Getting Started provides answers to questions that confront all beginning therapists, such as How do I start? What do I say? What if the client challenges me? What if the client is silent? How do I deal with fees? What about confidentiality? How should I end the sessions? It also answers those fundamental general concerns, like: how does psychotherapy work? How can I be helpful to my patients? Many books claim to be simply written and easy for an inexperienced therapist to understand. This one really is. It is user friendly and written with a minimum of jargon. Dr. Joel Kotin gives numerous examples of common situations and problems that therapists regularly encounter and hen tells the reader how to approach them. Dr. Kotin's tone is reassuring and supportive throughout.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As the commercial says, 'I like it.' It spells things out in a clear, understandable way-quite without jargon. It should be helpful to beginners and would make an excellent text from which to teach. -- Richard P. Fox, M.D.
This book contains much of the common sense and the uncommon sense of the therapeutics encounter. Through his lucid, organized, and compassionate approach, Kotin effectively guides the beginning therapist around the shoals that we are all most likely to founder on. Moreover, the book is an invaluable source for anyone teaching dynamic psychotherapy. By not oversimplifying, or trying to force resolutions where none may exist, Kotin provides a rationale for clinical work that brings a rare wisdom to the field. -- Morton Shane, M.D.
Almost four decades have passed since my friend Dr. Robert Wallerstein and I published The Teaching and Learning of Psychotherapy. Joel Kotin's work goes beyond our beginning and helps students to get started. He then goes far beyond his teachers. This important work should reach every beginning therapist. -- Rudolf Ekstein, Ph.D.
A work of great warmth and wisdom that welcomes the reader new to psychotherapy. Dr. Kotin offers a practical approach that respects the individuality of each therapist as well as the nuances in such a complex field. This is the book and the teacher we all wish we had encountered as we were getting started. -- R. James Perkins, M.D.
