The following provides Dr. Padnick's review of a new book, Where's My Sanity?, by Claudia Sheftel Luiz, PsyaD. Dr. Luiz will present a workshop on Long Island, time and date to be arranged. For further information, please call the Center. 

Released a few months ago and available on Amazon and Kindle, Claudia Luiz's book builds a bridge between the old and the new.
Free of jargon, very readable and digestible, Where's My Sanity? presents a "modern approach" to modern psychoanalysis. Dr. Luiz's "stories that help" illustrate the healing power of emotional communication and direct emotional experience in the therapeutic process.

The book contains nine short stories about eminently relatable individuals, each of whom exposes a dimension of our human condition. Upon reading Where's My Sanity?, a colleague of mine exclaimed it to be "a real jewel." I agree, wholeheartedly. Dr. Luiz makes the concepts and techniques clear and understandable, while weaving her own struggles and vulnerabilities into the stories.

Whether one is currently a patient, a therapist, or an individual considering psychotherapy, Dr. Luiz's book is emotionally touching and personally enriching.
