Shorr is a pioneer in the development of the human's potential for using imagination as a basis for a diagnostic & psychotherapeutic intervention method. He was one of the first clinicians in America to expand the use of imagery beyond its limited employment in the early psychodynamic treatment approaches & to recognize its enormous power for evoking emotion & providing a sense of cognitive clarity for clients trapped in unexpressed or unidentifiable conflicts. "In modern times only clever writers like Donald Barthelme or John Irving can represent these preconscious, seemingly bizarre waking images that characterize the stream of thought Dr. Shorr... has developed in his vast armamentarium of suggested situations a remarkable key to unlocking the rich variety of moving pictures we carry around with us as representations of interpersonal relationships."--Jerome L. Singer, Ph.D., Director of Clinical Training, Yale University. "Psycho Imagination Therapy is one of the purest of systems. It is essentially an autochthonous system unsurpassed in charm & elegance by any of the systems in this book. And in my judgement it provides a process that all therapists should understand & be able to use. Like role playing, the interview, & analysis of early recollections, Psycho Imagination is a technique of general value."--Raymond Corsini, In: INNOVATIVE PSYCHOTHERAPIES.
