Our contemporary world is one in which 'the customer is always right', and therapists, like many other professionals, are increasingly beset by rules and regulations that undermine their authority and autonomy. While many books emphasize the therapist's duties and obligations in maintaining the wellbeing of his or her clients, this book is intended to redress the balance in favour of emphasizing the wellbeing of the therapist.Mavis Klein draws on her thirty-five years of experience as an individual, group, and family therapist to provide trainee and beginner therapists with confidence in the practice of their profession. As this book includes an outline of the author's original personality typology, it may also add another string to the bow of experienced practitioners.The book is informal, anecdotal, humourously self-revelationary, and jargon-free
