Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A passionate, proactive stance on the present state of psychotherapy, The Vulnerable Therapist: Practicing Psychotherapy in an Age of Anxiety picks the brains of contemporary mental health professionals and finds a common symptom--fear. You?ll see why litigation, market forces, and ethical confusion have raised a dark umbrella of angst over psychotherapy practices and discover what therapists can do to restore the profession to its former good self.The Vulnerable Therapist will capture your interest with its broad systemic approach, contextual analysis, fascinating case studies, and anecdotal material. You?ll see the need for improvement at the institutional and individual levels of the psychotherapy professions. Specifically, you?ll read about: social, cultural, and contextual aspects of the crisis of meaningin psychotherapyprofessional responses to the crisis of meaning which create ethicaldilemmas for individual practitionersthe power of language to construct and control mental health beliefspsychotherapy's core constructs and ethical buzzwordspsychological and legal risks in practicing psychotherapy todayspecific problems with licensing boards and other complaint channelsproblems with rule-based ethicsalternative models for creating ethical therapist-client relationshipsToday, more and more, excessive litigation and market-driven forces are imposing standard ethics decisions on psychotherapists, forcing them to see their clients through the clouded lenses of risk management and liability instead of through the lens of therapeutic need. Much like the symptomatic children whose dysfunctional family stops blaming them and starts shouldering part of the problem, distraught therapists need the psychotherapy profession to address its own psychopathology at the institutional level. The Vulnerable Therapist shows how you can contribute to a total revamping of the mental health professions in a way that facilitates rather than impedes ethical functioning.

Synopsis:
