ABOUT THE AUTHOR
David Narang, PhD, is a psychologist who practices in Santa Monica, California. In his work, he has found that the people who come to him frequently want to work on problematic patterns they find themselves repeating in all their relationships—what psychology refers to as attachment styles. A psychologist, meditator and Buddhist, he helps his clients to construct good relationships with themselves and others. His motivation for writing Leaving Loneliness was to help large numbers of people end unnecessary emotional pain and build thriving connections with themselves and others.
ABOUT THE BOOK
‘Leaving Loneliness : A Workbook: Building Relationships with Yourself and Others’ by Dr. David Narang
We are not meant to be lonely. Building thriving relationships with yourself and others is one of the most rewarding parts of a life well lived. However, many people have difficulty building satisfying closeness, and many others feel trapped in patterns of painful and stormy relationships. If you have experienced repetitive, long-term difficulties with the way you form relationships, there is a way to understand your problems, and to stop them from spoiling your life. Using the precise and practical exercises in this workbook, you can harness the strength of an area of psychology called attachment theory, integrated with Eastern mindfulness practices, to assist you on your path out of loneliness. Exercises in the book will help you to identify specific problems in your relationship style and tackle those problems with precision, helping you build close, warm, and consistent relationships with yourself and others.
Anyone can learn how to build more successful relationships by using the easy-to-follow exercises in this book. Dr. Narang’s straightforward book Leaving Loneliness: A Workbook is a well-written, engaging read.
