Here's what you say about us...

Digby Tantam is Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist for Sheffield Health Care NHS Foundation Trust, an Emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield, and Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge. He is a chartered psychologist, and a fellow of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. Educated at Oxford, Harvard, Stanford, London, and the Open Universities, and with a doctorate from the Institute of Psychiatry in London, he started a clinic for adolescents and adults with autism spectrum disorders in 1980 that has continued ever since.

The Interbrain is a groundbreaking, wide-ranging, and endlessly fascinating meditation on our innate ability to feel 'connected' to other people -- and on what can happen when that precious connection is diminished. It's compelling reading for anyone interested in the subtle mechanisms at work behind the essential experiences that make us human.
Steve Silberman, author of 'NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism' and 'How to Think Smarter About People Who Think Differently'

Digby Tantam's book, The Interbrain, is a necessary and innovative exploration of the biological and neurological essence of human nature. It opens our intellectual and conceptual vistas onto a more expansive and nuanced understanding of our interconnectedness. Such a stance, and such an argument, grounded as it is in first class research and thinking, is vitally necessary in an age in which fragmentation of the world, societies, communities and, indeed, individuals, occurs often unchallenged as the inescapable way of things. It is not. Read The Interbrain to find out why. Highly recommended.
Dexter Dias QC, human rights lawyer and author of 'The Ten Types of Human'

Exploring compelling science, informative historical examples, and modern day phenomena, Tantam provides a unique look at human nature; what connects us, what divides us, and what we can learn from knowing the difference.
