--- from the publisher


"Self-Disclosure in Psychotherapy and Recovery should be required reading for all psychotherapists and counselors. Therapists and clinicians who treat alcoholics and people with various drug problems and other addictions will especially benefit from reading this book. Dr. Forrest writes with clarity, insight, and an incisive understanding of the therapeutic uses and management of therapist and client self-disclosure in effective psychotherapy relationships. This text presents the first in-depth and comprehensive examination of therapist and client self-disclosure in psychotherapy relationships and therapeutic work with chemically dependent people. Counselor trainees, graduate psychology students, supervisors and faculty, and experienced therapists and clinicians from diverse professional backgrounds alike will find this book to be stimulating, provocative, thought provoking, and helpful."—William Glasser, MD, Reality Therapy Institute

"Dr. Forrest's book is a pioneering effort to explore the difficult and controversial arena of therapist self-disclosure in the treatment setting. He examines the range of options suggested by different approaches to therapy for how, when and how much self-disclosure is therapeutically beneficial and looks at the ethical issues inherent in counselor self-disclosure. This book is recommended for students and counselors/therapists early in their careers and will serve as a refresher for seasoned veterans of the therapy arena."—Bruce Carruth, PhD, San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico
