The Resource Center Reinvented.
Life is this amazingly awesome thing, replete with sights, sounds, tastes, smells, feelings, emotions, expectations, praises, criticisms, friends, foes, obligations, allies, competitors, markets, victories, in-laws, stock options, rat races, defeats, surprises, traffic jams and so, so much more. There are social cues, decorums, and implicit rules. There are times and places for everything and not everything is appropriate for now -- but maybe when your authoritative boss, Mary, stands up. There are jobs that need doing, deals that need negotiating, and courses that need passing. There are conversations that need sensitive words and debates that need iron-fisted logic. There are husbands that need uplifting, wives that need to let off some steam, and kids that need to create.
When you think about it, life can be rather overwhelming. There are just so many things that need attending to at any given moment.

Am I fulfilling my purpose? Is Mindfulness really a thing?

We are now ready to share our vision for better everything’s with you.
The Integrated Learning Annex is a place where individuals and their families can come to explore ways of making all life’s information make sense. We have lots of great ideas, approaches, and programs that we hope will be impactful.
We are founded and informed by our parent clinic, Southern California Neuropsychology Group, where we busy ourselves studying the interactions between the brain and observed behavior. Our staff takes this foundation and branches into a number of research and practice interests that make for great conversation and programming. Some of us are fascinated by decisions and how to make the best ones, others are fascinated by achievement and how to bring the best out of kids. We discuss creativity, optimal strategies for raising capital, and how to approach an irritable 16-year old. If it involves people it involves us.
We start by simply asking...
