Editorial Reviews

Review

"I got completely caught up in David Treadway's vivid and compassionate ways of capturing the human spirit in, about, and, sometimes, despite therapy. Treadway's wonderful stories will do more to stimulate great discussions about our shared professional calling than any treatment manual ever could."--Alan S. Gurman, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin Medical School

"This is a wonderful book. It is a set of simple stories and questions that invite readers to reflect on these stories, and on themselves. It is a compelling journey into the dilemmas and complexities of being both a therapist and a client. Taking readers by the hand, the book leads them into the ambiguities and struggles of people caught up in the dance called psychotherapy. Eminently readable, and full of wisdom and compassion, these stories offer perspectives on the challenges of being a therapist that will be invaluable to beginning therapists and graduate students, as well as to seasoned clinicians."--Susan M Johnson, EdD, School of Psychology, University of Ottawa, Canada, and Ottawa Couple and Family Institute

"If you've had your fill of professional texts that read like a driver's manual, then this book is for you. The everyday drama, joys, and complexities of people's lives are illuminated in Treadway's stories of clients and therapists. Like the unfolding texts of our own lives, many of these stories let us see the characters over extended periods of time, offering a kind of historical sampling that deepens and enriches the experience of the reader. But what really shines is the space 'in between' the stories, the context Treadway provides for the pain of our connections to huddle alongside the solace of our shared humanity. This is a book that doesn’t flinch. Enjoy!"--Jay Lappin, MSW, LCSW, Director of Family Therapy, CENTRA, Marlton, New Jersey


"Underscored clearly in Intimacy, Change and Other Therapeutic Mysteries is the importance of therapist self-care, of having personal therapy, and seeking ongoing consultation/supervision with valued peers."--The Family Psychologist

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book and introduces Marriage & Family Therapy in an interesting way that kept me interesting. It didn't read like a textbook, so I was able to get a perspective on the therapy experience plus what it's like to be a therapist. I would recommend this book.
