Gavilán represents like a contemporary psychologist and writer, the synthesis
of a traditional author of self-help books and articles focused to improve
human relationships, fighting against racism, fostering human values, and
not only respecting the ethnic and cultural differences, but also offering
keys to overcome these related conflicts in daily life.
For more than 30 years, he wrote 14 books some of them best-sellers translated
in foreign languages, including Korean, Russian and Ucranian. One can find
his books in some of the most important catalogues in the world such as Amazon,
Barnes& Noble (USA), as well as of England, France, Spain and all Hispanic
countries. His last one book (All These Dangerous Friendship) is published
in April 2007 by Editorial Planeta, the leading editor in Spanish print. His
books are recommended by Dra. Isabel (Radio Unica, Miami, USA), considered
the most important Spanish psychologist in United States.
As a journalist, Francisco Gavilán has written about 600 articles in prestigious
magazines and newspapers in Spain, Chile, México and Puerto Rico. All these
works have shown a brilliant writing style, but the most important factor
is his humanistic message to help readers solve their communication problems
with others. During 18 years, for example, he collaborated monthly in the
Año Cero review, writing articles under the generic title: Keys for a Harmonius
Life. This magazine has 500.000 issues (80.000 in Spain, and 420.000 in
America). At present time, this author collaborates with the prestigious European
magazine Psychologies (France) in Spain, as leading columnist (opinion).
Likewise, Francisco Gavilán has also given for several years, an original
and successful seminar on non-offensive communication, based on the modern
psychological concept, "Emotional Intelligence". This versatile course is,
in fact, a guide to reach a healthy style of life. The eulogistic comments
of well-known people who did this seminar are his most eloquent testimony.
He also gives periodically public lectures about the human behaviour.
