The innovative concepts and practical methods of Process-Oriented Psychology (process work)--many of which have never been published--are explored in this highly unusual textbook. The goals of process work lay not in traditional psychotherapeutic theory, but rather in the unique wisdom and path of process, or nature, itself. Each of the 32 chapters represents a "class" in which one of the principles is highlighted and investigated from many angles, allowing the author to present the highly structured content in a playful way that is both attractive and useful to helpers and therapists from many different backgrounds.
