At a time when the world is reeling from the violence thrust upon it, this volume offers new insights into the answers being sought to the question being universally asked: why such violence and terror should exist? The issues of violence, in particular that done to and by children, and the learning and behavioral difficulties that so often accompany it, are written about in a storytelling manner, with the aim of making them easily understood and thereby helping to slow the momentum of a humankind apparently bent on destroying itself. The serious mismatch between our current beliefs about the causes of these problems and the methods being used to redress them, as measured by their statistically massive failure, quite clearly indicates that we have been missing something very fundamental in these equations. We are rapidly moving into knowledge about the roles of memory and consciousness and their energies in human behavior. Thus the time is right to engage general awareness about how they play relentlessly into every function and dysfunction of body, mind, and soul and the belief systems of culture and religion that drive their energies in human thought and behavior and thus, interactions with other. This book is an indispensable and thought-provoking guide for those involved with children, the adults they become, and the future of the earth and her inhabitants.
"Dr Anderson has once again awakened our deepest sensitivities to the beginnings and consequences of human potential, both constructive and destructive. Based upon extensive education and experience, her knowledge and application of science and spirituality converge on the most destructive of evils--the ability and tendency of the human race to deny its soul, destroy its body, disintegrate its environment, and obliterate its value--and even itself--from the face of the earth! And once again she draws attention to what can and should be done to minimize and even, over time, prevent this carnage.
"Dr Anderson's Taking Out the Violence: Shedding Light on the Science and Soul of Human Behavior is a must read for people and governments worldwide."

"This wonderful book tackles the root causes of the escalating violence in our societies that seems to be a reflection of ecological imbalances, both inner and outer. Dr Anderson focuses on young people. With a lifetime of experience as a psychiatrist, pediatrician and spiritual being she has pioneered therapies that connect and transform the very energy of our children's souls. These are not only important to heal the traumatized but are an inspired contribution to ensure balanced and resilient lives for everyone. Her methods should become a part of educational systems everywhere."

"A unique and ground breaking book that with painstaking sensitivity describes the origins of the violence that sets humankind against itself and beckons to the answers that will intercept and change the energies that drive it."
