These are books I often recommend to my clients to supplement their therapy experience. I hope you find them helpful.
Note: Some of these books have been around a long time. Simply because the publishing date may be old, does not dismiss the quality of the information presented in the book. In fact, one of the books listed below was first published over one hundred years ago and is still in print. One is actually out of print and will take some doing to get a copy. Challenge yourself. Amazon.com is one of the best resources on the planet for locating books. There are others, so use them and see where these readings take you.
