It is a rare experience in today's saturated literature market to read something that both inspires and transforms one's soul. Drs. Shuler, Keller-Dupree, and Cook have managed to do both by creating a text that speaks to our human desire to cognitively consume information, while affectively experiencing it in relationship with others. This book is truly a transformational masterpiece. -- Nick T. Ogle, Ph.D.

This book is about growth. It is about transformation. And it is about courage and awareness. In this book, readers are given a bird's eye view into the transformational journeys of counselors, trainers, and supervisors navigating life and the relationships that promote their growth. Just as reflection is a vital quality in personal development, the sharing of one's story has the potential to promote the growth of reader and author alike. This book is a heartfelt compilation of stories designed to promote awareness of each person's humanity and the transcendental power of human connection. -- Thelma Duffey, Ph.D.
