You're feeling sad, anxious, or angry all the time, and you're thinking about seeing a therapist. But there's one problem: You don't know the first thing about therapists or whatever it is they get up to in those dimly lit offices. You ask your friends, your HMO, you thumb through the phonebook--but there are as many opinions as there are MFTs, LCSWs, and Ph.D.s waiting to add you to their appointment books. What are you, the curious and confused, to do?

Don't panic! Therapy 101 can guide you through the twists and turns of the mental health maze. You'll learn about the different kinds of mental health professionals and the services they offer. You'll explore the various kinds of therapy and learn which therapies are best for which problems. Filled with curious and entertaining tidbits about the colorful history of psychology, Therapy 101 is as entertaining as it is informative. With this book in your back pocket, you'll be able to make the most of your time on the couch.
