Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungCandid, compassionate, and groundbreaking, The Heart of Psychotherapy opened the door to the therapeutic office more than a decade ago, offering a generation of readers an unparalleled evaluation of what does - and what should - go on in therapy. This edition, published with a new expanded foreword written by the author, reaffirms Dr. George Weinberg's understanding of therapy as an intimate relationship between two people - the patient who has reached out for help and the therapist who wants to give it - and discusses particular issues that have emerged in the 1990s. In this new edition, Dr. Weinberg advises the healthy male on how to express his feelings openly; challenges therapists to refrain from imposing their prior beliefs on patients; and discusses the needed feminist influence in psychotherapy. Wise and sensitive, powerful and courageous, The Heart of Psychotherapy is an unusual, penetrating book that has long been regarded as the leading work in its field.
PortraitDr. George Weinberg is the author of numerous books and articles, including "The Taboo Scarf "and the best-selling "Self-Creation." A nationally renowned psychotherapist, Dr. Weinberg lives in New York City, where his practice includes training other therapists as well as seeing private patients.
