How Does Psychotherapy Work?eBook - 2005
It is said that the question "how does psychotherapy work?" cannot be answered conclusively - that we cannot reach into the depths of a deeply private relationship and pluck out a precise truth about what occurs within it. This book defies that notion. Here, the question is both beautifully explored and answered by leading psychotherapists from different schools to create a fascinating volume of ground-breaking ideas and theory.Each contributor unravels the procedures of the work, discussing the qualities of good psychotherapy from their own personal and theoretical perspectives. They explore the reasons why people seek help, how they can be helped and the goals of the therapeutic journey, each of them writing with precision, clarity and passion for the work they do. Despite the wide range of variations in their theory and technique the eleven contributors to this book are united in finding certain common denominators in successful psychotherapy.How Does Psychotherapy Work? presents a thought-provoking, cogent and convincing dialogue on the capacity of psychotherapy to help people who are in emotional pain, and the technicalities of that process.Contributors:Neil Altman; Roz Carroll; Sue Cowan-Jenssen; Nicola Diamond; Carol Holmes; Brett Kahr; Dianne Lefevre; Susie Orbach; James Pollard; Jane Ryan; Joseph Schwartz; and Robert Maxwell Young.
