Llego a su consultorio pero no lo puedo encontrar, Su consultorio es- td vacto. Entto y miro alrededor. Los suefios de mis pacientes han cambiado. Las telara- fas cubren mi sombrero. Mi consultorio esta oscuro y de- sierto.

Every psychologist can benefit from reading his work regardless of their clinical approach, so did I. I love the way he writes and how this book is structured. There are 85 chapters in total and each chapter consists of no more than a handful pages. He addressed many practical issues that all therapist have encountered and struggled withtherapeutic relationship, boundary, disclosure, transparence, dream, death, and more. He addressed many practical issues that all therapist have encountered and struggled with—therapeutic relationship, boundary, disclosure, transparence, dream, death, and more.
You can easily pick up a few pages here and there and you will be amazed by how many reflections this book would evoke. These thoughts will stay with you for a few days and then you find them resurfacing during therapy sessions. Of course, not all chapters apply and not all psychologists find his approach sensible, this book still has abundant treasures to offer! It is the therapeutic relationship that heals. Let your client matter to you. Process the here and now.
Create a new therapy for each client. Whether as a new therapist or a human being, I always ask myself this question: which is more important, being or doing? I have been trained in CBT, which means two things: 1 therapeutic alliance and collaborative work, and 2 skills training, such as thought record, behavioural experiments, exposures, cognitive reconstructing.
I also find it difficult to balance two urges from inside of me: one is to explore and validate their experiences, and the other is to teach skills and problem-solve.
In a way, there is part of me who wants to be a listener but part of me desires to be a coach. CBT believes, or what I have been trained to believe, all the client needs is the right tools and the capacity and motivation to use such tools to address their symptoms. As a therapist, my job is to sell, teach, and help my clients master a variety of cognitive and behavioural tools.
Therapeutic relationship is important, but only in preparation for such training to take place. I do not fully agree with this approach and sometime I feel that the therapeutic relationship, or love as I would label it, is far more important than skills training.
Training in clinical psychology is not about skills either, it is by thousands of hours of learning and practicing that one thinks like a psychologist, acts like a psychologist, and most importantly, becomes a psychologist. On this point, I am in total agreement with Yalom. What heals in psychotherapy is not the skills training, it is the supportive, transparent, and caring relationship that empower the client to confront and deal with their own difficulties.
To do so, one must have complete faith in the following two: 1 we all need care from others, and 2 we are capable of providing this care. It is not what you do, but who are you. A big block as a clinician was my fear and hesitance to process the here and now, i. I felt that a strict boundary needs to be maintained and I should not let my client access my internal processing.
What a fool I was! Processing the here and now has been proved to be of tremendous help since I started implementing it last week. My client appreciates my efforts in paying attention to what they felt and my curiosity in knowing what they thought. By attending and labeling their emotions, my client made important disclosures, which not only improved rapport but also accelerated treatment. The last point is so true that I do not feel the need to defend it.
Every client deserves a new therapy. By labeling us as a CBT therapist or psychoanalyst, it gives us a sense of security and some control over therapy process. But does it benefit our clients? Whether it is psychoanalysis, interpersonal therapy, CBT, DBT, or existential therapy, they all need to be client centred. We are not the expert to give them a solution that we think will work the best for them.
Instead, it is by working together on building a solution for them and them only that treatment outcomes can be sustainable. How do I love this book!
El don de la terapia
El autor en este libro nos relata las labores que tiene que conocer y manejar el terapeuta. The author in this book tells us about the work you have to understand and manage the therapist. But, what is the main task of the therapist? Throughout the pages and through stories takes us into his world, a human being who cares about the development of another human being through the understanding of emotions, perceptions, realities, dreams, symptoms. The life of a therapist is a life of service in the daily he transcends his personal desires and turns his attention to the needs and growth of the other. Growth in this relationship is not only the patient side, but goes hand in hand therapist growth, through the "here and now" of the immediate events of the session, what is happening in the office. Yalom in this book mentions that it is not theory that should guide therapy, but the relationship.
