Countertransference and the Therapist's Inner Experience explores the inner world of the psychotherapist and its influences on the relationship between psychotherapist and patient. This relationship is a major element determining the success of psychotherapy, in addition to determining how and to what extent psychotherapy works with each individual patient. Authors Charles J. Gelso and Jeffrey A. Hayes present the history and current status of countertransference, offer a theoretically integrative conception, and focus on how psychotherapists can manage countertransference in a way that benefits the therapeutic process. The book contains completely up-to-date data from existing research findings, and illuminates the universality of countertransference across all psychotherapies and psychotherapists. Contents include: *the operation of countertransference across three predominant theory clusters in psychotherapy; *leading factors involved in the management of countertransference; and *valuable recommendations for psychotherapy practitioners and researchers. Professionals in clinical and counseling psychology, psychiatry, social work, and counseling will benefit from this volume. The book is also appropriate for graduate students in these fields.

Der Psychiater Gary Small öffnet seine Türen und zeigt uns eine Welt, in der nichts so ist wie wir es kennen: Menschen, die hysterisch erblinden, eine Schulklasse, die in Ohnmacht fällt, Männer, deren Penis schrumpft - oder Damen, die nackt auf dem Kopf stehen. In seinen 30 Berufsjahren hat Dr. Gary Small alles gesehen. Die Geschichten, die er davon erzählt, machen süchtig. Sie nehmen uns mit auf eine inspirierende Reise zu uns selbst - und am Ende werden wir begreifen, dass uns erst unsere Verschrobenheiten zu dem machen, was wir sind: menschliche Wesen.

For those offering trauma-informed care, it can be difficult to maintain wellbeing and a balanced, positive outlook when the nature of their job requires frequent engagement with traumatic disclosures. Self-help for Trauma Therapists: A Practitioner’s Guide intends to assist human service workers- such as those working as therapists, social workers and counsellors- to maintain their self- care and professional effectiveness when working in fields where stress and trauma play a key factor in their everyday working lives. Adopting a comprehensive, multi-layered approach to self-care based, the book grounds its exploration of practice through researched accounts with experience professionals. Including accounts from clinical psychologists, therapists, counsellors, social workers and the friends and family of people in these professions, this book creates a narrative on stress and trauma from the human service worker perspective. Interwoven with these stories of practice, the author includes reflections on her own experiences in practice over the past 25 years with trauma survivors. With discussions on risk and resilience, compassion fatigue and vicarious traumatisation, readers are introduced to the theories and practical applications of developing a professional model for maintaining wellbeing and self-care in their work. Self-help for Trauma Therapists: A Practitioner’s Guide is the first book of its kind to be written solely for human service workers. It is essential reading for beginning and more advanced practitioners who are involved in working with trauma and recovery and will also be of interest to supporters of those working in the helping professions.

The Real Relationship in Psychotherapy

The concept of the real or personal relationship between client and therapist has existed since the earliest days of psychotherapy. Yet the real relationship---with its twin components of genuineness (the intent to avoid deception, including self-deception) and realism (perceiving or experiencing the other in ways that befit the other)---has often been misunderstood or ignored. Instead, psychotherapy research has focused largely on the concepts of the working alliance and of transference and countertransference. In this engaging book, Charles J. Gelso argues the case for the relevance of the real relationship to successful therapeutic outcomes. He skillfully traces the development of the concept from its roots in early psychoanalytic thought and documents its current utility in numerous modern approaches to therapy, including humanistic, relational and cognitive-behavioral. Gelso examines the real relationship using a wide variety of examples drawn from current research as well as his own extensive clinical experiences. Written in clear, accessible prose, this book will speak to practicing psychotherapists and therapist trainees as well as researchers and theorists of all persuasions. Given the current interest in the role of the therapeutic relationship in successful client outcomes, this book is both thought-provoking and timely.

Developed as the first extensive overview of counseling psychology, this detailed and engaging work has been an invaluable resource for everyone from undergraduate students to veteran practitioners and researchers for over 20 years, even those working in other disciplines. This long-anticipated 3rd edition has been updated to incorporate contemporary research and theoretical approaches, including feminist multicultural counseling. This book has also been reorganized into three distinct sections that provide readers with easy access to specific information. The first section provides a general overview of counseling psychology, including its guiding principles and ethics, such as the counseling psychologist's dual role as a scientist-practitioner and the focus on clients' strengths; the history and foundational research behind the field; and distinctive and shared qualities compared to other psychological disciplines. The second section examines the practice of counseling psychology, discussing such topics as the counselor-client relationship, assessment and testing methods, group and family counseling, and the four dominant therapeutic approaches within the field - psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and feminist multicultural. All of this information culminates in the third section with advice about training, graduate and post-graduate work, and career development, providing clear applications for readers who wish to progress as counseling psychologists.

Cosa dovrei dire

Scritto per aiutare i terapeuti a considerare le domande dei pazienti come un utile strumento per il lavoro clinico, “Cosa dovrei dire?” esplora i quesiti, alcuni espliciti altri taciti, che ciascun professionista prima o poi si sente porre dai propri pazienti. Linda Edelstein e Charles Waehler, autori del libro e terapeuti esperti, mostrano come le risposte alle domande dei pazienti possano plasmare un clima terapeutico che favorisce la scoperta e la crescita personale. Strutturato in capitoli tematici che raccolgono le domande e le risposte per ogni specifico argomento trattato, questo manuale è scritto in tono colloquiale ed è ricco di esempi personali tratti dall’esperienza decennale dei due terapeuti, spaziando dal tema della religione al sesso, dal denaro ai sogni. “Cosa dovrei dire?” propone come gestire domande spesso scomode o imbarazzanti per il terapeuta come ad esempio: • Lei prende appunti? Posso leggerli? (Capitolo 1, Le prime sedute) • Mi scusi, sono in ritardo. Posso avere qualche minuto in più? (Capitolo 9, Confini) • Non credo a questa stronzata della terapia. Lei cosa ne pensa? (Capitolo 3, Il processo terapeutico) • Perché cambiare è così difficile? (Capitolo 4, Aspettative sul cambiamento) • Parteciperà alla discussione della mia tesi di laurea? (Capitolo 20, Fuori dallo studio) • Dove va in vacanza? (Capitolo 10, Domande personali) • Ho dato il suo nominativo a un’amica che vuole intraprendere una terapia. La vedrà? (Capitolo 9, Confini) • Dovrei pregare per i miei problemi? (Capitolo 12, Religione e spiritualità) • Mi trova attraente? (Capitolo 11, Sessualità) Il potere della terapia risiede nella libertà che offre ai pazienti di parlare di qualsiasi argomento. Non deve stupire che i pazienti sorprendano i terapeuti con le proprie esperienze e con le domande che a volte pongono. “Cosa dovrei dire?” ci spiega come queste domande, a prescindere da quanto difficili o disarmanti sembrino, possano rappresentare un valido supporto al processo terapeutico piuttosto che un elemento di rottura della relazione paziente-terapeuta.

This important volume is both a tribute to the most significant figures in psychotherapy research and a valuable summary of the thrust of their individual contributions. It amounts to a concise yet comprehensive encyclopedia of psychotherapy research in a user-friendly format. A wonderful idea, carried through with verve---and love.---Paul L. Wachtel, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, City College of New York and CUNY Graduate Center The participants in this landmark volume are the Oscar winners in the field of psychotherapy. Distinguished psychotherapy clinician-researchers all, the authors write appreciatively of their pioneer-mentors' personal odysseys and compellingly describe the outstanding contributions they made to psychotherapy research and clinical practice. In an age of evidence-based practice, this book's demonstration of how research is relevant to the practice of psychotherapy makes it essential reading for researchers and clinicians alike.---Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Dean, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ This book provides a who's who of psychotherapy research, complete with charming biographies and helpful summaries of the work of the giants of the field. A must-read for whoever wants to know where we are in psychotherapy research and how we got there.---George Stricker, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Argosy University, Washington, DC Therapists are flooded with data supporting cognitive therapy. Yet substantial process research supports the influence of variables like the working alliance, empathy, emotional deepening, mutually agreed-upon goals, and the therapist's personality. Through this collection of carefully constructed biographies of major psychotherapy researchers, therapists now have easy access to data supporting these less publicized keys to psychotherapeutic change. Each therapist is the medium through which clients find their own abilities to change. Let the authors and editors help clarify what you do and sharpen how you do it.---Bernard D. Beitman, MD, author of The Structure of Individual Psychotherapy and coauthor of Learning Psychotherapy and Counseling and Psychotherapy Essentials. Many clinicians today are unaware of the implications of psychotherapy research for their practice. Research that can readily be applied may be difficult to find in original empirical papers, and lessons from the larger body of psychotherapy research are not always accessible. Bringing Psychotherapy Research to Life highlights the work of 28 distinguished psychotherapy researchers, showing how their research programs changed the way we think about and practice psychotherapy. While honoring the founders and influential members of the Society for Psychotherapy Research, the book illustrates how research has extended the following questions: What types of patients benefit from therapy? How can relationship problems best be handled? Under which circumstances can emotions be deepened? How does the therapist foster insight? How does the therapist facilitate behavioral change? This book presents scientifically rich and clinically relevant messages embedded in meaningful stories. By contextualizing the work of luminaries in psychotherapy research, it will appeal to students and practitioners alike, providing both a survey of the field and a resource for fresh research questions. Readers who are primarily associated with a cognitive-behavioral approach will also benefit from an overview of the constructs investigated and empirical methods used by researchers in the humanistic and psychodynamic traditions.
