Product Details

Praise

“Soars into sublime meditation…what makes this book so extraordinary is her willingness to reveal exactly what goes on in the sometimes mysterious encounter between therapist and patient.” —Los Angeles Times 

“Ms. Rogers tells an important truth…Healers are inevitably wounded themselves, just because they are human, and Ms. Rogers…challenges her fellow clinicians to acknowledge how their own personal histories shape their work as therapists. What finally shines forth from Ms. Rogers’ narrative of affliction is her stern and compassionate understanding of the ‘terrible responsibility’ she and her fellow therapists have ‘of holding another’s heart in our hands,’ while ‘not forsaking ourselves.'”Sharon O’Brien, New York Times

“A book at once somber and powerfully affecting—a story of how those of us who work psychologically with others can fail them (and ourselves) or be of great assistance. She writes a clearm honest, compelling narrative which at times sings lyrically, and constantly instructs.” —Dr. Robert Coles, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Children of Crisis

“A beautifully written first-person account of a novice therapist’s trial by fire… [Rogers] humanizes therapists and provides an illuminating inside view of their training and the two-sided nature of their work.” —Kirkus Reviews
