Candid, compassionate, and groundbreaking. The Heart of Pscyhotherapy opened the door to the therapeutic office more than a decade ago, offering a generation of readers an unparalleled evaluation of what does-and what should-go on in therapy. This edition, published with a new expanded foreward written by the author, reaffirms Dr. George Weinberg's understanding of therapy as an intimate relationship between two people-the patient who has reached out for help and the therapist who wants to give it-and discusses particular issues that have emerged in the 1990s. In this new edition, Dr. Weinberg:
-Advises the healthy male on how to express his feelings openly
-Challenges therapists to refrain from imposing their prior beliefs on patients
-Discusses the needed feminist influence in psychotherapy
Wise and sensitive, powerful and courageous, The Heart of Psychotherapy is an unusual, penetrating book that has long been regarded as the leading work in its field.
