Praise for The Home Therapist The Home Therapist is great title for a very special self-help book. Families, couples, singles, and elderly people could read a page of it at breakfast or before going to sleep and learn about themselves and their most precious relationships. Following the wisdom and the richness of this book written by many hands (90 Australian experts!) and beautifully assembled by Barletta and Bond, the reader can reflect on lifecycle critical events and cope with the adversities of life with more hope and resilience. Counselling is a very useful experience when families or individuals have to face serious psychological problems, but a book like The Home Therapist can help people to prevent them and to believe in their own professional and relational resources.
Prof. Maurizio Andolfi, Psychiatrist and Founder, Accademia di Psicoterapia della Famiglia, Rome

Since throwing myself back into the world of acting, my mental strength is one of my best assets. Sometimes we know what we need to do to fix ourselves, but we are not equipped with the right tools to do so; this book is my roaming toolbox. When dilemmas come across your path, big or small, it's nice to have something to draw on and written in a way we can all take in. Do yourself a favour and keep a copy on hand.
Kelly Atkinson, Actress, Sydney The Home Therapist offers a wonderful collection of practical and useful concepts and suggestions for leading a more healthy and fulfilled life. Clinicians and laypeople will find that this book will serve as a useful tool for everyday living. As I read from the many talented scholars in this book, I was reminded of what I often tell my graduate students in Counseling; you don't have to be sick to get better. The Home Therapist is just the tool to aid so many in taking control of their own lives as they help themselves to a better life.
Prof. Thomas Davis, Counselor Education, Ohio University, Ohio I like the KISS principle, Keep It Simple Stupid, and this book is so easy to read because of the layperson terms, and these days it's so hard to find information when you are in need that is so easy to read and understand. I strongly recommend it, even though I dislike reading.
Joe D'Ercole, Managing Director, Hercules Properties, Brisbane This book is a timely response to an ever increasing need for distilled wisdom that a collective of professionals present. I suspect it's almost a pocket version of a Wikipedia for busy people used to getting all their information in one place. It would be hard to imagine a reader who would not find something of great value in this book.
Jelenko Dragisic, CEO, Volunteering Queensland, Brisbane A go-to guidebook for navigating the most important journey ever: Your life. Highly recommended.
Dr Leah Giarratano, Author and Clinical Psychologist, Sydney A concise, yet thorough, source of information for many of the issues that arise in schools today. As educators, our roles include many incidental counselling situations. This book is an excellent resource to equip us with what we need to know and how to deal with such issues.
Ursula Jamieson, Educator and Administrator, Canberra We face many difficult challenges throughout our lives, the majority of which are covered in The Home Therapist. This book is unique in its comprehensive yet user-friendly design, and I believe it will be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of families, therapists and GPs.
Dr Tania Jardine, General Practitioner, Brisbane The Home Therapist demystifies and educates people about mental health and provides a wealth of practical skills, tips and strategies to understand and manage this often complex area of health. Everyone will find this book informative and useful and it will stimulate conversations at home as well as providing an invaluable resource for challenging times.
Petrea King, Author, Your Life Matters, Sydney This wonderfully practical book offers a wealth of solid information for anyone who is interested in improving quality of life, personally and in relationships. Numerous insightful tips are presented in a clear and concise way, and classified into sections so people can easily select and apply them. Written by recognised experts, Barletta and Bond absolutely found a way to bridge the gap between science and everyday life in this era of information.
Dr Liz Pluut-van Dingstee, Child Psychologist and Family Therapist, Amsterdam Some say that a little bit of information is dangerous, but I say a little bit of information leads to us to question and seek answers. This book, The Home Therapist, is a welcome resource as it empowers everyone of us as it gives us simple and basic knowledge. This knowledge will open us up to new possibilities and understanding.
Fr Chris Riley, CEO and Founder, Youth Off The Streets, Sydney About time! Quality, well-researched professional information, brought together in an easy enlightening approach, across a wide range of common concerns--a triumphant first aid manual that will improve the wellbeing of all who use it.
Santo Russo, Psychologist, Brisbane The Home Therapist is a very useful guide in providing basic information on a wide range of psychological issues. It is easy to read and should provide a very accessible tool for many people who work in the care and health professions. Like the authors, the book is practical, relevant and geared for a diverse audience.
Andrew J See, Barrister at Law, Kilkenny Chambers, Brisbane
