Avrum Geurin Weiss author of Change Happens: When to Try Harder and When to Stop Trying So Hard ($29.95 Rowman & Littlefield Pub)
Change Happens is at once an emotionally resonant and stimulating book that will touch a deep chord with readers who are seeking to understand the big and small struggles in their lives and an insightful companion for those struggling with a specific change or trying to bring about a change in their lives. Here, Avrum Weiss offers insights and lessons that are relevant to change across all life situations, including change in our personal lives, relationships, places of work, communities, and the larger world. He helps readers understand when trying harder is the best approach to change, and when not trying so hard is more appropriate. Each chapter introduces a key element in the process of change as well as fresh concepts for understanding how best to navigate the changes we all face at one time or another in our lives.
Avrum Geurin Weiss has been a therapist and teacher-of-therapists for over 30 years and holds an adjunct faculty position in the department of Psychology at Georgia State University. He is the director of the Pine River Psychotherapy Training Institute.
