New York exhibit features local author’s book

— KEYSER, W.Va. — A book by Keyser resident Eugene Chiaverini, “The Healing of a Culture,” has been selected by Xlibris Publishing to be featured at the Book Expo American Book Exhibit in New York City May 25-27.

In his first book, “Life Thoughts,” Chiaverini looked at his life experiences and choices, trying to formulate the lesson he had learned about himself, his spiritual journey and evolution. He expands his horizon and explores a broader perspective with “The Healing of a Culture,” the new work published by Xlibris.

The new book focuses on the cycles of life in the individual, family and nation, and how the stages of development, evolution or decay apply in all systems. The individual, family and cultural have come into existence with dreams, goals and needs, according to a news release from the publisher. The how, when and where those goals and needs get fulfilled affect the development of each and its thinking, functioning and evolution.

“Thought-provoking and filled with a wealth of insight, Chiaverini’s book invites readers to examine how the evolution and deterioration of each system impacts on the others and how as a nation, people can right the course of deterioration,” the release reads.

Chiaverini spent 48 years working in the human service field, providing counseling to both children and adults of all cultures and religions. He began his career in 1963, after graduating from Muskingum College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and education. He went on to earn his master’s degree in social work from Western Reserve University.

From 1967 to 2007, he was employed by a variety of public and private social service agencies as a clinical director and as an administrator. He successfully launched his own agency for developmentally disabled adults, was a consultant in a nursing home, and spent several years working with learning disabled children in special schools.

During these years, he immersed himself in learning about holistic treatment, Eastern healing practices, and the combining of both Eastern and Western practices in modern medicine. In his own clinical practice he integrated sound social work practice with Eastern methodologies, in order to assist his clients in healing the mind, body and spirit.

In addition, Chiaverini served as a field supervisor for graduate studies in social work. In 2006, he served as a delegate to China for the U.S.-China Conference on Social Work. He was listed in Cambridge’s “Who’s Who” registry of executive and professionals. The author operated a private practice until his retirement in 2007.
