"Every therapist should read this book. It cannot help but open up rich areas of thought and reflection which will enhance the therapist’s own personal and professional development as well as providing some extremely useful ideas for direct work with clients. The author’s own clinical experience, theoretical understanding and love of literature shine through. The result is an exciting blend, a stimulating and joyful read and a book I wholeheartedly recommend to therapists at all levels of experience."
Literature and Therapy: A Systemic Viewby Liz Burns
Literature and Therapy: A Systemic View is an invitation to the world of literature, drawing us into the creative and imaginative spaces which lie between readers and their choice of novels, plays and poems. In this world, the fundamental importance of emotion and intuition is recognized, as is the power of literature to promote transformations of meaning in everyday life and in therapeutic practice. Liz Burns demonstrates how a systemic view, highlighting relationships, calls the reader to explore both therapy and literature with fresh eyes, newly motivated thoughts and a lightening heart.
