How to Stop Winging It and Own It as a Therapist

by Alcée, Michael

This title helps therapists combine their graduate school knowledge with real experience, leading to the development of a coherent voice that is both personal and professional.

As a new or seasoned therapist, it's so hard to make transformational moments out of all that's being thrown at you in sessions. You're just winging it, but deep down you know there's a way to make your sessions more dynamic and intentionally responsive. This book shows how to develop a keen ear and sharp eye for the many changes coming your way.

Examples from music, movies, and literature will illustrate how the scientific principles of interpersonal neurobiology can help you claim your artistry as a therapist. This inspiring and informative book will help you find your voice and navigate the complexities and joys of the mysterious relationship that is therapy itself. Supervisors and new clinicians alike will be refreshed by the innovative vision of mental health practice as having a flexible and creative capacity.

Michael Alcée, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in Tarrytown, New York, and mental health educator at Manhattan School of Music. He won the American Psychological Association's 2019 Schillinger Memorial Prize for his essay on the link between jazz and psychoanalysis.
