WPF Therapy Book of the Month – November 2018

WPF Therapy Book of the Month – November 2018

How to Flourish as a Psychotherapist by Professor Brett Kahr. How do you develop a truly rich and rewarding career in psychotherapy? How can you find joy in such painful work? How do you develop your skills in the field? How can you conquer your creative inhibitions? In short, how do you flourish as a psychotherapist? Brett Kahr answers these questions, and so many more, in his brilliant new book, painting a frank portrait of the life of the psychotherapist. Taking the reader through the life cycle of the therapist, he offers lots of practical advice, from assessing one’s suitability for the career, to managing one’s finances, to preparing for death. Kahr has produced a must-read, gripping account of how you can thrive in every respect in this complex and rewarding career.

During the launch held for his new book How to Flourish as a Psychotherapist, Brett shared some of his inspiration for writing this book. He was shocked when an acquaintance remarked on the ‘ugliness’ of psychotherapists. But it got him thinking. Burdened with misery and immersed in trauma, are we therapists too often weighed down by our work, and preoccupied only with enduring? Brett Kahr’s new book is an attempt to shift this bar. As he argues in his blog, we become better therapists for our clients when we learn, not just how to survive in our profession, but how to thrive.
