Making Psychotherapy Work: Collaborating Effectively With Your Patient By Steven A. Frankel, MD
Dr. Frankel sorts out good therapies from bad. The crucial ingredient he identifies is an uncanny, moving collaborative experience-resulting from heartfelt, even painful moment-to-moment involvement-in which both patient and therapist are transformed.
Barr explores relationships (including parent/child and therapist/client) and contexts that can result in power abuse. In a special section called "Here and Now," the author invites readers to examine their own feelings and thoughts about individuals' stories.
