We strive to be psychologically healthy-happy, productive, balanced, calm. But nearly every one of us has suffered from some kind of psychological problem-depression, anxiety, fear of heights or crowds, obsessions, compulsions, and dozens of other troubles. In this book, richly experienced psychoanalyst Dr. Henry Kellerman explains the four things we need to do to solve many of the psychological problems that come up in life. He then shows how his method has worked in a variety of cases that he has handled over the course of his psychoanalytic career. Anyone can easily understand and apply these steps to free oneself from personal patterns that bedevil us.
Henry Kellerman, Ph.D., has had a private practice in psychology/psychoanalysis since 1965. He has taught graduate courses in psychology and psychoanalysis at New York University, The New School University, The City University, and the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. The author of numerous professional books, Kellerman lives in New York City.
