Robert W. Firestone (Author)
Robert W. Firestone, PhD, is a psychologist and author whose best known books, The Fantasy Bond, Voice Therapy, Combating Destructive Thought Processes, and Compassionate Child-Rearing, outline a fully realized and comprehensive theory on neurosis and human development. His studies on negative thought processes and their associated effect have led to the development of voice therapy, an advanced therapeutic methodology to uncover and contend with aspects of self-destructive and self-limiting behaviors. Recently, Firestone authored Overcoming the Destructive Inner Voice, a book of short stories inspired by his experiences as a psychotherapist.


"Robert Firestone, clearly one of the most influential therapists of our generation, and Tamsen Firestone, have teamed up to write Daring to Love. This book is the definitive guide for integrating voice therapy into relationships. Since the text is packed from cover to cover with valuable journal exercises, it is a wonderful reference for therapists as well as clients who can use it for bibliotherapy. The key insight is that most individuals need to stop pushing away love, and this book provides a wealth of useful interventions."
--Howard Rosenthal, EdD, author of Encyclopedia of Counseling and Encyclopedia of Human Services--Howard Rosenthal, EdD
"Daring to Love is a wonderfully wise, beautifully written, and eminently practical book for anyone wishing to establish and maintain deeper, richer, and more lasting close relationships. It distills decades of research and clinical experience aimed at understanding and overcoming personal and relational barriers to happy, psychologically healthy living. The book contains many useful, personally engaging exercises based on the authors' voice therapy, organized around specific barriers to intimacy. As a relationship researcher who frequently writes about attachment theory and close relationships, I receive numerous requests for books that help a person overcome relationship problems. Daring to Love will now be on my short list of enthusiastic recommendations."
--Phillip R. Shaver, PhD, distinguished professor of psychology emeritus, University of California, Davis; coeditor of Handbook of Attachment; and coauthor of Adulthood--Phillip R. Shaver, PhD
"This book invites us into raw vulnerability only made possible by the competent, compassionate hands of two authors who have lived--and loved--the principles they set forth. Perhaps the last paragraph of this book explains why it deserves to be read, integrated, and actualized into practice: 'Love is worth believing in. Love is worth fighting for. Love is worth the personal challenge. No other endeavor offers higher rewards.'"
--Pat Love, EdD, LMFT, author of The Truth About Love--Pat Love, EdD, LMFT
