Reviews

"Dr. Kellerman takes the reader on a journey through his decade of work with patients: reaching to their power-themes. These keep the individual's personality organized, so that resulting behavior can fulfill basic-wishes. Five compelling Case Histories make Psychotherapeutic Traction an extraordinary and highly recommended read not only for professionals, but for non-specialist general readers interested in the difficult-and-rewarding work of the psychotherapeutic process as well."
