This book addresses the underlying philosophy and rationale for the training of psychotherapists. How can training prepare prospective psychotherapists and counsellors for a task whose practitioners cannot even agree as to whether it is a science or an art, an impersonal clinical interaction or a profoundly humane, even spiritual, encounter? The authors argue for an understanding of psychotherapy training as a process which closely parallels that of therapy itself.
