"This book is about subjective experience - especially experiences that lead to change.... The idea of presentness is the key." (p. xiii)
In Daniel Stern's and the Boston Process Change Study Group approaches I found something that I looked for years: the trial of integration of general research based psychology, child development and applied psychology in psychotherapy.
Wundt felt that the psychology needed to be based on scientific research, but dod not found the "spirit". Neuropsychologysts see the "hardware" but can not respond to every day life phenomens on the "software" level, analytical approches found the spirit but forgot the interpersonal, socialpsychology drives everything from the "social" and does not leave place for the person.
This is an "integrator" work, I beleive one of those, which will be the basis of the 21st century psychology and psychotherapy.
I hope it will be soon translated to several languages and initiate also base researches on the nature of "human present moments".
