    Our Price: £21.59 (with free UK delivery)

    You Save: £5.40 (20%)

    This important book looks at the place of love in therapy and whether it is the curative factor. The authors continually stress, however, that within psychotherapy both ethical and professional boundaries should govern this ‘Love’ at all times in order for it to be experienced as healing and therapeutic. This book offers explorations of the complexity of love from different modalities: psychoanalytic, humanistic, person-centred, psychosexual, family and systemic, transpersonal, existential, and transcultural. The discussions challenge therapists and other allied professionals to think about their practice, ethics, and boundaries.

    This text offers insight into how being listened to, respected, responded to, and encouraged appropriately can enable even the most grotesque stories to take shape, be pulled apart and re-enacted into more healing ones. An engaging read. It demonstrates the deep value of reflexivity and reflection upon one’s own practice and its relationship to personal life, the role of story and narrative both in understanding ourselves and our patients, and the effectiveness of paying attention to the full range of our own and our patients being – physical, social, spiritual, and emotional. This is a complex business and must be accepted as such.’
