As depression, addiction, family breakdown, and social and personal distress continue to increase, the College of Mental Health Counseling has published “healing in a book.” Simply reading this book brings self-understanding and healing of childhood experiences affecting adult life and relationships.
Counselors can present this as a holiday gift to clients to help their healing and progress while they attend counseling sessions.
A reader says:
"Loving every page as I devour every word. I'm sure you've heard this many times. Your insight is profound, challenging and stirring. By the time I had reached page 40, I had two huge realizations of my own regarding family of origin issues. I welcomed the tears of healing." – D.R., Alberta

This in-depth look at the effects of childhood pain, abuse, and loss, is followed by specific ways to uncover and heal the hidden thoughts and emotions that undermine the ability to maintain a healthy relationship with self and others.
"Wow! At first glance I thought to myself here goes another one of those books that just keeps repeating itself. But no! By the time I reached "The Counseling Session," I began to look for my credit card. This is the best Effective Counseling Skills Text Book I have ever seen. And in just a few days I will have one as well. Thanks for the heads-up, and if anyone out in cycberland hasn't purchased this book, you are missing out." – V.G., Counselor, Texas Treatment Services, Dallas
