About Judith Barr

Judith Barr has been a depth psychotherapist in private practice for over 30 years. Her unique and innovative work helps people make a connection between our own individual relationships and experiences, and the state of our nation and our world. Judith has helped many see how their relationship with such things as money, power, fear, elections, grief, healthcare, themselves and others has had a communal impact greater than they ever imagined. She offers her healing expertise in an array of formats: working with individuals, groups, workshops, consultations for the public, and training and supervision for healing professionals. Through her book Power Abused, Power Healed, her dozens of articles for both professionals and the general public, her blog PoliPsych and her blog on Huffington Post, and her speaking engagements, media appearances and teleconferences, Judith teaches about how we can help heal the misuse and abuse of power in all arenas of life – from the inside out – and how we can help to create sustainable safety in our world.
