Overview

Rebels with a Cause, Honoring the Subversive Power of Psychotherapy; Money and the Family; The Godfather Strategy; Marital Therapy when a Symptom is Presented by a Spouse; "Hey did you hear the one about ...?" A smattering of the titles enclosed to whet the appetite of any therapist, whether new to the field or a seasoned professional. Reflecting some 35 years of Madanes' thinking on essential aspects of theory and practice and her innovative approaches to working with those from whom others may back away, this collection will both inform and inspire. From the early years to the most recent pieces, Madanes is clear in her conviction that dramatic change for the better is possible and that therapists can foster such change; that free will and a system that follows its own rules exist simultaneously; and that the human spirit has the capacty to triumph in the face of all kinds of adversity.

The Therapist as Humanist, Social Activist, and Systemic Thinker provides an opportunity to see what such conviction looks like in action across a variety of circumstances. It also teaches us about the power of humor even in the most serious of settings. And just as each piece captures something essential of the author at that particular time in her life, each piece also tells us something of the time itself as reflected in the voice of the author.
