About the Author

Michele Baldwin, MSSW, PhD, is a faculty member of the Family Institute at Northwestern University and a faculty member of the Chicago Center for Family Health. She also conducts a limited practice of marriage and family therapy.


"Already a perennial classic in the field, Michele Baldwin re-weaves and updates a richly diverse and substantial discussion of the essential dynamic at the heart of ALL effective therapy: the self and personhood of the therapist. While still rooted in the solid philosophical ground of her previous editions, Baldwin assembles a cast of both new and familiar author voices that make this spirited reading and by turns deeply stirring and contemplative, funny and provocative, personally affecting, and academically rigorous. It is book that clarifies, informs, and ultimately inspires." - Timothy F. Dwyer, PhD, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; Associate Professor of Counseling, Loyola University, New Orleans

"With the clinical field focused on evidence-based practice and intervention techniques, this new edition could not be more timely. In this valuable collection, Michele Baldwin and her colleagues remind us that the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of the process of change. Flowing out of the wellspring of innovations by Virginia Satir and other family therapy pioneers, the volume explores how the person of the therapist powerfully influences all transactions and how we can best use ourselves, in collaborative efforts with our clients, to foster their personal and relational wellbeing and positive growth." - Froma Walsh, PhD, Co-Director, Chicago Center for Family Health; Mose & Sylvia Firestone Professor Emerita, The University of Chicago; Author, Strengthening Family Resilience, 2e

"Therapy is about change and, as good therapists, we cannot help but be changed ourselves. Contained in this work are the essentials of wisdom from masters in the field that help us utilize those changes that lead to our wholesome growth and great therapeutic work." - Terry D. Hargrave, PhD, Professor of Marriage and Family Therapy, Fuller Theological Seminary, California

"The Use of Self in Therapy is a marvelous exploration of a much too often ignored aspect of treatment, the role of the therapist as a person in psychotherapy. Lost in the plethora of evidence-based methods today is that psychotherapy is very much about a shared experience between client and therapist; an experience in which who the therapist is and what is shared matters as much as the methods employed. Baldwin and colleagues have written the book for learning about this essential territory. They fully illuminate a wide range of aspects of this topic and multiple perspectives about it, ranging from the seminal ideas of iconic therapists such as Carl Rogers and Virginia Satir, to the latest considerations, such as its application in cyber-therapy." - Jay Lebow, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Professor, Family Institute at Northwestern, Illinois
