"In my graduate education in counseling psychology, I found very little information about our emotions. Yet in my work as a therapist and educator, I've seen that emotions are key to healing. Karla McLaren's book offers an outstanding guide to the signals and messages emotions send us, along with clear instructions for intelligent and emotion-supporting actions we can take in response. Karla has made a huge contribution to the well-being of us all; The Language of Emotions will become required reading in all of my courses."
--Nancy Feehan, MFT, adjunct professor of counseling psychology at the University of San Francisco
"Karla McLaren's unique, empathic view of emotions surprisingly revalues even the most "negative" emotions and opens pathways to understanding the depths of the human soul."
--Michael Meade, author of The World Behind the World and The Water of Life
"This book changed the way I relate to others, and to myself, forever."
--Gavin De Becker, author of The Gift of Fear
