There is a therapy crisis in America today--people are spending thousands of dollars on therapy, hoping and believing that they will be helped--but instead, many of them are being mislead. Sometimes, therapy may even take them further from emotional health. In other cases, ineffective therapy methods combined with uninformed and emotionally needy patients create therapy dependence. Add insurance companies to this mix, and you may wonder if there are any dedicated, caring, and ethical mental healthcare providers to be found.
Author Richard Zwolinski's passions include professional ethics and patient rights. He believes in getting patients the best, most effective care for the least cost and shortest amount of time, and with this book, he puts the therapist on the couch and the patient in the armchair. With checklists and charts to analyze and assess the quality of any current or future therapist, you will be able to identify and hire the ethical and clinically excellent therapists who deplore the damaging practices perpetuated by uscrupulous providers.
