Psychology-Book-Reviews




Psychology-Book-Reviews is the title I've given to the section where I recommend books I use in my practice. I've certainly given verbal book reviews to my clients on an informal basis. Over the years, I’ve recommended several books on a regular basis, others on an occasional basis. There are so many books available, some good, some not so good.

Clients have told me how difficult it is to simply go to a bookstore or website and order a book, and they have appreciated my recommendations. By the same token, when a client finds a new book and says it’s a good one, I like to take a look at it myself so I can recommend it (or not) to others. This helps cut through the jungle of self-help books available out there. Don’t get me wrong….I’m thankful for the wealth of information that can be gotten from these books. That’s why I decided to review several books on the website.

I’ll review some of the books quite extensively. These are the books that I use actively in my practice or recommend on a very regular basis. In the spirit of teamwork, I would also like to offer you the opportunity to recommend books that you have found helpful. Feel free to add to the reviews I have made on a particular book. Agree or disagree, differences make the world go around….so I would appreciate any contribution you would care to make.

Books are so important in facilitating change. Therapy most often focuses on the intensely personal experience of an individual, but books and articles provide background information, fill in the gaps and help an individual relate to others who have experienced similar problems.

Certainly I’m not a professional book reviewer. I’m not attempting to give a literary critique on any writings. What I do hope to do, as I have throughout this website, is give my opinion. I’ve been doing therapy for quite some time and, in the course of my professional career, I’ve come across a lot of self help books. And, as I’ve said, some have really withstood the test of time and usefulness, and these are the books I have come to count on to enhance the therapy process for my clients. From here, you can click on any of the links to check out a book review by category. I hope you will find my reviews helpful.
