About the Author:

David K. Reynolds is recognized as the leading Western authority on Japanese psychotherapies. He is a former faculty member of the UCLA School of Public Health, the USC School of Medicine, and the University of Houston. His books have been published by university presses (California, Chicago, Hawaii, and New York) and popular presses in the U.S., Japan, China, Europe, Australia, and elsewhere. In 1988 the World Health Organization sent Dr. Reynolds to China to train psychiatrists there in Constructive Living. He currently lectures and conducts workshops around the Pacific, including approximately three months in spring and three months in fall in Japan lecturing and consulting in Japanese. He is the only non-Japanese to receive the Kora Prize and the Morita Prize by the Morita Therapy Association of Japan.

From Library Journal:

Constructive Living (CL) derives from the practice of Naikan, an educational process developed by Ishin Yoshimoto (1916-88) and the thoughts of Masatake Morita (1874-1938). Numerous periodical articles (Cosmopolitan, May 1990, for example) listed in the bibliography have introduced the CL concept to the American lay public. This handbook presents the major tenets of CL-practical advice about active daily living and focusing on universal morally accountable purposeful behavior. CL asks one to accept reality (whatever one's is), know one's purpose (objectives), and do what must be done to reach those objectives. This handbook seems intended mostly for mental health professionals and sophisticated lay readers wishing to learn a natural way to better mental health. Reynolds (Even in Summer the Ice Doesn't Melt, LJ 10/1/86) is a former professor at UCLA School of Public Health, University of California School of Medicine, and the University of Houston. He is considered the leading Western authority on Japanese psychotherapy. Academic libraries supporting graduate psychotherapy courses or large public libraries may want to consider this insightful handbook.
