In this book—written for clinicians, as well as for the curious general reader—Dr. Henry Kellerman examines psychological symptoms such as obsessions, compulsions, and phobias by using a symptom code to unrave and then cure the symptom.
The unfortunate fact is that psychotherapists have never really had a map or an instruction manual that they could follow so that any symptom could be unlocked and cured. Even though psychotherapists know a great deal about the processes of psychotherapeutic treatment, nowhere is there any spelled-out technique that they could systematically use to penetrate the symptom and cure it.
This book is more than a technical treatise. It considers 10 fascinating cases to show how Dr. Kellerman’s methods have worked for more than a half-century of private practice. A majority among those profiled do not require medication, some do. In addition to discussing the cure, Kellerman employs a way to struggle more effectively, with the objective of learning how to utilize the symptom code.
