Listening to Prozac
The therapeutic encounter is at the core of counselling and psychotherapy training and practice, regardless of therapeutic modality. This book introduces a cross-modality approach to the client-therapist encounter, drawing from humanistic, psychoanalytic, systemic, and integrative approaches.
Chapters introduce a range of client themes - the refusal to join in, the battle for control, the emotionally unavailable etc - and shows how these are enacted in the relationship. The authors invite you, as therapist, to interact creatively with the client, engaging directly in the drama. In this way, they provide a coherent framework within which to understand both the therapeutic relationship and the principles of their approach.
This book is highly recommended for any counselling and psychotherapy trainee, regardless of modality. It is a must-read, with each chapter directly addressing essential teaching and trainee concerns.

Review: Listening to Prozac: The Landmark Book About Antidepressants and the Remaking of the SelfUser Review - Rebecca Goldberg - Goodreads
Not quite what I was expecting. Way too dry and medical; perhaps better for a psychiatrist than a social worker. I ended up reading, then skimming, then dropping it. It wasn't worth reading after a while. Also a bit out-dated. Read full review
