How can a therapist help his or her clients and ensure that they continue to maintain the insights and motivations learned during therapy beyond termination? Restoration Therapy is the professional resource that introduces the reader to the essential elements of this exciting and effective therapeutic approach.  You will understand not only how to stop destructive cycles in relationships, but also how to move people to practice love and trustworthiness they previously thought was impossible.  Written with Franz Pfitzer, M.D., Restoration Therapy is an invaluable resource for the effective clinician.
