The practice of psychology on any level is not for the faint of heart. Largely due to the subject nature that of the human mind and how we wrap said mind around subjective realities and relationships therein. The author demonstrates these hard topics in a relatable way to the reader because after such a long career sometimes a reader interested in the study simply has questions they don't know they've a mind to ask, all I can earnestly say? Thank goodness for a couch and a gifted narrator on the human condition.
