Through these very personal stories, Havens explores the meaning of psychological health--how it can be recognized through the filter of images and ideas, protected from distortion, and encouraged to flourish. The result is a revealing and deeply moving explication of the process of self-discovery as it emerges from the life story that therapy can tell. Harvard Medical School Psychiatry Professor Havens also authored A Safe Place.
