An insightful look at psychotherapy's shadow sideApril 18 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
This diverse collection of essay explores, from client viewpoints, the subtle and not-so subtle ways psychotherapy turned harmful. I thought this book one of the best in the small number of writings on this subject.
Though written for professionals, the book was accessible for a lay person and provided clear accounts how psychotherapy treatment became damaging. As the editor says as she dedicates her forward to clients, "You are not alone."
I'd recommend this book for a client questioning treatment or a practitioner open to learning from patients how they were harmed.
