Recommended Books - under construction
This section holds a wide variety of books that I have found useful for a number of specific reasons, either in practice or personally. In most cases, they have been brought to my attention by others who have also found them useful. Some are available now by Audio, which is a wonderful way to experience books about psychological principles, emotions, trauma, and relationships. I will eventually begin to complete brief summary/recommendation/reviews.
