Creating a Life of Meaning and Compassion: The Wisdom of Psychotherapy
Creating a Life of Meaning and Compassion offers a compilation of mature therapeutic insights that are valuable in achieving a better way of living. It describes a unique experiment in applied psychology whereby a group of individuals overcame a wide range of defensive behaviors and transformed their lives. The book documents the knowledge they acquired along the way and offers corrective suggestions based on their experiences. Most important, the authors indicate how the insights achieved can be applied by therapists in clinical practice.
This book offers a comprehensive guide for helping professionals and other people who are interested in their personal development, deepening their friendships, sustaining intimacy in their couple relationships, achieving success in the workplace, and developing healthy child-rearing practices. It points out the value of leading a life marked by adventure and recreation, transcendent goals, and spiritual exploration, and offers fresh views on the past, present, and future of psychotherapy.
