Historical and Philosophical Foundations of Professional Psychology
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Paul Larson astutely unfolds this project with Aristotelian phronesis: translating history for situational practice in the contemporary role transformation of psychologists as 'health service professionals.' Larson's work explicates how this will happen by beautifully tying together history, critical thinking, and pragmatics so the reader can experience the history and systems of psychology as T. S. Eliot would have it: 'to arrive where we started and know it for the first time.' Bravo!"
--Todd DuBose, Chicago School of Professional Psychology
"Psychological Healing is a remarkable, unique contribution to the historical tradition of psychology. Larson has chosen to emphasize a number of themes and traditions in psychology that are overlooked by the vast majority of textbooks on the history of psychology. In particular, he has presented a vision of the history of psychology that presents its heart in discussing its origins in spirituality, pioneers of its clinical traditions, and many other topics--like humanistic psychology--that have rarely been written about in such an insightful and compelling way."
