Deepening the Treatment, Paperback / softback Book

Deepening the Treatment Paperback / softback


Almost everyone who crosses the therapist's threshold is looking for a second chance-a shot at living a richer, less restricted life.

Understanding how echoes of the past resonate in and shape the present provides opportunities to resolve crippling conflicts and make new choices.

Furthermore, such insight produces a sense of mastery.

But not everyone is aware that the problems s/he brings into weekly therapy are just the first few bars of his or her song.

Jane Hall wrote Deepening the Treatment to help the psycho-dynamically informed therapist help the patient recognize that exploring ideas and feelings is a journey worth taking and that the therapist is a trustworthy guide.

Often, people need to wade before they feel comfortable diving into deep waters.

Hall introduces a responsible if unconventional application of respectful, nondirective therapy, and she supports her vision with clinical examples and thoughtful attention to issues of basic technique-among them separation, termination, self-disclosure, frequency of sessions, tolerating patient rage, and, of course, interpreting the transference.
