Eminent authorities often use such cases as vehicles for discussion of theoretical and procedural points. We seldom have an opportunity to hear several well-known persons with variant points of view simultaneously discuss one specific instance taken from actual psychotherapy. This book attempts to approximate that desirable situation with many instances. In it you will find twenty-three anonymous "critical incidents," accounts of events which therapists in the field thought worthy of procedural, theoretical, or ethical comment. After each critical incident you will find the opinions of several eminent "consultants" on such issues as ways the case should have been handled, implications for theory and practice, and ethical and legal ramifications. In the last chapter the editors have analyzed, summarized, and drawn conclusions from the discussions by twenty-eight consultants about twenty-three distinct critical incidents"--Pref.
