The Human Brain (Diagram)

worksheet

The Human Brain Diagram is a versatile tool for psychoeducation. The diagram separates the brain into six major parts, and provides a brief description of the functions carried out by each section.

Discussion of the brain, and how it works, can be a powerful way to explore many topics. Explaining the physical changes behind mental illness can help them feel less abstract, and more like something real that can be treated.

We especially like to use this diagram as a visual aid for psychoeducation about how the brain changes during the fight-or-flight response, anger, and drug intoxication. This printout also looks great as a framed wall decoration in a therapy office.
