Lessons from the personal experience and reflections of a therapist.The difficulty and cost of training psychotherapists properly is well known. It is far easier to provide a series of classes while ignoring the more challenging personal components of training. Despite the fact that the therapist's self-insight, emotional maturity, and calm centeredness are critical for successful psychotherapy, rote knowledge and technical skills are the focus of most training programs. As a result, the therapist's personal growth is either marginalized or ignored. The Making of a Therapist counters this trend by offering graduate students and beginning therapists a personal account of this important inner journey.

“This is clearly a book written by an expert therapist... [F]ull of practical advice, common-sense wisdom and self-disclosure... His advice to and support for beginning therapists is not only compassionate but also inspiring... [E]xtremely readable and the cases so interesting that it could be read also by non-specialists, by anybody who is interested in human nature and human relationships. Highly recommended for psychologists as well as for educators.”
“The clear writing style makes it easy to read and sensitively approaches a variety of subject areas. . . . A must buy for those in training and also for lecturers.”
