Psychotherapy Isn't What You Think draws on
James Bugental's half-century of experience in teaching, consulting
with, and supervising psychotherapists in the U.S. and abroad. The book
stands as a substantial and absolutely current contribution to the
literature, offering an essential perspective for any therapist in
Dr. Bugental contends that is is the client's living, in-the-moment experiencing that forms both the underlying and the actual process in psychotherapy. Accordingly, attention to this dimension is a more powerful focus than is the pursuit of information. • What is the client feeling in the room? • How is the client using personal resources to accomplish the goals that brought him or her to therapy? • What obstructs the work? • How does the client use the therapist as a resource?
These questions--too often neglected in traditional therapy--go to the heart of the client's here-and-now experiencing.
For seasoned practitioners as well as advanced students, Psychotherapy Isn't What You Think demonstrates the power and the promise that experiencing-centered therapy brings to the therapeutic engagement. It will re-energize the thinking of practitioners of all orientations.
