    What struck me from the beginning of Susan's struggle with her d

    What struck me from the beginning of Susan's struggle with her disability was her courage. Imagine breaking out of the confines of the four walls of the sacrosanct consulting room and walking with her clients outside, in the world, in the woods, in the parks, along the streams. "Out there," they began to experience something profound together, something utterly unexpected: the possibility of the conscious participation in nature making healing with nature possible. As a poet and writer Susan had to write the compelling stories not only of her own healing but the healing of her clients. In this way, the book itself becomes a healing experience, as I was to discover myself when I read it again when my own back was disabling me. Psychotherapy, of course, changes with glacial slowness, but psychotherapy in the future may not be confined to the small enclosed shutoff spaces we call offices, but the world itself as office. If so, Susan Scott's Healing With Nature has broken new ground, leading the way. This book will open your eyes to new ways of seeing yourself and yourself in nature; it will touch your own heart in ways that will surprise you, most of all, sparking courage to change in the face of adversity.

    Susan Scott’s sharing of her own story of healing, as well

    Susan Scott’s sharing of her own story of healing, as well as her patient’ stories, convincingly demonstrates the life force within and around us is stronger than despair. It is easy to find in this book a bit of oneself in each person’s struggle. Healing With Nature is a work of love filled with hope, intimacy and honor. Whenever I long for the unconditional presence a therapist like Susan Scott provides, I pick up this book and reread it.

    In Healing With Nature, Susan S. Scott deftly bridges theory and practice in gentle, yet penetrating prose. Transcending abstract conceptual formulations, Ms Scott describes her own and others' path to greater wholeness via resonance with the recuperative powers of nature. Trees, animals, birds and poetry all serve as symbolic guides in the soul's initiation through pain to maturity and depth. It is a walk well worth taking again and again, and the reader is happy for such generous, caring, sincere company along the way.

    Dr Susan Scott provides new and innovative ways to establish professional boundaries in patient safety and confidence in an intriguing and productive way. Her approach proves that one can change the game and be successful in finding new ways to treat and heal her patients. Dr. Scott is able to create an environment that allows patients to relate to nature and its never ending ability to heal itself. Through this book one can find many analogies in nature to promote healing from within. Hats off to Dr. Scott for being innovative in healing herself and her patients.
    In a previous posting, I inadvertently used terminology that is not respectful of the therapy world in stating Dr Scott breaks the boundaries. I meant to imply that this approach is refreshingly new and breaks the syndrome of thinking that one cannot have safety outside of a closed environment.

    Your walks-in-the-woods will take on an entirely new dimension. The author shares her keen observations of the wide array of botanical tropisms (photo, geo and hydro) and relates these miracles to our own abilities to adapt and heal. "Healing with Nature" is a fascinating read.

    I love this book!

    At its core, Healing With Nature is a book about trust. Within every injury, there is an instinct for healing, a tropism toward life. Susan Scott leads us on a journey of restoration, engaging us with stories of adaptation and growth in the face of life’s “obstacles.” Just as trees find a way to turn to the light, she shows the reader how to trust the inherent wisdom of body and mind to incorporate change, even when painful, and thrive in a redirected life. By looking to Nature, we are reminded that we are not alone, no matter how difficult the journey might be.
