Moving Beyond The Comfort Zone in Psychotherapy

About the Course:

This book takes the reader through a process of coping with difficult moments in treatment. Using her own clinical experience, the author describes examples of sexual or angry feelings and ways to understand countertransference responses that facilitate the therapeutic process. In the final chapter, she also addresses ways that misuse of authority can inhibit the learning process.
