A complete measure of good and bad therapy. You won't be able to stop reading this book once you've started. Rogers is an excellent writer and therapist and takes us into the world of therapy and into her mind as she experiences her own psychotic breakdown. We learn the power of therapy as a healing tool when in the hands of a caring professional and also what happens when a therapist abuses her power and causes severe psychological damage. Along with this there is also Rogers' own wonderful and detailed account of her treatment of a five year old patient named Ben whose short life has been filled with traumatic experiences that tear at your heart. Annie and Ben are simply amazing together.
