Bad Therapy

Rating
Do therapists always have the answers? Perhaps not. "Bad Therapy" offers a rare glimpse into the hearts and minds of the profession's most famous authors, thinkers, and leaders when things aren't going so well.
Instead of simply showing the rather effortless and constant success of renowned practitioners- an impression that can be left by typical books, videos and workshops- "Bad Therapy" reveals, with shocking honesty, their worst mistakes.
Jeffrey Kottler and Jon Carlson, who include their own therapy mishaps, interview twenty of the world's most famous practitioners who discuss their mistakes, misjudgments, and miscalculations on working with clients. Told through narratives, the failures are related with candor to expose the human side of leading therapists. Each therapist shares their regrets, what they learned from the experience, what others can learn from their mistakes and the benefits of speaking openly about bad therapy.
