In the profoundly intimate exchange of therapy, patients allow a therapist to enter the most personal and private reaches of their lives. As patients expose the most touchy details of their innermost being, so therapists' sensitivities are evoked. This reciprocity is essential to intimacy.
By exploring what draws analyst and patient alike into each other, this book challenges the puritanically restrictive notions of therapy that hide behind scientistic, legalistic, and religious moralisms. Yet, this book meets the ethical dilemmas that therapy raises.
