Synopsis

The Therapeutic Use of Self is a ground-breaking examination of the individual therapist's contribution to process and outcome in counselling.
Using many powerful case examples and extensive research findings from the author's own work, this book presents the counsellor's evaluation of their own practice as the main vehicle for the development of insight and awareness in to individual 'therapeutic' characteristics. It addresses many of the taboos and infrequently discussed aspects of therapy, such as:
* the value of therapist failure
* breaking the rules of counselling
* working beyond the accepted boundaries of counselling.
The Therapeutic Use of Self, will act as a spur to individual counsellors to acknowledge, develop and value their own unique contribution to the counselling profession.
