Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy: A Manual of the Experiential Method (Practicing Professional) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important book addresses specific ways in which therapists can engender the therapeutic process, especially with clients with whom nothing effective is happening. In actual transcripts, the author examines each client statement to show where therapeutic movement has taken place, and each therapist response to show how to did or did not help to bring about direct experiencing, or focusing.

Book News Annotation:

Provides a detailed analysis of the dynamics in the ongoing client-therapist relationship, with close attention to the ways in which therapist can enable a client's capacity for direct experiencing and focusing.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Examining the actual moment-to-moment process of therapy, this volume provides specific ways for therapists to engender effective movement, particularly in those difficult times when nothing seems to be happening. Unprecedented in its attention to detail, the book concentrates on the ongoing client\n-\therapist relationship and ways in which the therapist's responses can stimulate and enable a client's capacity for direct experiencing and "focusing."

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 305-310) and index.
