Author Judith A. Goren, PhD, invites us into her office and shows us the daily considerations of psychotherapy from her perspective as a humanistic psychologist in private practice. Sharing the Journey focuses on her own experience over many years. Its chapters offer advice and helpful information to the next generation of new practitioners. Written without technical jargon and with honesty and humor, this collection of short essays will be particularly useful for students, interns and new therapists in counseling, social work and psychology. Their teachers, mentors, supervisors and clients will also want to read it.
Some of the topics covered include:
- establishing ground rules with clients
- the business side of private practice
- working with adults abused as children
- principles of effective listening
- self-care for the therapist
Dr. Goren's essays illuminate timeless issues shared by all psychotherapists.
