Dear Members and Visitors to GoodTherapy.org,
Today, the GoodTherapy.org team and many GoodTherapy.org members enjoyed the first event in our Fall Teleconference Series: ‘Walking The Healing Walk with Power,’ presented by Judith Barr, LMHC. Big “thank yous” to Judith for presenting to GoodTherapy.org members her very important work on healing the abuse of power in our world. It was a unique and supportive gathering that gave participants room to reflect, explore, and share with each other how each of us has been impacted by the recent political and economic events.
In Judith’s latest Book, ‘Power Abused, Power Healed’, Judith weaves fairy tale with current life events and reveals teachings about misuse and abuse of power and the vast healing that is possible, individually and globally.
Sylvia Brinton Perera says about Judith’s book: “Because Judith Barr’s parables are deceptively simple, they help to raise consciousness in non-threatening ways. They creep under our defenses to wake us up.”
And Roger Woolger has called Power Abused, Power Healed “the best book on power and its abuse by therapists and spiritual healers since Guggenbuhl-Craig’s trenchant Power in the Helping Professions and states: “It should be required reading for all therapists and healers in training.”
I was moved by Judith’s book and how sensitively it demonstrated the subtle and not so subtle ways power can be abused, particularly in the healing professions.
I encourage all of you to visit Judith’s website, www.powerabusedpowerhealed.com, where you can get more information about Judith, her work, and her book. Judith is also soon to be releasing her new DVD presentation, The Truth about Power, which will be available on her website in a few days.
Thanks to all of you who attended today’s event,
Noah Rubinstein, LMFT
Founder and CEO
