Disconnection hurts, and connection heals, so if we are to repair ourselves, we will do well to carefully consider how we might become connected again.
BRISBANE, Australia (PRWEB) May 11, 2021
Connection injuries are common. Many of us do not feel like we belong, many of us do not feel valued, many of us feel ashamed and betrayed. Psychologists are already at a stretch to meet the demand, and with the foreboding prospect of increasing levels of mental health problems in the future, many of us want to know what we can do to help ourselves get better.
Dr. Jonathan Andrews MAPS FCCLP has noticed a pattern in Christian clients who do recover their mental health. “They all connect,” Dr Andrews says “and often they do it in three ways: They connect with themselves, they connect with others and they connect with God.”
Using his 20 years of experience as a practicing clinical psychologist, together with biblical foundations, insights from literature and scientific evidence, “The Reconnected Heart: How relationships can help us heal” (published by WestBow Press) leads readers through the steps of healing. Andrews guides them through the chaos of psychological injuries caused by disconnection and towards a reconnected heart — to set them up for a life of trust, self-esteem, honor and belonging.
“There are many books on this issue that are helpful. What makes this book different is that it teaches how to get our relationships back on track so that we can repair the deep psychological injuries many of us have,” Andrews says. “Disconnection hurts, and connection heals, so if we are to repair ourselves, we will do well to carefully consider how we might become connected again. By establishing a three-point connection plan, we can set ourselves up for recovery.”
“The Reconnected Heart: How relationships can help us heal” aims to remind readers that injuries of connection can be profound, distressing and difficult to budge, but there is great hope. Relationships do hurt people, but relationships also heal people. It happens every day.
