The Art of Psychotherapy, 2nd ed.

Tapping into his 30 years of teaching and practicing individual psychotherapy and writing in a style free of jargon and mystique, the author presents his case that successful psychotherapy depends on developing an intensely personal patient-therapist relationship. He contends it is essential that the psychotherapist possess a capacity for empathy with a wide range of personality types and that he be more concerned about understanding patients as whole individuals than diagnosing precise kinds of neurosis.

For the author, psychotherapy today is not just a means of curing neurotic symptoms but of helping people suffering from "problems of living.

This is a book for everyone who wants to understand what actually takes place between the psychotherapist and his/her patient.
