Insightful reading to help build relationships
I would suggest that david bedrick's book, "talking back to dr. phil: alternatives to mainstream psychology" needs to be required reading for anyone interacting with people. bedrick's research and perspective goes beyond the psychology field to offer insight and developmental opportunities for many occupations and fields, i.e. human resources and organizational development professionals, religious occupations, coaches, leaders, human services, etc. written using easy-to-read stories and compelling research, bedrick pin-points with laser accuracy the importance of seeing how cultural and mainstream judgments hinder our society. as our communities and relationships struggle, this book offers relief from our own constraints. these constraints start with an individual's soul and impacts families, communities, and our society as a whole. his love-based approach offers a new path that could ultimately erode the polarities that exist today.
