Author, artist, and clinical psychologist Robert W. Firestone and collaborator Joyce Cattlet dig deep into the psychology of destructive behavior—both its source and how it manifests itself in personal relationships between men, women, couples, and families, and in the social arena.
They posit that if we can understand the source of aggressiveness and learn to cope with the urges it impels, we can better rear future generations and improve mental health practices in general. This position offers a hope of altering what many people consider to be humankinds’s basically unethical nature.
“Firestone and Catlett have written a valuable and well-researched, solid contribution to the field of ethics….the authors have provided an illuminating mirror, with optimism and hope for correcting that which ails us as individuals and society as a whole.”
