Author Tags: Advice

Kathleen Keating has a graduate degree in clinical psychology and practiced as a psychotherapist, mental health educator and consultant for 35 years. The Hug Therapy Book is a playful parody on therapy with a serious message about the importance of compassion and the healing touch. "Because we live in a world in which the sharp edges of broken hearts become knives of rage, grief and even violence, my life is a journey to free myself and others from fear and despair. By the grace of love, I have come to rest in the wisdom that living is a cycle of breaking and mending. Since I am forever a part of both, I have chosen the path of compassion...There is no other way the world can survive."
