"…Empowering Dialogues Within may be the answer to your prayers (or to your questions to your Higher Self). Even though the reader's basic approach to therapy might not be psychosynthesis, I felt the author did an excellent job of including psychosynthesis with other ideologies. I would highly recommend this book to any practicing therapist/counselor...I loved this book." (AAP News; January 2009)
