Summary
"This book focuses on taboos and uncomfortable topics that therapists and therapists-in-training often avoid and the damaging myths underlying this avoidance. Examples of the many topics include anger at patients; prayer with patients as part of therapy; fee disasters; therapists getting sick, growing old, and dying; confusion about disabilities; feelings of incompetence; therapists' fears; sexual orientation and self-disclosure; vulnerability; therapists' shame and guilt; silence about research data that are influential but faked; therapists' blunders; difficult aspects of race and ethnicity; the experience of being fired; confusion about what to do; and betrayal of ourselves, our profession, and our values to succeed or just survive. Providing opportunities for individuals, courses, and workshops to engage the topics directly, the book avoids imposing "right" answers and clinging to traditional "politically correct," or "psychologically correct" approaches. The book's model of learning encourages a mindful awareness of how we respond to the complex, messy situations that occur in real life and emphasizes the need for openness, honesty, courage, and constant questioning"--Cover.
