An individual's biography, or life story, can be explored to great effect by counselors and therapists. Gudrun Burkhard, an experienced anthroposophic doctor, has studied human biography for many years and has counseled numerous individuals. Biographical Work presents the author's unique methodology and insights into successful biographical counseling.

Burkhard describes the steps that practitioners should follow. These are based on seven-year cycles in human life, with particular attention focused on the period of the twenties and early thirties. She includes an analysis of Charlie Chaplin's biography and what that reveals about his life and work.

This is an indispensable guidebook for all who are engaged in any kind of counseling, as well as for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of human psychology and lifespan issues.

Gudrun Burkhard is doctor, therapist, and author. She was born in Brazil, where she lives and works. She cofounded the Tobias Clinic and Artemesia in São Paolo, which offers courses in biography work.

Review:

'While it is accessible to those new to this area ... the entire book might be seen as an inspirational resource for all who have an interest in biography work ... The book is for multiple reading and iterated study, as if dipping into a well and drawing lively inspiration out of Steiner's texts, facilitated by someone fully conversant with their meaning and application ... It brims with resources and depth of insight, and glows throughout with an inspiration that makes it well worth the effort of reading and leads the reader to a significant reappreciation of the value of, and possibilities within, human encounter.' -- Midge Whitelegg, New View, Summer 2007
