A guidebook to understanding and getting the most out of therapy. This book is intended for clients who want to know how to get the most out of a therapeutic relationship. Tamara Kaiser explains what therapy is (and isn’t), how therapy works (what makes change happen), and elaborates on therapist-client dynamics, including such issues as power, boundaries, trust, and termination.
