"J.F. Benoist has given us a book of insight and clarity. Both psychotherapists and their clients will greatly benefit. The author's use of vignettes and suggested exercises is informative, instructive and holds the reader's interest. I highly recommend this book."

"J.F. goes straight to the core of human dysfunction in a most unique way. From page one to the very end, as we follow people on their healing journeys, we feel what they feel, and can then explore our own inner process. I hold this book as a potent, personal therapeutic tool. Excellent!"
