"Innovative and very challenging... not only locating therapy within systemic, political and cultural contexts but also providing much useful clinical advice -- highly recommended!" - Professor Eia Asen, Clinical Director of the Marlborough Family Service, London, and Visiting Professor at University College London, UK "Terrific! As the title promises, it taught me to break my heart; it also expanded my mind and filled my soul with gladness.

Barnett Pearce, Fielding Graduate University, California, USA a
