The Owl is used to represent the (Neo-cortical) Wise, and “Higher” more loving brain. Because the Crocodile “moves” about 30 times faster than the Owl and only uses about 5% of the incoming data, it gets to center stage first with 100% of its agenda. The survival (Limbic) brain is activated by FEAR OF DYING as perceived by the Crocodile. When fear produces the production of adrenalin the person usually goes into the fight or flight mode. The Crocodile brain is very good for swerving or avoiding an accident on the highway, but is very poorly suited for interpersonal; relationships. The book, using whimsically illustrated clinical vignettes clarifies and shows how to identify Who is talking now, Owl or Crocodile and to see the usual irrational thought pattern leading to anger which is the leading cause of relationship breakup and or damage. Much of the book focuses on strategies to circumvent, prevent or undo the Crocodile’s unloving agenda and substitute the Owl’s wiser, loving, kind and caring approach.
