Dealing with the therapeutic impasse is one of the most challenging tasks faced by therapists. "Therapeutic Impasses and Encounters" describes how the Integrity Model of psychotherapy provides an original solution to dealing with difficult issues such as resistance, acting out, counter-transference, guilt, value clashes and cultural diversity. The integrity model is based on an existential approach to living and views psychological difficulties as stemming from a lack of fidelity to one's values. In this book, the authors explore how this approach to psychotherapy can enhance other therapeutic models or stand on its own to offer a valuable alternative perspective on the causes of mental illness. " Therapeutic Impasses and Encounters" provides a provocative and insightful presentation of the subject of impasses in psychotherapy, as well as dealing with associated issues including the role of values in psychotherapy, therapist responsibility, community and spirituality. It will be of great interest to counsellors and psychotherapists.
