Whether you are at the beginning, in the middle, or at the crossroads of your career, this book is chock-full of important information for the road ahead. Kramer’s broad experience and interests are all brought to bear as author and reader together explore matters of the mind, the body, and the spirit.
I think Chuck Kramer offers a fine message to therapists and lay people about the essential qualities in therapy — and in life.
— Mary Goulding
Therapeutic Mastery is like a breath of fresh air — invigorating and inspiring. It reads like a personal consultation with a warm, engaging, and insightful master therapist. It will be of great benefit to a wide range of practitioners, from beginners to those with much experience. …Techniques are clearly described and well illustrated with clinical examples; the effective use of selfdisclosure is particularly well presented. The consistent focus on the personal development of the therapist is powerful and important, and specific methods for enhancing emotional and spiritual development are very helpful. I highly recommend this wonderful book. I have been a psychotherapist for more than 30 years and have recently been thinking about retiring from practice. After reading Therapeutic Mastery, I am feeling energized and inspired, and much more hesitant to take that step.
