Product description


"I use psychotherapy and counselling models and methods, including multiplicity, in my professional coaching work. Like John I am sceptical about the "absolute truth" of any such models, but I find that when I and a client use them as if they are true, while all the time knowing that they are not, the work can be very productive. This book deepens my understanding of the processes which I use, and it will refine my work. I found it fascinating." - Sir John Whitmore PhD, Chair of Performance Consultants International, The Institute of Human Excellence, and a strong advocate of the use of the Transpersonal in coaching

"John Rowan’s book is an impressive and audacious attempt to overcome the "narcissism of small differences" so typical of many psychotherapeutic traditions. As a bridge builder with an open and integrative mind, he throws new light on the broad literature about subpersonalities. By introducing dialogical self theory, he presents a compelling new vision that brings together personal and transpersonal phenomena that were treated too long as dichotomous domains in the literature on the self." - Hubert J.M. Hermans, Radboud University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands

"This book provides an in depth tour of multiplicity and the dialogical self. If you want to know what is happening on the leading edge of psychotherapeutic work read this. An integrative text that will inform and challenge you." - Leslie S. Greenberg, York University, Canada
