`This book is really about how therapists resolve discomforting conflicts and what such conflicts reveal about the nature of therapy. Windy Dryden approaches this task by way of a series of interviews with experienced therapists from a range of therapeutic backgrounds... the interviews are both readable and engaging... and often give us as much insight into the therapists themselves as to the dilemmas.... This book would clearly serve as a useful source of discussion for students of therapy or counselling. It is also a thoughtful and interesting read for any practitioner' - Clinical Psychology Forum

This collection of interviews examines crucial issues of uncertainty which leading British and American therapists have encountered during the course of their work. This revised edition includes a new chapter by Tim Bond.

Using a conversational model, the therapists are questioned about their own dilemmas, past and present, as practitioners. Focusing on the similarities in the therapists' experiences of working with clients, six main `dilemma' themes emerged from these interviews: compromise dilemmas, boundary dilemmas, dilemmas of allegiance, role dilemmas, dilemmas of responsibility and impasse dilemmas. Discussion issues are put forward at the end of each interview to encourage readers to explore further particular problems that surfaced during the course of the dialogue.

`..."Doing therapy inevitably involves dilemmas" says Paul Wachtel in [this book]... Not to discuss those dilemmas in an evaluative, creative and wondering way is to do both ourselves and the profession a disservice... The format [of this book] not only invites the reader into a wider understanding of the orientations of others, but also challenges some assumptions which may have gone unchallenged before' - Counselling News

`A considerable array of talent provide chapters... sometimes the interview provided an excellent insight into the nature of the interviewee and that's exciting... [In] the final chapter Tim Bond says dilemmas provide "the challenge of learning from the dilemma about what its existence tells us about our own involvement in the provision of therapy, and about the nature of therapy itself". This statement alone should make therapists read the book' - British Psychological Society Counselling Psychology Review
