The Psychotherapist's Own Psychotherapy Summary


The Psychotherapist's Own Psychotherapy: Patient and Clinician Perspectives by Jesse D. Geller (Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology, Yale University School of Medicine and Columbia University Teachers College)

The Psychotherapist's Own Psychotherapy lifts a curtain that has long shrouded the intimate alliances between therapists and those of their patients who share the same profession. In this unique volume, distinguished contributors explore the multi-faceted nature of the psychotherapy of psychotherapists from both sides of the couch. The first-person narratives, clinical wisdom, and research findings gathered together in this book offer guidance about providing effective treatments to therapist patients. Part I presents multiple theoretical positions that justify and guide the work of therapists' therapists. In Part II, eminent therapists write eloquently and intimately about their own experiences as patients. Their personal reflections offer valuable insights about what is healing and educational about psychotherapy. These narratives are followed by several chapters reviewing scientific research on therapists in personal therapy, including the first report of relevant findings from a major international survey of psychotherapists. In Part III, celebrated therapists from different theoretical orientations offer guidance on conducting therapy with fellow therapists. They reflect on the many challenges, dilemmas, and rewards that arise when two people do the same work. Their chapters offer wisdom and warnings about such issues as power dynamics, boundary maintenance, therapist self-disclosure, the termination process, and the post-termination phase of the relationship. These first-hand accounts are enhanced by research overviews on conducting personal treatment, including a new study of American therapists commissioned for the book.

The Psychotherapist's Own Psychotherapy Reviews


Most therapists have, at some time or another, sought out or have provided psychotherapy to one another. Now there is finally an open discussion about it. Recommended! * Doody's Journal *
Geller, Norcross and Orlinsky have compiled a group of theoretically diverse essays that tackle the topic of the therapist's psychotherapy from both the viewpoint of the therapist-patient, as well as the therapist's therapist. Through various insightful and informative essays, readers are offered a great deal of information on the subject, as well as an emphasis on the importance of psychotherapy for the practicing psychotherapist. * USAPB *
