How do patients experience psychotherapy? What qualities do they value in a therapist? What makes them leave before the process is complete? Sixty patients discuss in detail what worked and what didn't in their therapy. Useful and informative responses help therapists understand their own mistakes (often, for example, a failure to elicit and respond appropriately to a patient's disagreement) and avoid premature terminations. This candid and refreshing perspective will enhance every therapist's capacity to be helpful.
