ORDER THE BOOK
The Good Enough Therapist is a guidebook - not an instruction manual - written for beginning, intermediate and experienced clinicians. It encourages readers to explore, accept, and embrace their flaws and failings in a way that promotes effective treatment as well as personal growth. It focuses both on craft and process - craft related to the tools, the strategies, and the tactics of treatment, process related to the session-by-session struggle to implement these tools in ways that speak to and illuminate the experiencing of living and struggling as a human being. It does not endeavor to transmit a method, but a sensibility, a way of being with patients that results in a deeper recognition of the therapist's, and the patient's, vulnerability, resilience, imagination and integrity.
