Editorial Reviews


''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 --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Author and National Award-Winning Psychiatrist

''Helping others brings me enormous joy. During my 40 years as a practicing psychiatrist it has been my honor to help thousands of patients ease emotional pain, end aloneness, and find self-love. I practice psychiatry and psychotherapy using 'The Biopsychosocial Model' to treat the 'Whole Person,' and will do 'Whatever It Takes' to understand each individual's unique genetic, biological, psychological, social, and life-stage characteristics; to help my patients feel well, recover their health, and improve their relationships with others, and with themselves. While it has been a great privilege to be placed in a position of such trust, one of my deepest sources of frustration has been my inability to alleviate the suffering of greater numbers of people. The constraints of distance and time once seemed insurmountable. And so I write a weekly blog, and have written a book, with the hope that it will enable me to reach out and help many more people. Perhaps even you and the ones you love. If you suffer from emotional pain that just won't go away, feel alone at work or at home, suffer from low self-esteem, or endure challenging love relations, read my blogs and my book. I wrote them for you, to bring you hope.''

— Bruce Alan Kehr, M.D.

He feels that the practice of psychiatry is both ''a privilege, and a calling.'' His book, ''Becoming Whole: A Healing Companion to Ease Emotional Pain and Find Self-Love,'' is the culmination of his years of experience treating thousands of patients. By systematically teaching the basic principles of psychiatry to enable people to help themselves and those they love, and powerfully illustrated by stories of patients in treatment, ''Becoming Whole,'' is devoted to helping:
  • Anyone suffering from emotional distress that just won't go away
  • Patients in psychotherapy who are not getting better
  • Psychotherapists who would like to better understand the underlying biological basis of the symptoms experienced by their clients
  • Patients in treatment with a psychiatrist who have not fully recovered
