Around one in four clients of counselling and therapy either deteriorate in treatment or show no signs of recovery. Why does therapy fail this significant proportion of vulnerable people and what can be done about it? This ground-breaking volume assembles the first ever collection of client critiques of therapy as a way of kick-starting an urgently needed debate. Including contributions from a range of internationally respected therapists, the book identifies areas of concern and seeks to provide constructive solutions for the future.
Nominated for the Mind Book of the Year Award 2006
