The Story of a Gifted Young Obstetrician's Error and the Psychologist Who Helped Her
“Voices are a soul’s signature,” says psychologist Dan Shapiro, who in his daily practice hears plenty of them. For all his expertise, he admits he’s still terrified that “someone will keep something from me, and when they tell me the truth, I’ll be useless.”
10…9…8… Hotshot NSA code breaker Kim Valenti had cracked a code revealing a terrorist plot to take over a major TV network…a takeover that Kim learned too late was only a diversion for a far more dangerous threat. 7…6…5… She had just minutes to thwart the real plot–a bomb at a major airport. Kidnapping a member of the FBI bomb squad to help her…
Treating other physicians has become one of Shapiro’s specialties. When the obstetrician Amelia Sorvino seeks his help—distraught that her own medical error could have injured a patient’s baby— Shapiro finds his talents as counselor and healer pushed to their limits. Session by session, he works to discover the sources of Amelia’s anguish – for his own sake as much as hers: he’s familiar with the burden of a doctor’s guilt, and he has seen how loss and trauma, if unchecked, can echo from generation to generation in a family. In this probing, intensely personal memoir, the words “Physician, heal thyself” assume a fresh and moving urgency.
