A Book and a Chat with Dr. Jennifer Freed
"Seduction is just the practice of artful stretching".
Writes today’s radio show guest Dr. Jennifer Freed, or rather I should say, so says Stanley the Cat the star of her latest book “Lessons of Stanley the Cat: Nine Lives of Everyday Wisdom”.
For more than 25 years, Jennifer Freed, Ph.D., has been a licensed marriage and family counselor, group psychotherapist and educator. She was the Clinical Director at Pacifica Graduate Institute, one of the country’s leading centers for depth psychology, where she continues to serve as a professor and workshop leader. A recognized expert on behavioral matters such as teen bullying, character development, marriage and family relationships, and diversity issues, she is alos co-founder/director of the highly successful teen program called “The Academy of Healing Arts (AHA!), as well as a renowned psychological astrologer.
About “Lessons of Stanley the Cat”
Never let people know how fast you are.
Appear slow in all things, and less is expected of you.
When someone is on the computer too long, help them by distracting them, or walk lightly on their keyboard.
So advises Stanley, a remarkably astute cat with a keen eye for the important things in life. Perhaps you don’t have time for yoga, can’t afford therapy, or wouldn’t dare cry to mother. If so, let Stanley be your guide. Lessons from Stanley the Cat offers wise and witty maxims from Stanley himself, translated by his doting psychotherapist (human) parent, Jennifer Freed. Whether you’re a cat lover or prefer companions of the canine variety, Stanley’s warmth and insight are sure to brighten even the grayest days.
It is a wonderful book that will not only bring a smile to your heart but also provoke thoughts and often discussion, the kind of book for all the family, from your cat loving ancient aunt to a dog loving teenager, there is something for everybody.
During the show we heard not only about all the work this seemingly non-stop lady does, but also how there is a second book “Further Lessons from Stanley the Cat and his Friends” hopefully on the way.
So sit back and listen to today's thoroughly interesting and entertaining show as I host today's "A Book and a Chat with Dr. Jennifer Freed".
