From the Publisher“This volume highlights the considerable insights that emerge as a result of using conversation analysis to better understand psychotherapeutic interaction. Through an examination of the practices and procedures within the 'talking cure,' the contributors help initiate a dialogue between students of interaction and psychotherapy researchers. Their findings indicate that conversation analysis can highlight key aspects of the psychotherapeutic process which have hitherto remained somewhat opaque.”

"This is an outstanding edited collection. In a modest volume it brings together cutting edge conversation analytic studies of psychotherapist–client interaction. It presents the best available single source of current knowledge on psychotherapeutic talk. Notable aspects of the book include the rigorous empirical work and the breadth of psychoanalytic theory and practice covered. Another impressive thing is the original and ethnomethodologically inspired ways an applied thread is incorporated into some of the studies without compromising the “pure” nature of the analytic work..."
