In his new book, “Living Loving Letting Go,” Neal describes the reasons why couples get together, why they stay together and why sometimes it doesn’t work out. He’s particularly interested in how people develop the sense of “We-ness.” Dr. Wiseman thinks that “the feeling of We-ness is an under-rated aspect of relationships: it refers to the feeling that we have been warmly welcomed into our partner’s world just as we have welcomed our partner into our own; that we have developed an emotional intimacy unlike any before; in short, that we belong.”
Neal’s career has included service as a School Psychologist in New Jersey, Massachusetts and Florida. He also established a Clinical practice in Massachusetts and New Hampshire where he specialized in Group and Individual Psychotherapy and Couples Counseling. His approach to therapy is based on the teachings of Fritz Perls, M.D., Ph.D. (Gestalt Therapy), Milton Erickson, M.D., Eric Berne, M.D. (Transactional Analysis) and Ruth Cohen, M.A. (Theme Centered Interaction Method). “Living Loving Letting Go” incorporates many of these teachings. He continues to work with groups and individuals in classes designed to assist couples understand and manage trouble spots in relationships.
