THE ART OF THERAPY
Offers a practical approach to the therapist’s task, from the perspective of a 35-year veteran of private practice. This book debunks some of the most
traditional rituals and hidebound conventions of the consulting-room, for example the myth of confidentiality, the master-slave relationship of therapist
to client, and the tendency of therapy to continue until the client runs out of money to pay for it. New techniques and intervention strategies are
presented, drawn from the Mental Research Institute’s international view of problem causation and solution-oriented methods of change.
Psychotherapy is an art. Good therapy is good art. Great therapy is everlasting art, like the Mona Lisa.
