Voices in the Family: A Therapist Talks About Listening, Openness & Healing

From the acclaimed therapist, radio host, and author of LETTERS TO SAM: A wise guide to listening and healing.

Daniel Gottlieb is a practicing family therapist with a radical approach: he talks readily about his experiences, feelings, and reflections…even his life as a quadriplegic. This extraordinary attitude has generated the kind of trust, openness, and inspiration that has made his call-in radio show an outstanding success. Voices in the Family captures Dr. Gottlieb’s profound sense of caring, warmth, and wisdom. By sharing fascinating stories from his private practice, he provides a shining demonstration of how to make peace with ourselves, our families, and our partners. He compassionately discusses ways of dealing with our parents (whether we’re 15 or 50), handling the complex problems of love and marriage, and helping our children gain self-confidence and independence. Based on 20 years of experience, Dr. Gottlieb’s advice is both fresh and effective. By allowing us a glimpse of his own heart, he helps us heal our own.
