Summary

How does the therapeutic frame help therapists in their practice?

The Therapeutic Frame in the Clinical Context examines some of the key issues inherent in the intimate and very often intense therapeutic relationship. It addresses and clarifies perspectives on the creation of a therapeutic environment that is conducive to therapy.

The book addresses specific aspects of the therapeutic frame. How does a client feel about unexpectedly meeting her psychotherapist's son or daughter? How does a psychotherapist or counsellor practice within a 'frameless', often intrusive environment, in acute hospital wards? How does a counsellor manage the frame in the face of a life-threatening illness?

Using a wealth of examples from clinical practice, The Therapeutic Frame in the Clinical Context examines these issues and more, in a range of settings including the NHS, private practice, and the workplace, and provides valuable guidelines from a range of theoretical perspectives, including Jungian and psychoanalytic.
