Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

While growing up in California with her mother, a Beverly Hills family practitioner, and her father, a radiologist, Orloff says she had psychic experiences and could foresee deaths, illnesses, earthquakes. Now a psychiatrist and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, she works with police departments by using her psychic abilities to help locate missing persons and identify suspects. In her clinical practice, she claims, her clairvoyant gifts enable her to get information about patients' health, relationships, careers and childhoods, and to discern stumbling blocks that are not readily apparent. A premonition warned her of one patient's upcoming suicide attempt. With another patient afflicted with debilitating rheumatoid arthritis, Orloff says, she successfully used hands-on healing, or therapeutic touch. She encourages analysands to use prayer, meditation, ritual and dream journals to promote emotional healing. She movingly describes the dreams and visions that helped her draw closer to her mother, who succumbed to cancer in 1993. Orloff's unconventional attempt to bridge the worlds of Freud and the paranormal will appeal to open-minded readers. Author tour.

&quot;Dr. Orloff voices the message that intuition works as a potent therapeutic force that can help us lead smarter, saner lives. She is a serene maverick.&quot; --USA Today

Transforming the face of psychiatry, Judith Orloff MD asserts that we are keepers of an innate intuitive intelligence so perceptive that it can tell us how to heal -- and prevent -- illness. Yet intuition and spirituality are the very aspects of our wisdom usually disenfranchised from traditional health care.

Dr. Orloff is a New York Times bestselling author who specializes in treating empaths and sensitive people in her Los Angeles based private practice. Dr. Orloff is on the psychiatric clinical faculty at UCLA. As an empath herself, she synthesizes the pearls of conventional medical wisdom with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, spirituality, and energy medicine. Her work has been featured on The Today Show, CNN, PBS, and in USA Today and The Oprah Magazine. In response to her work, The Los Angeles Times calls Dr. Orloff &quot;a prominent energy-based healer.&quot;

Dr. Orloff's latest book &quot;Thriving as an Empath: 365 Days of Self-Care for Sensitive People&quot; (Sounds True 2019) offers a year's worth of of self-care meditations, reflections, and journaling suggestions as daily inoculations against stress and overwhelm for highly sensitive people along with its companion The Empath’s Empowerment Journal. Her previous book “The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People” (Sounds True, 2017) is an invaluable resource to help sensitive people of all kinds develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world. The book also has a companion audio program called “Essential Tools for Emapths: A Survival Guide for Sensitive People” which has many practical exercises for sensitive people.

Dr Orloff's first book, &quot;Second Sight&quot; chronicles her struggles acknowledging and then finally embracing her gift of intuition. Her second book, &quot;Dr. Judith Orloff's Guide to Intuitive Healing&quot; shows how breakthroughs in healing our body, emotions, and sexuality can be accomplished by listening to intuition. &quot;Positive Energy,&quot; which has been translated into 25 languages, takes a probing look at the American epidemic of exhaustion and how we can reverse it using specific strategies to build energy and combat draining people. Her New York Times Bestseller, &quot;Emotional Freedom&quot; describes how to transform negative emotions into positive ones with specific techniques. Her national bestseller, “The Power of Surrender” describes the power of letting go in everyday life, health, and wellness--an enlivening and sane alternative to pushing, forcing, and over controlling people and situations.
