Adventures in Human Understanding: Stories
for Exploring the Self
by John G. Watkins, Ph.D.
Preface by Woltemade Hartman, Ph.D.
"A gifted author. Each scenario is cleverly analyzed in a brilliant
psychotherapeutic style." -- Fred Weldon, University of Montana
|In Adventures in Human Understanding the story is revealed as a therapeutic tool
-- the medium by which lessons may be learned and persist in the memory; and the medium that provides metaphors for life, gleaning meaning from our experiences.
Leading clinical psychologist John G. Watkins, Ph.D. has embodied his extensive knowledge of the mind in the "adventures in human understanding" gathered in this book. Arranged into four sections that address the four stages of life, each story is followed by a psychological analysis, ensuring that
Adventures in Human Understanding will be an effective instrument for facilitating therapy, as well as an enjoyable source of stories for everyone.
|John G. Watkins, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of the University of Montana, is world renowned as a pioneering psychologist, particularly in the areas of hypnosis, dissociation and multiple personality. He was a founder and past president of ISCEH, an international society in hypnosis. He has been the president of the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (SCEH), of the American Board of Psychological Hypnosis, and of Division 30 (Hypnosis) of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Watkins has also served as clinical editor of the
International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis. He has lectured all over the world, and authored many groundbreaking books and articles on hypnosis and psychotherapy, making him one of the leading theorists in the field.
||"Dr. John Watkins is a master storyteller. His Adventures in Human Understanding rivets the reader's attention until the last page is turned. These fictional short "stories for exploring the self" are rich in human drama and deeply resonate with our own understanding of how we humans strive throughout our lives to grow and become whole. Dr. Watkins writes with joy, humor, insight, and wisdom about the struggles of people of all ages from "startin' time" to "quittin' time." With a light touch and a deep love, he invites us all to share with him this dance of life."
-- Peter B. Bloom, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
