    About the Book

    Ease Emotional Pain. Improve Love Relations. Help Children Manage Crises.
    Filled with warmth, empathy, and hope, Becoming Whole systematically teaches you how to ease emotional pain in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Powerfully illustrated by “Sessions”–stories of patients in treatment–and for the first time unveiling what goes on inside the heart and mind of a psychotherapist as they heal a patient’s tangled heart, Becoming Whole is devoted to:
      Easing emotional distress that just won’t go away
      Improving intimate love relations
      Helping parents with children, adolescents, or young adults in crisis
    Insightful, powerful, and revealing, Becoming Whole is not only a healing companion, but a valuable life companion as well.
    Proceeds from your purchase of my book will be used to directly help rape survivors and abused children.

    Praise for Becoming Whole

    “Becoming Whole is best described as a ‘pocket therapist.’ Weaving together self-help, psychotherapy, and medication, this book is a must-read for anyone striving to create a more fulfilling life.”
    —Harry L. Leider, M.D., MBA, Chief Medical Officer of Walgreens
    “Becoming Whole gave my family game-changing, life-saving strategies. Dr. Kehr delivers on his promise to be a healing companion. The book is destined to become a classic.”
    —Mary LoVerde, Hall of Fame speaker and author of I Used to Have a Handle on Life but It Broke
    “Becoming Whole feels so personal, as if I’m sitting and talking with the doctor in his office. I love the vivid, real cases in which we can find ourselves, and the step-by-step tactics to do something. It’s an emotional, visual, and auditory feast. My brain is on fire with new energy about what it means to be human.”
    —Scott Halford, Emmy Award Winning Writer and Producer and Best-Selling Author of Activate Your Brain
    “This book is invaluable for anyone seeking solace from pain.”
    —Leslie D. Michelson, Author of The Patient’s Playbook
