Therapeutic Improvisation

How to Stop Winging It and Own It as a Therapist

W. W. Norton & Company 2022

As a new or seasoned therapist, it's so hard to make transformational moments out of all that's being thrown at you in sessions. You're just winging it, but deep down you know there's a way to make your sessions more dynamic and intentionally responsive. Therapeutic Improvisation: How to Stop Winging It and Own It as a Therapist (Norton, 2022) shows how to develop a keen ear and sharp eye for the many changes coming your way.

Examples from music, movies, and literature will illustrate how the scientific principles of interpersonal neurobiology can help you claim your artistry as a therapist. This inspiring and informative book will help you find your voice and navigate the complexities and joys of the mysterious relationship that is therapy itself. Supervisors and new clinicians alike will be refreshed by the innovative vision of mental health practice as having a flexible and creative capacity.
