What People are Saying About This

Kenneth I. Pargament

To get to the heart and soul of a process as rich and complex as psychotherapy takes tremendous experience and expertise. Plain Old Therapy is the product of a very wise scholar and a very sensitive practitioner who succeeds in bridging the deepest of psychological perspectives with cutting-edge research in a remarkably accessible manner. The pages in this marvelous book are filled with timeless truths. In this sense, there is nothing really plain nor old about Plain Old Therapy. It should be read by every therapist, from the beginning student to the most seasoned practitioner.
