At the core of the book is a fearless insight into real therapy with real case studies. Each case provides unique insights into the murky world of psychological therapy.
“A refreshingly honest appraisal of the dysregulated mental health services that the public and practitioners are faced with. Essential reading for individuals and families to increase their chances of connecting with the right psychology practitioner and avoiding poor practices. Interestingly, the book is a useful text for new and established psychologists in appreciating and assessing their own readiness to provide good therapy.” - Dr Jake Anderson, B.B.Ns, Ph.D, M.Psych (Clinical)
