Summary
In this book, the authors challenge the medical model of the psychotherapist as healer who merely applies the proper nostrum to make the client well. They see the therapist as a coach, collaborator, and teacher who frees up the client's innate tendency to heal. The self-healing tendency of the client usually overrides differences in technique or theoretical approach, which is why research continually finds different approaches to therapy work about equally well. If the client is the driver of change, how can therapists help? Often, by simply providing an empathic workspace that allows the client's capacity for generative thinking to thrive. The authors share tips for dealing with client resistance, passivity, and maladaptive behavior. This book will be of interest to those who care about the nature of therapeutic change.
