The Patient Who Cured His Therapist: And Other Stories of Unconventional Therapy
by Stanley Siegel

Book Description:
Perfectly sane people sometimes adopt odd strategies to cope with life’s vicissitudes, but traditional therapy often misidentifies these strategies as pathologies that need to be cured. Therapist Stanley Siegel sees things differently, and he takes us behind the office door as he challenges conventional therapeutic thinking with his unorthodox approach: Instead of pigeonholing his clients’ problems by pathology and trying to “fix” them, he encourages them to appreciate their own adaptive ingenuity. In the process, something remarkable almost always happens-as in the case of the couple who solved their conflict only after literally building a wall within their home, or in the title story, in which Siegel instigates a reversal of roles for a stubbornly uncommunicative client who then unexpectedly solves his therapist’s problem.

Talk is Not Enough: How Psychotherapy Really Works
by Willard Gaylin

Book Description:
Is psychotherapy really worth the time and money millions of Americans put into it? Is a therapist any better at helping us deal with our problems than a good friend, bartender, spiritual counselor, or family member? What makes therapy special? How does it work when it works, and why does it sometimes fail? In Talk Is Not Enough Willard Gaylin, M.D.,one of the nation’s most honored psychiatrists, unlocks the mysteries of the so-called talking cure, which, despite its present-day popularity, is widely misunderstood and highly controversial. In an enlightening tour of the therapeutic process, Dr. Gaylin speaks plainly but profoundly about the art of therapy, what the roles of the patient and therapist should be, and what it takes on the part of each for the patient to get better.

In Session: The Bond Between Women and Their Therapists
by Deborah A. Lott

Book Description:
In Session enters the consulting room and cuts straight to the heart of the psychotherapy relationship. Deborah Lott sought out the stories of nearly 300 women in therapy to provide this unprecedented perspective on the psychotherapy bond. What they told her dramatically reveals the dilemmas of being in a relationship that is at once so intimate, yet so formally constrained. This first book to help women navigate the therapeutic alliance, In Session offers guidance to those who panic at becoming attached to somebody whose time they must buy. It gives a voice to those who have sexual dreams about their therapist but are too uncomfortable to talk about them.

Transforming Trauma: EMDR: The Revolutionary New Therapy for Freeing the Mind, Clearing the Body, and Opening the Heart
by Laurel, Phd Parnell

Book Description:
The revolutionary new therapy to help heal trauma and relieve eating disorders, anxiety, and depression. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) has helped thousands of clients haunted by abuse histories or recent traumatic events. It also benefits patients who have not found relief with other therapies and those with chronic conditions or blocked personal and professional performance. EMDR therapy incorporates eye movements into a comprehensive approach that processes and releases information trapped in the body-mind, freeing people from disturbing images and body sensations, debilitating emotions, and restrictive beliefs. Not only does healing occur much more rapidly than in traditional therapy, but clients also experience a sense of joy, openness, and deep connection with others. EMDR seems to be a quantum leap in the human ability to heal trauma and maladaptive beliefs.
