SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., October 21, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Angela Glaser Bowers, PH.D., who has been in private practice as a licensed psychologist for over 30 years in Scottsdale, Arizona, and received advanced training in clinical hypnosis, has completed her new audiobook "Overcoming: The remarkable story of one woman's triumph over trauma. How the unconventional approaches by her psychologist, and their bond, helped her reclaim her life and flourish": a thought-provoking autobiographical tale that follows Bowers and one of her patients, Emma, as they learn to let go of conventional norms and learn about one another on an incredible journey to bring Emma healing and peace.
"This book tells the story of one of my most challenging clients. It is a description of her journey toward wellness and my experiences as her therapist in what was, at times, a harrowing roller-coaster ride. Decisions I made which were highly unusual and decisions she made that were both self-destructive and, at times, brilliant are chronicled in the story. I have come to the conclusion that we, as therapists, not only love our work but love many of our clients. I was inspired to write this book with the hope that it will be useful for people who have experienced similar moments of self-loathing and desperation. Who hasn't had their dark nights of the soul? I also intend this book to be used by therapists in training, new and seasoned therapists, as well as teachers of therapy, to engender thoughtful reflection and discussion about our profession. I have included discussion questions for each chapter at the end of the book for therapists and for anyone interested in reflecting more about what occurred and about the therapeutic recommendations presented," writes Bowers.
"The events described in the book were real, yet the names and most of the locations were changed to protect her privacy. I received permission from my client to write this story. Our work together changed us both in significant ways. I had kept all my notes, including everything that she had ever written to me throughout the course of therapy. I was greatly challenged. I took risks as a therapist. Many of these risks would probably leave other therapists scratching their heads or asking if I had lost my mind. However, I firmly believe that our work together saved her life. Had I not broken many of the rules and boundaries suggested to people in my profession, I am sure she would not be alive today. Join me on this expedition of transformation and overcoming."
