20 beautifully presented picture cards, across key concepts of Psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy is one of the most valuable inventions of the last hundred years. It has an exceptional power to raise our levels of emotional well-being, improve our relationships, redeem the atmosphere in our families and assist us in mining our professional potential.
However, psychotherapy is also profoundly misunderstood. It is the subject of a host of unhelpful fantasies, hopes and suspicions. Its logic is rarely explained and its voice seldom heard with sufficient directness.
This is a set of twenty beautiful cards, each containing a short essay on a key concept in psychotherapy, creating a pack that offers a perfect introduction to the subject. We will learn about the unconscious, the superego, the meaning of slips of the tongue, transference, and many other classic and essential ideas from the history of therapy.
Cards Include: Avoidant Attachment / Breakdown / Compliance / Mourning / The Goals of Therapy / Sublimation / Anxious Attachment / Feeling Rather than Thinking / Symptoms and Causes / The Unconscious
Extract from the Cards:
'Therapy cannot make us happy every day, but its benefits are tangible nevertheless. After a course of therapy, we will stand to feel substantially freer. We will realise that what we had believed to be our inherent personality was really just a position we had crouched into to deal with the prevailing atmosphere. Having taken a measure of the true present situation, we may accept that there could be other, sufficiently safe, ways for us to be.'
