“I cannot speak for anyone else but for me in my relationship, this book has been extremely valuable. I found it by random while downloading several samples from books on emotional intimacy. While reading this book I feel like I’m receiving codes that further unlock hidden blockages to unconditional love and that bring me and my man closer energetically. It’s not only the content itself but also the way specific words are put together. This material has helped the dynamic between me and my partner to shift and move past seemingly insurmountable communication problems. I also found this book highly spiritual. I would like to thank the authors deeply for writing and publishing this material.”

Psychological Healing Through Creative Self-Understanding
and Self-Transformation by Dr. Max Hammer

This book focuses on the development of psychological self-understanding, healing psychologically painful inner conflicts, and the basis of psychological and spiritual fulfillment.

Readers will discover a new understanding of effective psychotherapy, groundbreaking diagnostic psychological testing research, and the distinction between the ego self-concept, the experiential self, and the transpersonal self (the real self, the relational self, or the holistic self).

It also clarifies aspects of optimal psychological health, such as authenticity, sincerity, integrity, creativity, intuition, empathy, courage, strength of character, inspiration, unselfish love (or warmhearted caring), emotional security, inner wholeness, vitality, and fulfillment.

Principles of psychological healing and self-transformation can enhance the development of interpersonal relationships, as well as facilitate effective and fulfilling ways of living in society. The authors deeply explored their own psychological pain and experiential truth to write this book, so readers can achieve greater self-understanding, fulfillment, and liberation from psychological pain.

About The Authors: The primary author, Dr. Max Hammer, was a distinguished Psychology Professor and supervisor of graduate students and interns in the clinical psychology, psychotherapy, and counseling practice training program of the Psychology Department at the University of Maine, for many years, as well as a respected psychotherapist and clinical psychology consultant and diagnostician. Dr. Max Hammer was one of the original core clinicians who founded and developed the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Maine, beginning in the 1960’s. In his work with graduate and undergraduate students in that program, Dr. Max Hammer provided a refreshing Humanistic and Transpersonal perspective, with an emphasis on flexible, warmly caring, empathic responsiveness to the needs of the individual psychotherapy client.

The primary author, the late Dr. Max Hammer, was an editor and a major contributor of two previously published books, The theory and Practice of Psychotherapy with Specific Disorders (Springfield, Illinois: Charles C. Thomas Publisher, 1972); and The Practice of Psychotherapy with Children (Homewood, Illinois: Dorsey Press, 1967). He also published about 30 articles in the fields of psychotherapy and clinical psychology.

The primary author, Dr. Max Hammer, is deceased, therefore, this book is managed by his eldest son and secondary contributing author Dr. Barry J. Hammer.

A secondary contributing author is Dr. Alan C. Butler, a distinguished colleague and friend of Dr. Max Hammer’s. Dr. Butler, a Cooperating Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Maine, as well as a psychotherapist, clinical psychology consultant, and diagnostician, was one of the original staff members at the University of Maine counseling center, and served as the Training Director for its internship program for over thirty years, which he was instrumental in developing.

Both Dr. Max Hammer and Dr. Alan C. Butler helped gently nurture and encourage thousands of graduate and undergraduate psychology students in their own individual journeys of personal reflection and transformation. The other secondary contributing author, Dr. Barry J. Hammer, also from Maine, has a specialization in the history of world religions, and for many years has studied the process of psychological and spiritual transformation, and its applicability to enhancing human relationships and compassionate social change.
