Robert W. Firestone

Robert W. Firestone, Ph.D., clinical psychologist, author, and artist. Dr Firestone was in private practice of psychotherapy from 1957 to 1979. In 1979, he joined the Glendon Association as its consulting theorist. His major publications include The Fantasy Bond, Compassionate Child-Rearing, and Fear of Intimacy. His studies of negative thought processes led to the development of an innovative therapeutic methodology described in Voice Therapy, Suicide and the Inner Voice, Combating Destructive Thought Processes, Creating a Life of Meaning and Compassion: The Wisdom of Psychotherapy and Sex and Love in Intimate Relationships. In collaboration with his daughter, Dr Lisa Firestone, he developed three assessment instruments: The Firestone Assessment of Self-Destructive Thoughts [FAST], The Firestone Assessment of Suicide Intent [FASI] and the Firestone Assessment of Violent Thoughts [FAVT].
