Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 911–912. Reviews the book, A Guide for Beginning Psychotherapists by Joan S. Zaro, Roland Barach, Deborah Jo Nedelman, and Irwin S. Dreiblatt (see record 1979-11626-000). This is an ambitious yet unpretentious book. Its four authors sought to capture the full range of practical difficulties that plague nearly all tyro psychotherapists and to develop matching guidelines to help them capitalize on these moments of adversity. In developing their format, the authors assume that their strategies and tactics apply to therapists of all persuasions. This ecumenical spirit is also reflected in the book's many timely clinical examples and anecdotes that depict therapists from a variety of orientations. This small volume is geared to the needs of students in clinical social work, psychiatry, clinical psychology, and psychiatric nursing. But it is also intended to reach clinical supervisors, especially the beginners. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
