Julie de Azevedo Hanks draws on her experience as a psychotherapist and clinical social worker, as well as extensive research, to show us how to…express our own voices. But at the same time that she provides us with tools for self-empowerment, she shows how we can do this without dis-empowering others. This is one of many things that makes this book special.
