emotional and reflective processes.

The education has helped me to be able to make more specialized and exact interventions in therapy with psychiatric patients.

Anders Bisgaard, Psychologist


The neuroaffective training has made me more conscious about relevant interventions, by getting a larger knowledge in the development of the nervous system.

Ingeborg Mosbech, Psychiatric occupational therapist


Very inspiring and giving both professional and personal!

Steen Degn, Psychotherapist MPF/Trainer and supervisor


The neuroaffective training has given me invaluable inspiration to work more precisely with clients who suffer from complex trauma.

Kirsten Degn, Psychotherapist MPF


I highly recommend neuroaffective developmental psychology to widen and sharpen every psychotherapist’s practice.

Josefine Diederichsen, Psychotherapist MPF


Neuroaffective developmental psychology creates a coherent understanding that give us tools in the therapy to work with other methods than the spoken language.

Heidi Sørensen, Leader of a social-psychiatric residential home


Neuroaffective developmental psychology sharpens my observations, so it is possible for me to know my client’s zone of proximal development. Also it makes it easier for me to contain my own challenges and strengthens my capability to create an alliance and development in my clients with complex trauma.
