Last year I started seeing a therapist for the first time, initially as a side-effect of the computer programming bootcamp I was attending; this particular bootcamp, in fact, keeps a paid therapist on staff in order to offer free sessions to their students, but I ended up responding so well to the process that I continued seeing her in private practice once every two weeks after bootcamp was over.

One of the things that’s become of interest to me because of it is understanding more about the therapeutic process itself — as I mentioned to her a few weeks ago, when you’re a client and have never experienced therapy with other clients, you have no way of comparing what your experience is like to what others go through, other than to refer to famous therapy situations in movies and television, and God only knows how realistic THOSE are — so she recommended this book to me, in which back in the early s a therapist and a creative writer made a deal to each keep a journal about their feelings after each session they had, only comparing notes with each other after the experiment was over and a book was published of both journals.
I have to admit, it’s a fascinating read — it’s amazing to see how many times the two would have the exact opposite reactions to a particular thing that would happen in a particular session, and it was also really interesting to see how the behavior that the client thought of as “natural and spontaneous” was in so many cases in the therapist’s eyes an expected reaction based on classic personality patterns he studied as a psychology student.
Also interesting as simply a time capsule of the countercultural era — taking place in the San Francisco Bay area, the journals are filled with references to encounter groups, active sexual manipulation of patients as a form of “intimacy therapy,” and “shocking” new revelations about how beneficial it can be for a couple to attend therapy together — this will be of strong interest to those like me who have had positive experiences with therapy themselves and are now curious to see how the process compares and contrasts to someone else’s experience.
It comes recommended specifically to those people. A therapeutic relationship The relationship between a therapist and a patient is the most delicate but also the most unusual one.
The patient is expected to be completely honest and wiling to expose their innermost secrets and vulnerability fe the therapist. On the other hand, the therapist remains distal and objective, who offers the uttermost care while maintaining clear boundaries.
While the patient sees one therapist and the therapist perhaps matters a lot to them, the therapist sees many pa A therapeutic relationship The relationship between a therapist and a patient is the most delicate but also the most unusual one. While the patient sees one therapist and the therapist perhaps matters a lot to them, the therapist sees dpn patients and compartmentalizes their time and mental resources.
It is a strange relationship—the therapist knows the patient so well that perhaps no one else understands the patient better than the therapist, while the patient knows almost nothing about the therapist, and yet, a therapeutic relationship could not and should not become friendship.
To make this relationship even more complicated, the therapist is paid by the patient, either directly private practice or indirectly public healthcare. Therefore, the therapist is the service provider and the patient is the customer. However, unlike other customer relationships, the feedback channel is absent here. The therapist etrapia not know in dno cases how the patient likes or dislikes therapy—because it would be a very awkward conversation.
In fact, we therapists never know if our patients like us or not, if our patients find therapy useful or not, if we are giving them what they need or not, we can only make educated guess. In-between sessions, I often wonder if my patients ever think of me and I also find myself thinking of them a lot—not just remembering what happened in the last session and preparing for the upcoming one, but appreciating who they are and reflecting on what they said.
There is a part of me who applauds this caring, but another part of me worries that I might be over-invested in igvin therapeutic relationship, which might render my ability to help my patients and compromise my own well-being.
Sometimes I wonder what matters in therapy—is it my skills and tactics, ve my caring? What do my patients appreciate—is it my doing or being?
We therapists pride ourselves for our ls and clinical yaolm, for example, the number of patients that we have helped, the toolbox that we have developed over the years, and our past success. But is it true? I remember one patient who said the following to me. It was after a very fruitful and empowering session and she had started making incredible changes. She clearly did not applaud my skills.

In fact, I tried many of the skills that are supposed to work but did not. In my opinion, it was when I expressed my concerns about her daughter and processed our relationship openly to show her bias in other interpersonal relationships that she reached the tipping point in therapy. It was the therapeutic relationship that did the healing! This book is not particularly readable, but it tells a marvellous story. Irvin Yalom offered individual therapy to a young woman who struggled with her inability to experience emotions, write, and assert herself, provided that the therapist and the patient would keep a journal of each therapy session.
Over the span of two years, they had sixty sessions in total and they also exchanged their writings several times. Not surprisingly, the therapist and the patient had very different understanding of therapy.
I would say that we therapists are often delusional—we think we know what is best for our patients and we believe we understand what our patients experience because we make the agenda. However, the patient might have a completely different agenda and they might be looking for totally different things in treatment. The patient we know is what the patient wants us to know. The therapist, on the other hand, is the one who does not know but thinks he knows.
The skills and techniques that we take pride in mean nothing to our patients. Who would have thought about that? Care for your patients and the skills will come. I get about one book every year that I manage to read at exactly the right time in my life. This is one of them. Not only am I the same age as Ginny Elkin when she started this therapy, I also have a lot of the same problems. Reading about her therapy was like therapy for myself, and I learned so many things about myself, about others, and life in general that it feels right to call this book life-changing.
As such this review isn’t going to be much help to anyone who just wants to read an intere I get about one book every year that I manage to read at exactly the right time in my life. As such this review isn’t going to be much help to anyone who just wants to read an interesting book. The writing style is difficult in parts I found Dr E, reports often unnecessarily long-windedand if I didn’t relate so strongly to the client in this situation I doubt I would have enjoyed this book very much; as it is ka therapy, so many things are repeated over and over again so that the frustration both participants felt becomes palpable to the reader, and not in a good way.
For anyone interested in this book I’d recommend reading both forewords; if you can’t relate to the problems described in them, don’t bother.
If you can, it might just be an amazing read. A must read for everyone who is interested in psychotherapy. Cried at the ending.
Book doesn’t necessarily follow a specific plot, so it was mostly just following character doon. I think it’s an excellent book.
I really love books like this one. When I read it I had to stop and thinking about my situation because I am in therapy as well as Ginny and certain situations brought back a lot of emotions. I recommend this masterpiece. This book opened the way for me in my own journey. Took me a couple of years but, utilizing Greek mythology, I was terspia to devise a therapy orvin myself and with my therapist, the road to wholeness was an exciting, even delightful, one despite the inevitable emotional potholes along the way.
