The Most Honest, Revealing, Fascinating Account of What Goes On In Therapy

George Weinberg

St. Martin's Griffin


Trade Paperback

Candid, compassionate, and groundbreaking. The Heart of Pscyhotherapy opened the door to the therapeutic office more than a decade ago, offering a generation of readers an unparalleled evaluation of what does-and what should-go on in therapy. This edition, published with a new expanded foreward written by the author, reaffirms Dr. George Weinberg's understanding of therapy as an intimate relationship between two people-the patient who has reached out for help and the therapist who wants to give it-and discusses particular issues that have emerged in the 1990s. In this new edition, Dr. Weinberg:

-Advises the healthy male on how to express his feelings openly
-Challenges therapists to refrain from imposing their prior beliefs on patients
-Discusses the needed feminist influence in psychotherapy

Wise and sensitive, powerful and courageous, The Heart of Psychotherapy is an unusual, penetrating book that has long been regarded as the leading work in its field.


Praise for The Heart of Psychotherapy

“Reminiscent of classical murder mysteries...complex investigations of a master sleuth searching for the demon within, the repressed evil, the killer of the psyche.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Wise, frank, and marvelously readable...Weinberg is a hard writer not to like...His grip on character and keenness in spelling out the stages of an analysis bind the reader to the page.” —Kirkus Review

“Engaging, uplifting, and refreshing...The nine encounters of The Taboo Scarf range from poignant insight on the part of the therapist to existential sleuthing.” —The Boston Globe
