Psychologist and author Dr. Jacqueline Simon Gunn discusses what it's like to be In the Therapist's Chair on Wednesday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ross-Cherry Creek Branch Library. The evening will include a discussion, Q&A and signing of Dr. Gunn's new book.
If you've ever been curious about how psychotherapy works, join the discussion with Dr. Jacqueline Simon Gunn. As a trained Psychologist, Dr. Gunn demystifies the role of the therapist and reveals the thought process, conflicts and doubts occurring within the trained expert whom you've turned to for help.
Have you ever been curious about what a therapist's thoughts are while she is sitting with a patient? Do therapists feel emotions during session? What are they really thinking? How do therapists choose what personal information to share with their patients?
Dr. Jacqueline Simon Gunn's new book In the Therapist's Chair addresses these complex questions and many more. Creatively written and ingeniously told, each chapter provides the reader with exclusive examples of the therapeutic process as it happens, while skillfully teaching the art of psychotherapy. The book clearly illuminates specific techniques of psychotherapy as it is lived and experienced in the treatment setting. Compelling and even humorous at times, In the Therapist's Chair will appeal to the clinician, those in therapy and people interested in therapy.
