About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a comprehensive overview of the overlap between personal and political aspects of life within the context of psychotherapy. It sketches out a clear and detailed narrative of the complex interrelations between psychotherapy, society, and politics. It articulates a theoretical basis for politically conscious and socially responsible therapy work, as well as the guiding principles in implementing this position. Many psychotherapists find themselves struggling when faced with political issues that come up in treatment, both overtly and covertly. Many of them find value in clarifying political aspects of clients' lives and psychotherapy itself, but are hesitant to touch upon this loaded issue or do t kw how to approach it. Nissim Avissar's book opens up new possibilities of thinking afresh on psychotherapy, in a way that takes into account real life conditions and the effects of professional work on the social environment.
