MEDIA REVIEWS

Havens’s views on psychotherapy and the work of mental health practitioners are interesting and provocative. Sitting beside Leston Havens and letting him share thoughts with you is time well spent. - Simon H. Budman, Contemporary Psychology

With considerable insight, Leston Havens offers us a fine new glimpse into the art of psychotherapy… What every reader will get from reading A Safe Place is an unforgettable sense of a professional healer who is so empathetic that one can almost see his mind reach out to embrace another. - Richard Flaste, New York Times Book Review

Capacious intelligence, generous spirit, and quirky grace characterize this collection of essays… Havens introduces a powerful humanity to the case study, using his experiences of [patients] to illustrate what seemed to work, what mistakes were made, and what conclusions might cautiously be drawn. - Publishers Weekly
