With his whole life before him, 25-year-old national tennis champion and aspiring young surgeon, Arnold Beisser, was struck down by Polio. « In a few hours, without warning, I was transformed from a doctor to a patient, from an athlete to a cripple. Polio had ravaged me so that I could not stand, walk, sit, eat, drink or even breathe by myself. »
Family, friends, colleagues and Arnold himself tell this inspiring journey of loss, acceptance, triumph and love — how he become a pioneer in sports psychology, UCLA Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, leader in the community mental health movement, Gestalt trainer, and best-selling author. Dr. Beisser is known world wide for his seminal paper « Paradoxical Theory of Change. »
