  • Chance Action and Therapy: The Playful Way of Changing

    Nova Science Publishing, New York: 2010

     

    Chance Action and Therapy tells the stories of women, men and couples who applied chance and luck (by means of dice and self-prepared playing cards) to solve persistent difficulties in living. The problems dealt with include, among others, diet, smoking, couple relations and sexuality, shyness and inhibition, sex addictions, posture, panic and anxiety states, obsessions and compulsions. Letting chance and chance-inspired action work for us turns the process of change into a playful beneficial experience with sometimes surprising results.

    Chance Action and Therapy is a synthesis of the author’s clinical experience, Luke Rhinehart's The Dice Man and Nassim Taleb's Fooled by Randomness. The writings of Ecclesiastes, Epictetus and Nietzsche, all great teachers of life have inspired much of this work. This is the first practical application of chaos theory to therapy and self-help.

     

    Praise for Chance Action and Therapy

     

    In this book, Dr. Uri Wernik shows a remarkable openness to attacking a variety of problems in living including diet, smoking and addictions with  tools that most psychologists have never considered, and he has written about his ideas and practice in a  clear and forceful manner. Chance has always been a crucial element in human development and Dr. Wernik has appropriately applied it in a creative way in his work.
