As New. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" 176 Pages Indexed. How do you end therapy at the appropriate time? What is the apopropriate time? This book addresses these important questions, looking at the reasons why therapy can go on for too long or can come to a destructively premature ending, and offering advice on how to avoid either, with a timely conclusion. Using vivid examples and practical guidelines, Lesley Murdin examines the theoretical, technical and ethical aspects of endings. She emphasises that it is not only the patient who needs to change if one is to achieve a satisfactory outcome. The therapist must discover the changes in him/herself which are needed to enable an ending in psychotherapy. This is a unique contribution to therapeutic literature, and will prove invaluable to students and professionals alike.
