Dawn of Memories: The Meaning of Early Recollections in Life

In the introductory chapter to Dawn of Memories: The Meaning of Early Recollections in Life, Dr. Clark writes: “I attempt to draw together the vast knowledge about early childhood and integrate the findings in a framework that provides an avenue for understanding personal capacities and potentialities.” (p. 12)

Samuel T. Gladding (Ph.D., chair and professor, Department of Counseling, Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina) writes:

Dawn of Memories is a well written, insightful, and engaging book that focuses on the importance of early recollections in our lives and their continued power to influence us throughout the lifespan. Clark captures our attention and holds it throughout this text through the use of fascinating illustrations and case histories while simultaneously helping us understand the potential of memories to foster awareness, understanding, and growth.

Another reviewer states that the book is, “A fascinating read. … clear and accessible to everyday readers hoping to make more sense of their earliest memories.” (Richard E. Watts, Ph.D., president of North American Society for Adlerian Psychology, distinguished professor of Counseling at Sam Houston State University).

Please join us to hear Dr. Clark speak about his latest book on childhood memories and to congratulate him on this accomplishment.

These events are planned by the Faculty Development Committee and the Office of Academic Affairs and supported by funding from the Center for Teaching and Learning and from Corporate and Foundations Relations.
