Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the first part of his book, Langs lucidly outlines the functions of the conscious and subconcious mind and describes briefly the ground rules of psychotherapy. He then presents a sound method for evaluating the therapist's approach to crucial stages of the process: the referral, first contact, setting, first interaction, fee, and temporal aspects of therapy, plus issues of privacy, confidentiality, and termination of therapy. Most readers will find the discussion, amply illustrated by case histories, easy to follow. The evaluation process is largely rational, but also makes use of the patient's intuitive skills. For anyone considering psychoanalytic therapy, and for those currently in therapy, this book is an important, useful adjunct.-- Julie Semkow, Health Science Ctr., SUNY at Brooklyn
