Shelley Stokes, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist in private practice specializing in the disorders of the self, and Sherron Lewis, LMFT, a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in individual and interpersonal conflict and personal development and a freelance artist, have completed their book “Sit Down and Dialogue with Yourself: Understanding the Multiplicity of Our Self-States”: the third in a series of books exploring the theme of becoming and expressing one’s real self.

The authors state, “Sit Down and Dialogue with Yourself: Understanding the Multiplicity of Our Self-States” is about finding, listening to, and giving voice to the many internal voices that come from the varying self-states that comprise that vital, subjective core of authentic self-expression that is the center of that complex entity we call ‘me.’ Its basic premises are grounded in much of psychologist and psychoanalyst Philip Bromberg’s writings on self-states, enactments, and dissociation, particularly as articulated in his books, ‘Standing in the Spaces’, ‘Awakening the Dreamer’, and ‘The Shadow of the Tsunami’.

"In this book we attempt to not only capture Dr. Bromberg’s contributions but also take them into new directions that are uniquely our own in addressing centrally important psychological, motivational, emotional, and interpersonal processes involved in the development and practice of real-self expression.

"This is the third book that we have written together which explores the theme of becoming and expressing one’s real self—the first being Letting Go and Taking the Chance to be Real and the second, The Trauma of Shame and the Making of the Self. In each of these books, many practical everyday examples, as well as clinical vignettes, are provided for both the general reader and the seasoned professional.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Shelley Stokes, Ph.D. and Sherron Lewis, LMFT’s book is an invaluable resource for both counseling professionals and readers seeking greater insight into the struggles we all share.
