Finalist, Psychology (Adult Nonfiction)

Alice Barber's collection of essays is for anyone seriously interested in understanding how children experience the caretaking adults in their lives. Ms. Barber is a psychotherapist who treats emotionally troubled children. She invites us to join her in untangling the disturbing, sometimes terrifying relational narratives that children persuade her to re-enact with them. Through this work, she finds her image of herself as a therapist, and as a person, shaped and reshaped.
