Dialogues for Discovery
Improving Psychotherapy's Effectiveness

cover of dialogues for discovery book

For Psychotherapists of all modalities

“Make more frequent and higher quality discoveries in every therapy session.”

“Although the use of Socratic dialogue and guided discovery have long been encouraged in psychotherapy, it is only in the last decade or so that enough data has gathered to give clear clinical guidance about their use. Dialogues for Discovery is an exceptional resource for therapists seeking to guide their clients towards discovery and hope. This book provides practical guidance and strategies for managing common therapy impasses and dilemmas, such as low client motivation, inflexible beliefs, and alliance ruptures. It is a clinically sophisticated guide that is grounded in empirical evidence and theoretical knowledge”
