Praise for Becoming a Therapist "Becoming a Therapist is the perfect book to begin the journey toward becoming an effective therapist. Dr. Thomas Skovholt has created a book that is easy to read BUT very hard to put down. The perfect book for the beginning counseling student." -Jon Carlson, PsyD, EdD Distinguished Professor Governors State University "This resource is filled with practical and personal advice, relevant stories and examples, and reads more like help from a friend than a typical textbook." -Roberta L. Nutt, PhD, ABPP Visiting Professor & Training Director Counseling Psychology Program University of Houston "Ah, now this is the book I wish had been available when I entered the field.

Horne Dean and Distinguished Research Professor President-Elect, Society of Counseling Psychology College of Education The University of Georgia "Becoming a Therapist's informal style is accessible and engaging and yet soundly grounded in evidence and in the wisdom Skovholt has developed through his career-long research on psychotherapists and their development." -Rodney K.
