About the Author
Marty Livingston, a psychologist with more than four decades of clinical experience, has written two books and many articles about dealing with early loss, vulnerability, and the process of healing and growth.
Marty Livingston earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University and holds certificates in individual psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and group therapy from the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health.
Dr. Livingston has more than four decades of clinical experience and is the author of two prior books. Searching is his first novel.
Livingston's many articles dealing with early loss, vulnerability, and the process of healing and growth have appeared in several publications including International Journal for Self Psychology, GROUP: The Journal of the Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society, and the Journal of Couples Therapy, among others.
Dr. Livingston taught at Postgraduate Center, The Training and Research Institute for Self Psychology, Hunter College, George Washington University, and several other institutes. He is the director of the Group Therapy Training Program at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health in New York City and is in private practice, stressing work with couples as well as individuals.
When he's not counseling or writing books, Marty's identity is centered on being an avid tennis player, often ranked in the top 20 players in his age group in the New York/ New Jersey area. Livingston was born and raised in Brooklyn. He is married with two grown children and two grandchildren.
Searching is a sensitive and moving story of a boy growing up in Brooklyn and at a college in rural Pennsylvania during his freshman year there. The book is an engrossing study of the psychology of loss, to the very young and to the adults around him. By force of circumstances and his own nature, from a very early age Jimmy is cast as an outsider constantly searching for meaning and connection to others. This story is one of his trials and triumphs and ultimately a tribute to the human spirit. I recommend it for readers looking for something more than mere entertainment.
