- Publish Date: 1996-12-01
- Binding: Hardcover
Therapists are always willing to write and talk about cases, but somewhat reluctant to expose themselves and their experiences. In this book, however, sixty psychotherapists of various backgrounds, disciplines, and levels of experience talk openly about themselves and their work. Divided into four main areas - Practice, Theory, Personal Experiences, and the State of the Field - the book covers such subjects as fees, schedules, cancellations, medication, termination, the effects of managed care, supervision, attitudes toward patients, and questions about unethical colleagues, to name a few. Every therapist is curious about what other professionals do, feel, and believe. Patients also want to know what their therapists think and feel when working with them, and what it's like to be a psychotherapist. Both kinds of readers will find answers here.
