Book Synopsis
Many people expect psychotherapy to better their lives. Many improve, but some do not.

Psychotherapy is an interaction that seeks to modify troubled ways. The process is one that the therapist and the patient must work through together. The process can produce a return greater than the effort invested.

Here are instructions, insights, and a host of other things to think about when it comes to psychotherapy. Some of the basic concepts are explained, followed by discussions of topics such as the family dance, why therapy takes so long, the role of medications, common reasons why it succeeds or fails, finding the best therapist, and so on.

Psychotherapy cannot be taught; it must be experienced, much like an athlete learns a better way to do their sport -- the lessons change from ideas to reality by well paced practice. The therapist is a coach.

Psychotherapy offers skills and tools that lead to an acceptance, understanding, and change of psychosocial forces to improve a quality of life.

Psychotherapy is both a joy and challenge. This books brings the reader closer to the inside process that will make the experience a real benefit in life. It's serious reading but worth the time.
