Description

Many people grapple with destructive thought processes or a "critical inner voice" that directs their behavior and, to varying degrees, limits their lives. Using deeply personal and very human stories based on his own clinical practice, noted psychologist Robert W. Firestone illustrates the struggles of his clients to give words to this "enemy within", and in the process overcome its damaging influence. These revealing and captivating stories offer glimpses into the uniquely human relationship that develops in the therapeutic encounter and demonstrate the powerful impact that the experience has on both client and therapist.

Dr. Firestone is the originator of a therapeutic method called "Voice Therapy", by which clients learn to identify the language of the defense system and eventually separate their own point of view from its harmful effects. Each story provides an intimate look into one person's life, illuminates aspects of his or her "dark side", and highlights an important insight into the therapeutic process.

This sensitively written book will evoke emotional responses in listeners, and inspire them to take action to challenge the dictates of their own inner critic.

Critiques

"Rounding off these 11 personal accounts is an appendix that plainly illustrates the how-tos of voice therapy, making it clear that anyone can practice it with or without a therapist...professionals in the field of psychology will find the book repays the reading time with plenty of insight." ( Publishers Weekly)

great stories.

great stories. I was expecting it to be more practical. I'm big fan of Robert W. Firestone. I wish there are more books of his in audio format.

Excellent information for therapeutic work.

This book was an eye opener on the therapeutic use of voice therapy. The case studies are very beneficial because the results were personal for each client, and their struggles mirrored so many others in daily life. I especially appreciate the pace and tone of the narrator; I found his reading therapeutic.

not for me.

lol...he literally states "I was surprised when Dr. Firestone walked in the room at 6ft and handsome " -chapter 12. Don't recommend this book. Rather than giving life tips flat out, it is different stories that Dr. Firestone had therapy sessions with and maybe I missed a detail but it seems that almost all of their personal problems stemmed from sexual assault or rape or had sexual urges they couldn't control. I respect the man's profession and he has a published book but can't say that I enjoyed this book.
