“Life comes at us very quickly, and what we need to do is take that amorphous flow of experience and somehow extract meaning from it.” In this funny, enlightening talk, educational psychologist Peter Doolittle details the importance — and limitations — of your “working memory,” that part of the brain that allows us to make sense of what’s happening right now.

The main message from psychologist Peter Doolittle in this talk is this: “What we process, we learn”. He encourages all of us to repeat, practice and support our learnings by connecting information. And for this task he suggests that we use imagery. Imagery is a crucial tool within hypnotherapy. Using our imagery to mentally recreate desired scenes or/and situations in our inner mind so that our subconscious mind integrates them into our ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. Hypnosis may then become a powerful tool in order to improve our working memory and thus enjoy it to our desired potential.
