Defining Moments: Breaking Through Tough Times

26 Apr

Dr. Dorothea S. McArthur, a clinical psychologist, helps people recover and grow through life’s inevitable knock-down events. She shares her viewpoint through a series of dialogues that represent typical discussions & feelings around events like a death, or loss of a job, or marital problems. She shows how recovery can help us get stronger & better at seeing the opportunity from change.  One especially fun section of the book goes into the manner in which her pets (cats & dogs) have interacted with her patients in her home office, and shares how their sensitivity to clients’ moods has made a meaningful difference.

This book functions both as an overall general read for insight into how to see the opportunities that arise with change, as well as specific discussions around types of events we all experience – so you can just read the section that applies to you.

Well-written, thoughtful, enjoyable and with important insight.
