What causes human beings to make a significant change in their lives, a transformative shift in thinking and actions? This fundamental question has preoccupied philosophers, priests, politicians, authors, and scholars for centuries. Today, psychologists and therapists who sit with clients session after session have a unique window into the human psyche, watching the rhythms of change unfold in front of them every day, and yet the process remains a mystery. Research has shown that even in cases of unqualified success, the client and the therapist often have wildly different views on what made it work. Taking that as his starting point, Jeffrey Kottler leads the reader on an exploration of human behavior, seeking to find out what it is that really makes a difference that can lead to transformative and lasting change.

Although statistically common, and legal since 1973, abortion still bears significant stigma—a proverbial scarlet A. Fear of this stigma leads most of the women and men who are part of the 21% of American pregnancies that end in abortion to remain silent. This book brings the story of ordinary abortion out of the shadows and invites a new conversation about its actual practice, ethics, politics, and law. Katie Watson lends her incisive legal and medical ethics expertise to navigate wisely and respectfully one of the most divisive topics of contemporary life.
