Charlie - An Unwanted Child? Summary

Charlie - An Unwanted Child? by Jacobs

'All the while I very much got the impression when I was young that my mother didn't love me and doesn't love me. I think of myself as unlovable...'

These are Charlie's opening words to her potential therapist. Six therapists are given the opportunity of assessing Charlie: what do they wish to know about her? how do they understand her? how might they work with her? and what outcome can they predict for her as a result of therapy?

In this fascinating book - which starts with Charlie's own story - the reader has the chance to see six different therapists at work, drawing on the same initial material from the one real client. The similarities and differences between therapies and therapists are highlighted. And at the end the reader is able to enter Charlie's experience of the process, and decide with her, which one she might choose in her search for a therapist.

This highly original volume will appeal to a wide range of students and practitioners involved in counselling and psychotherapy, particularly those interested in comparing different therapeutic approaches.

Charlie - An Unwanted Child? Reviews

"This book does offer some in-roads into the careful and refined procedures that take place in psychotherapy without compromising too much the aesthetics, essence and compassion that underpins the work and one is struck throughout by the sensitivity of the therapists in each case. In establishing standards for practice and monitoring the efficacy of treatment, this book provides an exemplar of placing thepatient at the centre of the feedback process...identifying a therapist you can believe in has a fundamental impact on the therapeutic endeavour." - Therapeutic Communities
