Deborah A. Kearney, PhD, a practicing psychologist for over thirty years, received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Georgia in 1982. Her commitment to people’s healing led her to create this workbook as a way to expand the reach of healing psychological concepts. Her admiration of her daughter’s talent led her to incorporate her daughter’s artwork, conceiving of the project as one they could create together.
Emily Kearney-Williams, who has been an artist since age two, is now a college sophomore and has won numerous awards for her drawings and paintings, including some of the ones in this workbook. Emily and her parents live in Georgia and like being outside, hiking, kayaking, camping and traveling, artichokes, chocolate, word play, animals, laughing out loud, and being with family and friends.
This workbook is a reflection of their interests and values, as well as a practical application of psychological principles DK finds helpful to people.
