Myths, Misconceptions, and Invalid Assumptions of Counseling and Psychotherapy

Jeffrey Kottler and Richard S. Balkin

  • Written by two highly respected authors with a combination of deep clinical and research expertise, the book questions many of the assumed "truths" that counselors and therapists take for granted.
  • The book trains a critical eye on the field of counseling and the basic tenets of the practice of psychotherapy.
  • Chapters pose unexamined questions such as "what's so special about the 50-minute hour" or "why don't the effects of therapy last" and then guide the reader through what is known, what is assumed, and how to think critically about the issue at hand.
