Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Mix a professional marriage for Process with a personal marriage for power. Then spice with clinical research and add a section by Virginia Satir. The result is an excellent short course on co-therapy."--Carl Whitaker, M.D.

"As one who has spent his entire career immersed in the practice of co-therapy, I am delighted to find a cogent and useful book addressed to this uniquely intimate work relationship....This is an insightful and helpful book. It gives us threads of specific wisdom, and a weave that connotes the positiveness of co-therapy as a hopeful and expansive linking up of two individuals for the common good. I only wish Virginia Satir, whose chapter is by itself worth the price of the book, could have gone on and on...."--Augustius Y. Napier in Journal of Family Psychotherapy
