An individual's biography, or life story, can be explored to great effect by counselors and therapists. Gudrun Burkhard, an experienced anthroposophic doctor, has studied human biography for many years and has counseled numerous individuals. Biographical Work presents the author's unique methodology and insights into successful biographical counseling.

Burkhard describes the steps that practitioners should follow. These are based on seven-year cycles in human life, with particular attention focused on the period of the twenties and early thirties. She includes an analysis of Charlie Chaplin's biography and what that reveals about his life and work.

This is an indispensable guidebook for all who are engaged in any kind of counseling, as well as for anyone wishing to gain a deeper understanding of human psychology and lifespan issues.
