Instead of Therapy by Tom Rusk April 4 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
For eight years, I had a mediation practice, and I am now a grade four teacher in an international school in Bangkok, Thailand. My guiding principal is to help my clients and my students become independent of me, and help themselves change. My language for this comes from Tom Rusk's "Instead of Therapy." Early in his book, Tom Rusk talks about how he freed himself and his clients from a dependent relationship, and he explains the process with clarity, compassion and humor. He reveals his personal and professional experiences in a refreshing way. Rusk comes across as a solid practioner with no nonsense and at once, with such understanding and caring. I travel with this book and I recommend this book.

A second opinion on the Therapy process Dec 29 2002
By FlyOrDieTryin' - Published on
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book for anyone who has not been helped (or is considering entering therapy) in a meaningful way via traditional psycological therapy methods. The book should be considered mandatory reading for any professional in the fields of psychology and psychiatry who are determined to make the most positive impact possible for those people seeking their assistance. Instead of Therapy is a revolutionary book that will give the reader solid information on how to make real changes in their lives and avoid wasting time, money and energy in non-productive counseling relationships. I believe the book also gives the reader a glimpse into the future of the psychological therapy process.
