Among PCB’s many talented peers, Dr. Andre Watson has become familiar to us through his inspiring presentation at the 2016 PCB Conference. Andre has also led two peer discussion calls on family dynamics. This summer Andre published a memoir entitled, Vision in the Dark. Here’s a description from Amazon.com.
“Thirty years ago Andre Watson’s life changed drastically. Growing up, he was told to shoot for the stars and that he could be whatever he wanted to be. He was told that he could become a distinguished doctor, an amazing athlete, a profound professor, a fantastic father, a limitless leader, a sensational success. “Just believe it, and then you will see it,” his encouragers cheered. “You can be whatever you want to be.”
But what happens when you literally can’t see it? At the age of nine years old, Andre was diagnosed as legally blind. After over a dozen surgeries to save his eyesight, his family and he had to face the inevitable. Andre was going blind. But the story does not stop there. Actually, that is precisely where this interesting and inspiring saga begins.
Vision in the Dark is Dr. Andre Watson’s story of becoming a blind visionary. He is blind, yet he decided to use his life to develop new ways of seeing himself, others, and the world. Andre braved and overcame countless odds. Today he is a licensed clinical psychologist, a world traveler, an award-winning athlete, and a beloved husband, father, and friend. He offers a challenging and awe-inspiring glimpse of life through the eyes of a blind man. With refreshing clarity, unmistakable charm, and humor that will make you laugh out loud, Vision in the Dark redefines for us all what it really means to be able to see.”
