Overview

Each of the authors has an interest and experience in family therapy and each has expressed his or her particular contribution in a more personal style than might be expected. This approach leads to interesting reading and to the stimulation of the reader's own thoughts about the use of self in therapy. It should also be noted that although all of the authors deal with family therapy, they also express their ideas in ways that can be utilized by a wider audience.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text that explores the tricky concept of appropriate personal sharing with clients on the part of the therapist in order to establish a trusting and powerful therapeutic bond. Baldwin (Family Institute at Northwestern U. and Chicago Center for Family health) provides new research, numerous case studies, tables, figures, interviews, and diagnostic criteria that highlight the benefits of this therapy practice and its effectiveness with a variety of clients. Thirteen contributions consider a variety of topics relevant to the relationship between therapist and client, including the use of transference and countertransference, therapists facing their own problems, and the wounded-healer paradigm.
