    I think this is a crucial topic for anyone who is in the service of helping others. Two great books so far are:
    The brain that changes itself by Norman Doidge and The power of the subconscious mind by Joseph Murphy.
    You will find more more references in Doidge's book.

    Hi Mel

    David Rock has some great work on this, in particular the SCARF model that formalised that explains the impact of social pain on our brains similarly to that of physical pain. His framework serves as a useful guide as individuals and managers in managing high performing states.

    There is some great research coming out of this area and well worth the investment in time digging around.
    All the best

    I agree with the points raised. Can anyone recommend options for learning more on the subject?
