“Loving What May Sting” – in Counseling Today online

Good books and therapy are two of my favorite things. In this article for Counseling Today online (a publication of the American Counseling Association), “Loving What May Sting: In Literature and In Therapy,” I explore the importance of a good book and how it can emphasize the same elements of therapy. I specifically discuss Sue Monk Kidd’s book The Secret Life of Bees and how it coincides with the central themes of Internal Family Systems therapy; namely, accepting all parts of the self, even the parts that may sting.
