Review quote

This masterful collection of essays is rich with practical insights for psychotherapists, coaches, and really anyone who helps others change for the better. Far-reaching, lucid, full of heart, and highly recommended.--Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom This is an excellent book not only for therapists, but also for those who study the philosophy of mind, for those looking at policy in societal change, insurance companies, and those who teach and practice body work such as yoga, tai chi, qigong, dance therapy, and more. . . . [I]t has been refreshing to read the different ways that extremely competent therapists work and in a variety of ways. . . . This book supports the importance of paying attention to the therapeutic relationship, to what clients want, and their own theory of how change occurs for them (and your ability to work with that). This book is well worth your time. I continue to refer to it. Each of the chapters--or better yet, each of the authors--in this book is authentic in the way that Bromberg uses in his chapter. Each therapist, and each is a master at doing therapy, expresses their individual struggle with the question of how change in therapy happens, and how to make meaning out of a change process that can only be apprehended through experience and eludes colonization by words. And yet something special goes on as you read the words. It will be a realization of authenticity between you and the writer, an expanding dyadic experience that is emergent and surpasses the limitations of language and symbols. It is a dyadic state bringing you a new clarity of expanding understanding of what you always knew but didn't know you knew.--Ed Tronick, PhD, Distinguished University Professor of Psychology, University of Massachusetts, Boston, Director, Child Development Unit Thoughtful and engaging. . . . [H]elpful in exposing readers to variations of psychodynamic practice. . . [Q]uite appropriate for trainees seeking to better understand how their time with patients can be transformative for patients and therapist alike. . . . [M]ay be particularly helpful for clinicians feeling burned-out and needing to recenter themselves in the meaningfulness of their work.
