About the Book

Therapists use words to help guide their clients through difficult times, but where are the words that can guide the healers as they develop professionally, struggle with difficult cases, adapt to changing times? Here, for practitioners and students, is a reference work which contains the best thoughts of the best thinkers in the field of psychotherapy, addressing the breadth and depth of what it means to be a therapist. Schwartz and Flowers have searched through hundreds of books, old and new, as well as thousands of journal articles, to find those words. The book is organized into nine core topic areas, and includes quotations, the authors' own "modest reflections," relevant case histories, anecdotes and references for further reading. Clients can be difficult and psychotherapy practice stressful. Keep this insightful volume within easy reach—for inspiration, for guidance, for sustenance.
