Description


Where Are Your (K)nots? asks you to ponder a fundamental question: Where the hell am I and how the hell did I get here? It asks you to be curious about where you are stuck in your life and the experiences, from the way you were parented to life's events, that lead to emotional and psychological knots.

See what people are saying about (K)nots:


This book is delightful, a breath of fresh air. It’s a clear, simple (but not simplistic) description of the psychodynamic process, easy to grasp, engaging, thoughtful and funny. The book draws you in, opens doors and offers a guide to reflecting about one’s life in a way that would feel new to many not exposed to this way of thinking. It offers a way to get unstuck in your life.  Dr. Finkelstein also personalizes it a bit with his own experiences, both growing up and as a therapist.  I recommend you begin the journey to understand your (K)nots. Madeline Lippman, PhD., Clinical Psychologist 


Dr. Finkelstein’s book “Where  Are Your (K)nots?, provides a clear, concise and wise description of why humans operate the way we do and how to take an inventory of your life to ensure it is as fulfilling as possible. As a psychotherapist and founder of a mental health organization, I am excited to have something accessible and approachable to support my clients in their journey toward self-actualization, and I look forward to selling the book in my storefront! Lia Avellino, L.C.S.W.


Just as we need instruction when we are young to learn how to tie our shoes, we also need guidance on how to unloosen the knots that accumulate over time and keep us tied to worn out ways. Dr Finkelstein’s book does just that. Its a wonderful primer to understanding why we are stuck in our lives and helps us to untie our knots so that we are free to live the life we dream of.  Linda Arbus, L.C.S.W.


What’s (k)not to love? Dr. Finkelstein has distilled 30+ years of wisdom as a psychologist into a simple yet deeply profound way to understand what causes our (k)nots, the ways we may unconsciously hinder ourselves in life in response to old painful experiences. Dr. Finkelstein provides a clear roadmap to begin undoing those (k)nots, which allow us the possibility to live a life free from what is holding us back. “When you begin this process, you can start to imagine turning  “nots into why nots,”  a line from Dr. Finkelstein’s book,  which exemplifies his clever wordplay and the beautiful simplicity of his wise counsel.  Tracy Robin, LCSW,  Associate Provost for Student Health Services at The New School


At a time when as a culture we are dealing with sky high numbers of people struggling with anxiety, depression and trauma, Dr Finkelstein’s new book provides a straightforward roadmap for understanding some of the invisible knots that hinder many of us from functioning well. The concept that our past experiences influence our present level of functioning is brought to life by the clinical examples covered in this easy to read and clever book. Lynne Kipnis, Ph.D, Clinical Psychologist


Dr. Jerry Finkelstein, PhD, elucidates the process of psychotherapy for people exploring the possibility of learning more about their inner selves. With an engaging, witty voice, Dr. Finkelstein takes the fear out of exploring the unknown, piquing readers' curiosity and excitement. It's an invaluable guide for both the novice and those seeking to learn more about the power of psychotherapy. Sarah J. Person, LCSW-R, Psychotherapist

 

Dr. Finkelstein’s, “Where are Your (K)nots” is a gift that illuminates the neglected and nagging knots within us all.  Bringing together a lifetime of clinical experience, we are given a clear roadmap to understanding the self and healing our hurts. I am excited to give new and current clients this book to help them understand the therapy process Beyond the therapy realm, this book is for anyone curious about understanding themselves and others! Yasmin Mohabbat, M.D., Child, Adolescent  and Adult Psychiatrist

 

Where Are Your (K)nots”  is clear and concise. It simplifies the often overwhelming task of trying to make sense of the origins of suffering. A helpful text for clinicians and patients alike. Hannah Goldman, PhD, Clinical Psychologist

Steven
Where Are Your (K)nots? In “Where are Your (K)nots?”, Dr Finkelstein provides a lucid overview of human psychopathology. He outlines the factors that contribute to the various mental maladies that affect us and our friends and relatives. The writing is crystal clear. For those with some familiarity with the subject matter, the author does an excellent job in putting the topic into a logical context. For readers who have somehow avoided dealing with these issues, the book provides an excellent introduction to the mental “knots” most of us have faced – or will in the future. It would be a really helpful read for anyone grappling with psychological barriers to a more productive and meaningful life. It would also be appropriate for anyone who has a relative or friend trying to cope with the demons of 21st century life. Steven Rothman, MD Clinical Professor of Neurology SUNY Upstate College of Medicine at Syracuse Read more
