The Art of Therapy by Louis Everstine

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


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.
