The pioneers in our field—Freud, Jung, Perls, Satir, Minuchin, and others—all believed that to call themselves therapists they needed to go beyond technique to offer genuine insight into what it means to be human. Such insights are rooted in wisdom, and we've invited some of the wisest souls in the fields of psychology and psychotherapy today to talk to us about what it means to be wise. They'll help to identify the qualities and practices that will allow us to cultivate wisdom in our own lives and in our work.
With Mary Pipher, Irvin Yalom, Eugene Gendlin, Tara Brach, Ron Siegel, and Daniel Kahneman.

With Erving Polster, Peggy Papp, Richard Schwartz, Steve Andreas, and Jeffrey Zeig
