Mark Brady, Ph.D. is a neuroscience educator, writer and retired licensed homebuilder. Many years ago, together with friends, he co-founded the Children’s Grief Program at Kara, a public service agency in Palo Alto, California where he only stopped volunteering upon moving to Whidbey Island, Washington. In addition to being a long-time member of the graduate research faculty at Sofia University, he writes the weekly column on social neuroscience (The Flowering Brain). Mark also spent 10 years at The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford, one of the nation’s premier think tanks (as the maintenance man!). He is also the prize-winning author of a number of books, magazine articles and academic papers. Two recent titles are: Safe and Secure: A Guide to Parenting with the Brain in Mind and Fierce Listening. These and other titles can be ordered wherever fine books are sold on the Internet or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
