New Book by Isabel Caro Gabalda – “El Uso del Leguaje en Psicoterpia Cognitiva”

el-uso-del-lenguaje-en-psicoterapia-cognitivaProfessor Isabel Caro Gabalda of the University of Valencia in Spain has published El Uso del Leguaje en Psicoterpia Cognitiva (2014), a volume on cognitive psychology that is based on general semantics.

Professor Caro Gabalda dedicates the book to her former colleagues at the International Society for General Semantics and the Institute of General Semantics, specifically Sanford I. Berman, Mary Morain, Patricia G. Maynard, Robert U. Redpath, William Exton, Jr., and Charlotte Schuchardt-Read.

In the copy she sent to IGS, Professor Caro Gabalda penned on the flyleaf “To all my colleagues at the Institute of General Semantics for the support of my interest in general semantics.” She has clearly turned that interest into an important book containing practical uses for GS.
