In Adventures in Human Understanding the story is revealed as a therapeutic tool. It is the medium by which lessons may be learned and persist in the memory; providing metaphors for life, and meaning from our experiences. Leading psychologist John G. Watkins PhD has embodied his extensive knowledge of the mind in the 'adventures' gathered in this book. Each story is followed by a psychological analysis, ensuring that this book will be an effective instrument for facilitating therapy, and an enjoyable source of stories for everyone.

'With a preface by Woltemade Hartman PhD. Adventures in Human Understanding rivets the reader's attention until the last page is turned. These fictional short stories for exploring the self are rich in human drama and deeply resonate with our own understanding of how we humans strive throughout our lives to grow and become whole. Dr. Watkins writes with joy, humor, insight, and wisdom about the struggles of people of all ages from startin' time to quittin' time. He invites us all to share with him this dance of life.'
- Peter B. Bloom MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
