A conversational and practical guide to the next level of professional development.

Louis Cozolino, one of our most compelling clinical writers, takes us inside the mind and heart of a seasoned therapist, carrying on the tradition of personal and professional writing begun in The Making of a Therapist. This book discusses some of the more abstract concepts and ways of interacting with clients such as relaxed curiosity, finding the secret ally, and discovering the deep narrative. Also addressed are clinical concepts such as related states of mind, the process of change, free-floating attention, and listening with the third ear.

More than just theoretical commentary, the book offers concrete clinical advice for the experienced therapist and brings a fresh perspective to some of the most current clinical challenges including the complexities of executive functioning; treating clients with internet addiction; and taking responsibility for your continued personal growth, clinical supervision, and education after leaving school.

Praise For…

From genes to brain to body to relationships and even to the internet, Lou Cozolino weaves a warm, eye-opening, and informative tale of our development as helpers and healers. Reading it has made me a better clinician and, more importantly, a better human being. I highly recommend it not only for therapists, but for anyone interested in humanity at this moment in time. It's a wonderful book.
