Robert Langs, M.D.

Robert Langs, M.D. is a revolutionary psychoanalyst who is the author of 47 hands-on books on emotional life, the human condition, dreams, and the evolved design and operations of the emotion-processing mind. His books are written for both the general public and mental health professionals. They are distinguished by his highly original approach to the human mind and by the recognition of its extremely influential unconscious activities. Where present-day analysts stress the role of the satisfaction of inner needs and wishes in emotional life, Langs provides strong evidence that trauma and the threat of harm and death are the unconscious driving forces behind our most critical decisions and choices. In a clear and convincing manner his books show how death anxiety, which exists in three major forms, unconsciously motivates our most creative and most devastating actions and decisions.
Langs is an original voice that speaks plainly and practically of generally ignored issues that we are compelled to deal with on a daily basis. With great wisdom, he shows his readers how to deal effectively with the everyday and special challenges which has so much to say about the course of their lives.
If you are tired of, and disappointed with, cliched books about the human mind and emotional life, Langs offers a refreshing set of relevant, unique ideas and recommendations that marks a path to a better understand yourself and others--and to the vast rewards this kind of wisdom can bring.
