“Woolfolk has a triumph here. All psychotherapists–from the most experienced practitioners to fledgling apprentices–should read this book. It’s all about the therapeutic issues that no one ever tells you about, but you badly need to know.”–Brent D. Slife, PhD, Department of Psychology, Brigham Young University”Fascinating, provocative, and remarkably well written. Woolfolk’s critique of some of the field’s predominant conceptual, clinical, and scientific trends is destined to provoke sharp debates and foster new dialogues about how to practice and study psychotherapy. His elucidation of expertise and harmful effects sheds light on how psychosocial treatments work or fail to work. Also insightful is his depiction of psychotherapy as an enactment of humanism that respects the social context of human suffering and that has an impact on many aspects of life. This is a ‘must read’ for students, clinicians, and researchers who are willing to be challenged and inspired by a bold, daring, erudite, and ultimately optimistic perspective about the value and growth potential of psychotherapy.”–Louis G. Castonguay, PhD, Department of Psychology, The Pennsylvania State University

“What a rare pleasure to read this book! In an age of medicalized, fragmented, ‘alphabet soup’ psychotherapies, Woolfolk issues a refreshing and passionate call for the field to take a broad, historical view and emphasize the ‘human side’ of therapy. This book should be required reading for all students of psychology to understand the breadth and depth of their calling.”–Ilene A. Serlin, PhD, BC-DMT, Director, Union Street Health Associates, San Francisco

“Not since Bergin and Garfield’s Handbook of Psychotherapy and Behavior Change and the Franks’ Persuasion and Healing has such an insider critical perspective on psychotherapy been presented. However, Woolfolk’s book transcends both of these landmark works, situating psychotherapy in the larger context of mental health care. Drawing from history and philosophy as well as psychological and clinical science, this book synthesizes an enormous literature with the author’s characteristic insight, clarity, and wit. I recommend it highly for novices and veterans alike.”–John Z. Sadler, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and The Daniel W. Foster, MD, Professor of Medical Ethics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center
