Overcoming the Destructive Inner Voice: True Stories of Therapy and Transformation, Robert W. Firestone, Prometheus Books – What causes our self-destructive behaviors? How can human beings overcome childhood wounds? Is true transformation possible? These are some of the essential questions Robert W. Firestone, PhD explores through eleven case studies of his former patients. The intimate narratives explore the transformative effect of the therapeutic relationship. Dr. Firestone’s innovative “voice therapy” methodology reveal his ability to help patients learn to recognize, understand, and quiet the destructive inner voices that keep them from living a full life. The well-written, clinical encounters give both the layperson and practitioner a close-up view of the psychotherapy process in action and how it can lead to self-understanding and personal growth. These powerful stories are brimming with emotion and truths about the human experience.
