When Therapists Cry

When Therapists Cry addresses one of the most authentic and singularly human experiences a therapist can have in therapy: crying. While therapist crying in therapy is the explicit focus of this book, it is used as a springboard for understanding the various ways in which therapists’ emotions come alive—and become visible—in the therapy room. In depth clinical examples and conceptualizations from expert contributors illustrate what the experience of therapist crying looks and feels like: why therapists cry, how crying impacts the therapist and the treatment, what therapists feel about their tears, and the many ways in which therapists may engage with their own tears in order to facilitate therapeutic progress, ensure appropriate professional conduct, and deepen their clinical work.

The Crying Book

The Crying Book

This bestselling "lyrical, moving book: part essay, part memoir, part surprising cultural study" is an examination of why we cry, how we cry, and what it means to cry from a woman on the cusp of motherhood confronting her own depression (The New York Times Book Review). Heather Christle has just lost a dear friend to suicide and now must reckon with her own depression and the birth of her first child. As she faces her grief and impending parenthood, she decides to research the act of crying: what it is and why people do it, even if they rarely talk about it. Along the way, she discovers an artist who designed a frozen–tear–shooting gun and a moth that feeds on the tears of other animals. She researches tear–collecting devices (lachrymatories) and explores the role white women’s tears play in racist violence. Honest, intelligent, rapturous, and surprising, Christle’s investigations look through a mosaic of science, history, and her own lived experience to find new ways of understanding life, loss, and mental illness. The Crying Book is a deeply personal tribute to the fascinating strangeness of tears and the unexpected resilience of joy.

Maybe You Should Talk To Someone

Maybe You Should Talk To Someone

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! Now being developed as a television series with Eva Longoria and ABC! “Rarely have I read a book that challenged me to see myself in an entirely new light, and was at the same time laugh-out-loud funny and utterly absorbing.”—Katie Couric “This is a daring, delightful, and transformative book.”—Arianna Huffington, Founder, Huffington Post and Founder & CEO, Thrive Global “Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book.”—Susan Cain, New York Times best-selling author of Quiet From a New York Times best-selling author, psychotherapist, and national advice columnist, a hilarious, thought-provoking, and surprising new book that takes us behind the scenes of a therapist’s world—where her patients are looking for answers (and so is she). One day, Lori Gottlieb is a therapist who helps patients in her Los Angeles practice. The next, a crisis causes her world to come crashing down. Enter Wendell, the quirky but seasoned therapist in whose of­fice she suddenly lands. With his balding head, cardigan, and khakis, he seems to have come straight from Therapist Central Casting. Yet he will turn out to be anything but. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients’ lives — a self-absorbed Hollywood producer, a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can’t stop hooking up with the wrong guys — she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell. With startling wisdom and humor, Gottlieb invites us into her world as both clinician and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope between love and desire, meaning and mortality, guilt and redemption, terror and courage, hope and change. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone is rev­olutionary in its candor, offering a deeply per­sonal yet universal tour of our hearts and minds and providing the rarest of gifts: a boldly reveal­ing portrait of what it means to be human, and a disarmingly funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious lives and our power to transform them.

Against Therapy

Against Therapy

In this ground-breaking and highly controversial book, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson attacks the very foundations of modern psychotherapy from Freud to Jung, from Fritz Perls to Carl Rodgers. With passion and clarity, Against Therapy addresses the profession's core weaknesses, contending that, since therapy's aim is to change people, and this is achieved according to therapist's own notions and prejudices, the psychological process is necessarily corrupt. With a foreword by the eminent British psychologist Dorothy Rowe, this cogent and convincing book has shattering implications.

Uncharted Tearitory Mapping Australian Therapist Experiences Attitudes And Understandings Of Their In Session Tears

Uncharted Tearitory Mapping Australian Therapist Experiences Attitudes And Understandings Of Their In Session Tears

This study explored psychotherapist experiences of and attitudes to in-session crying. Historically, therapists were encouraged to hide their emotions from clients. Subsequently, self-disclosure and empathy theory and research developed with a focus on verbal modes of self-disclosure and empathic communication, to the neglect of the non-verbal dimension of these interventions. The current study attempted to locate therapist tearfulness within the theoretical discourses on self-disclosure and empathy, at a time when the shift towards a more relational focus in therapy has encouraged the therapist's greater use of affective self-disclosure. The data for this study comprised the responses of 439 Australian registered psychologists to measures of therapist crying tendency and attitudes, self-disclosure frequency and attitudes, trait affective and cognitive empathy, and crying in daily life. Comments provided by participants about their experiences of crying as a therapist or of seeing their own therapists cry, and about their views of therapist crying were qualitatively analysed to contextualise the quantitative data. The correlational and regression analyses revealed that participants had a greater tendency to cry if their beliefs about its appropriateness and therapeutic value were positive, they were prone to crying in response to positive emotional events, and they had personal experience of therapist crying as a client. Other factors, more modestly associated with an increased tendency for therapist crying, included greater experience as a therapist, more positive attitudes about self-disclosure, and more frequent use of self-disclosure to reveal personal and affective information to clients. Being cognitive-behavioural in therapeutic approach was associated with a significantly reduced tendency to cry as a therapist. Unexpectedly, gender and levels of affective empathy were unrelated to the tendency to cry in session. Although 61.5% of the sample had experienced therapist crying, it was typically a very mild response. The qualitative analyses revealed that those who had cried were aware of the potential harmful effects it could have for clients and of the necessity for maintaining a client-focus. The appropriateness or therapeutic value (or harm) associated with their crying, however, was seen as context-dependent; it depended primarily on the client's needs but also on the nature of the therapeutic relationship and the intensity and frequency of the therapist's crying. The findings point to the importance of the distinction between interpersonal empathy (i.e., how individuals react to others' emotions) and therapeutic empathy (i.e., how therapists respond to clients' emotional content). Of further significance to understanding therapist crying is the distinction between crying as a self-oriented emotional response (i.e., related to personal experience and distress) and crying as an other-oriented emotional response (i.e., triggered by the witnessing of others' emotions). Therapist crying was typically other-oriented and often associated with positive relational emotion (e.g., feelings of care, connection, or empathy). The study concluded that therapist tearfulness needs to be addressed in the professional literature and training curricula if therapists are to learn to use their emotional responses in ways that minimise harm and provide benefit to their clients.
