Our identity is an indication of how we feel about ourselves and how others feel about us; it is an important part of our existence. Our psyche is like a mirror trying to re¿ect the world around us, but what we are seeing in our mirror is not an exact replica of our surroundings. In Sailor's Psychology, author Dr. Chester Litvin explores a host of issues relating to human psychology and existence.
Drawing on cultural insight, Litvin, a psychotherapist, uses a sailor's analogy to discuss the human voyage to ¿nd the self-to know who we are and accept it. Sailor's Psychology examines the human spirit through a thorough discussion of
splitting from the self;
- splitting in the child;
- looking for meeting;
- meetings with the self;
- meetings with fragments; and
- meetings after restructurings.
In Sailor's Psychology, Litvin shows that when our psyche becomes whole we are ready for dialogs and real meetings, which are the true goals of our life.
