Defining Moments For Therapists
by Somerstein Prengel
If therapy is a relational process, it takes a person on the therapist’s end. The goal of this book is to capture the therapist’s evolving sense of self as it is shaped by our experiences as active participants in a creative interaction. The essays in this book are first-person accounts, by eleven therapists, of some “Aha!” moments when they got to understand themselves better.
