Dr. Harriet Lerner, one of our nation’s most loved and respected relationship experts and the author of the classic work The Dance of Anger is back with her new book, Fear and Other Uninvited Guests: Tackling the Anxiety, Fear, and Shame That Keep Us from Optimal Living and Loving. Dr. Lerner shows how fear, anxiety, and shame are the three main culprits behind almost all of the problems that people seek psychological help for-or fail to. Using her wonderfully rich and therapeutic voice, she teaches how we can be our best and bravest selves, even when our hearts are filled with fear and we internalize the shaming messages of others. With examples that run the gamut from the hilarious to the sobering, Dr. Lerner teaches us how to spot and decode the hidden mischief of these discomforting emotions that hold us back in both love and work, and dare to become more powerful than the uninvited guests.
