    Happy New Year folks I wanted to start off 2018 by sharing one of my favorite books from 2017 The Myth of the Untroubled Therapist by Marie AdamsWhile the title of the book attracted me enough to buy it despite the steep price tag the content kept me hooked enough to discipline myself to read only 1 chapter a day savoring each thoroughly It talks about how the personal lives of psychotherapists also impacts their professional lives and how we can work with it Immensely validating informational one of the best supervision sessions I have ever had

    Reading this book felt serendipitous as I found it just when I needed it however the themes debates and reflections contained within it are validating and thought provoking for every person working in a therapeutic role I would highly recommend giving it a read from whichever discipline school of thought or level of experience you are coming from

    A welcome book accessibly written I would have liked a bit exploration of the process of making decisions about disclosure and means of assessing fitness to practice in times of difficulty but of course that's going to be hugely variable across therapists clients and situations
