The guide presented here will help us gain a level of understanding about our own discomfiting emotions and the incomprehensible behavior of others to a remarkable degree. This work takes a bio-psycho-social perspective in combination with human development to devise a targeted therapy that is distinct from available practices today. DSA begins by calling attention to chronic baseline emotions originating in adversity. The author explains how to use the Developmental and Systems Approach (DSA) for the treatment of anxiety, depression, addictions, eating disorders, self-mutilation, and externalizing behavior. For the discerning reader, learning through DSA will fuel authentic interpersonal growth and can be lateralized to many areas of human endeavors.

Whether it is chronic low mood, absence of belonging, treatment resistant addiction, disenchantment with work and school, or recurring relationship challenges, we require a more compelling solution to these issues. Furthermore, this is a parenting book for healthy child development. This is also a manual for any enterprise that requires high performance. This is a unique conception for the national security agencies and law enforcement to analyze the criminal mindset and terrorist impetus. It is time to empower the individual, the family, and our social world with the knowledge to establish authentic affiliations in the context of Interpersonal Connectivity 3.0; otherwise, we are Essentially Alone.

About the Author

Following completion of training from the University of Nebraska and Creighton University in adult psychiatry and the University of Washington in child and adolescent psychiatry, Dr. Charles Wang entered outpatient private practice and psychiatric hospital work in 1994. Dr. Wang is especially interested in the integration of relationship work into the psychotherapies of individuals suffering from mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders, and substance use disorders. Subsequent to his first book in 2009, Profound States of Despair: A Developmental and Systems Approach to treating emptiness, he wanted to transform the insight gained through DSA into better understanding the world around us. In this book he showcases the sagacity and intuition of his patients striving towards recovery.
