Overcoming is an educational self-help book about how we think. It teaches basic psychological concepts that we all should know.
Judith Fowles says, “From an early age, we are taught basic math and English so we can function in society. We would be better off as a society if we were also taught the basics of how our minds work, which, as it turns out, is often against us.”
Overcoming is designed for the person who seeks better understanding of self and others, for the professional to use during therapy sessions, and for teaching basic psychological concepts experientially to high school, college, and graduate school students.
