These ten fictional short stories give students of counselling and psychotherapy a unique insight into what actually goes on in therapy. Exploring aspects of the client-therapist relationship, the reader is given a fly-on-the-wall view of the therapeutic process. Rather than suggesting a 'correct' approach, they explore possibilities and provide entertaining, vivid and thought-provoking descriptions of the therapeutic journey. Issues explored include: - contracting - boundaries and confrontation - self-disclosure on the part of the therapist - dream interpretation - the influence of the consulting room environment - conflicting belief systems. These are much more than just engaging stories - Phil Lapworth draws on over 25 years of clinical experience to show how the student can integrate theory into real practice with real clients. The final chapter explicitly highlights the specific theories, models and issues that are illustrated throughout and provides questions, learning objectives, exercises and further reading to encourage critical thinking. A door into the often-hidden perspective of what a therapist might think and feel within the therapy session, this 'shrink-wrapped' resource will be treasured by counselling and psychotherapy trainees and practitioners for years to come. Reader Responses to Tales from the Therapy Room: 'Delightful, moving stories, recounted with pith and wit' 'What a little gem this book is. Each short story distinct, crisp and unpredictable' 'A delightful, thoughtful and often funny peek into an imaginary therapy room' 'I'm limiting myself to 1 tale a night, so that I can savour it a bit longer' 'These tales have something of a detective story about them...unnerving and compelling at the same time like a good thriller, with a wonderful twist in the end' 'Beautifully constructed and lightly executed' 'Distinct, crisp and unpredictable... I came to believe that even the author was surprised by what came next' 'I found this book un-put-down-able and re-read several of the stories' 'Phil Lapworth seems to have invented a new genre of his own. Each story is a little jewel, and I had to keep reminding myself that they were fictional' 'He has caught the poignancy of human vulnerability as well as its absurdity and humour' 'These stories stand undeniably on their own as surprising and delightful duets of the psychotherapeutic relationship, often concluding with a wry and humorous twist, always entertaining and warm-hearted. We look forward to reading more such tales'

This collection of ten fictional short stories invites the reader inside the consulting room, right to the heart of the therapeutic encounter, to witness what goes on between a therapist and his clients as they engage with issues such as racism, sexuality, death and dying, disfigurement, coupledom, the "thrownness" of life and other existential concerns. Based on the author's extensive experience of clinical practice, these stories take us inside the therapist's mind, into his internal world and the process of his supervision. Whether warm and compassionate, thoughtful and reflective, reactive and critical, or simply flying by the seat of his pants, the therapist is exposed in all his human vulnerability as he draws on his knowledge and experience in his attempts to address the concerns of his clients. These challenging, disturbing and humorous stories provide a rich resource for the reader's own thinking and discussion--specifically encouraged in the final chapter where the author works through each story presenting themes and theoretical aspects, and provides a series of questions for reflection. Being fictional, these stories escape the confines of a textbook's clinical case examples and have free rein over the unfolding plot; written by a practicing psychotherapist, they have the ring of authenticity that comes from many years' experience in clinical practice.

You often see books on theoretical approaches and new interventions in therapy, but you rarely, if ever, find a book where therapists discuss their personal reactions to and views of the therapy they offer. In this amazing volume, Tales from Family Therapy: Life-Changing Clinical Experiences, psychologists, psychotherapists, and marriage and family counselors come together to share their unique experiences in therapy sessions and how they’ve learned that often the clients know more than they do!

These stories represent to the authors some of the most special, most rewarding, and most puzzling moments in all their years of therapy. They invite you to share in their recollections and discussions of: the power of speaking accepting, respecting, and working with the realities clients bring the importance of first impressions in counseling how personal narratives develop through relationship coloring outside the lines of the dominant culture helping clients determine when rocking the boat is needed listening to your clients and not just your theories developing the self-of-therapist In the therapy room anything can happen, and as Tales from Family Therapy shows, anything does.

In an educational era defined by large school campuses and overcrowded classrooms, it is easy to overlook the era of one-room schools, when teachers filled every role, including janitor, and provided a familylike atmosphere in which children also learned from one another. In Tales from Kentucky One-Room School Teachers, William Lynwood Montell reclaims an important part of Kentucky's social, cultural, and educational heritage, assembling a fun and fascinating collection of schoolroom stories that chronicle a golden era in Kentucky. The firsthand narratives and anecdotes in this collection cover topics such as teacher-student relationships, day-to-day activities, lunchtime foods, students' personal relationships, and, of course, the challenges of teaching in a one-room school. Montell includes tales about fund-raising pie suppers, pranks, outrageous student behavior (such as the quiet little boy whose first "sharing" involved profanity), and variety of other topics. Montell even includes some of his own memories from his days as a pupil in a one-room school. Tales from Kentucky One-Room School Teachers is a delightful glimpse of the history of education.
