Free Event: Talking Back to Dr. Phil

A Stepping Stones Books & Gifts Free Event

An Evening with David Bedrick
JD, Dipl., PW 

Date:  Friday March 14
Time:  7pm
Center for Spiritual Living Santa Rosa
2075 Occidental Road

"I’m interested in what makes people and organizations tick. I’ve spent half my life trying to understand the dynamics of power and abuse, conflict and resolution, as well as how people’s gifts and natures manifest and unfold. In the 1980’s, I founded a management consulting firm, which I ran for 12 years, working with companies large and small in order to foster empowerment, development, and meaning in the lives of workers across America.

"But this was not enough; I became more and more interested in the inner workings of people—why some thrived and others failed. I refocused my life: becoming a therapist, a counselor, and educator, ultimately becoming certified as a Diplomate of Process Work and teaching psychology at the University level for eight years. My focus has been understanding body symptoms, addictions, dream interpretation, conflict facilitation, and organizational development."
—David Bedrick

In his new book, Talking Back to Dr. Phil:  Alternatives to Mainstream Psychology, counselor, educator and attorney David Bedrick uses examples from the television show, Dr. Phil, to show how our culture's pop psychology quick fixes leave people feeling confused and inadequate.
David will discuss with us a fresh approach to addressing our disturbing feelings and behaviors, which encourages a love-based psychology rooted in the belief that there is profound meaning in our struggles, which can be healed when compassionately reframed.
David Bedrick spent eight years on the faculty of the University of Phoenix and taught courses for the US Navy, 3M, the American Society of Training and Development, the Process Work Institute, and psychological associations.  An expert in counseling individuals and couples, Bedrick focused on domestic relations and family law, as well as women's empowerment, children's rights and more.
Please join us to learn why David left the practice of law for a career of writing and teaching to a larger audience.
