Being and Relating in Psychotherapy: Ontology and Therapeutic Practice edited by Christine Driver, Stephen Crawford and John Stewart. Published by Palgrave Macmillan UK, 2013; 256 pp; £21.99 paperback

Review by:
Alison Knight-Evans

This thoughtful and serious book contains an impressive collection of 15 papers, editors Christine Driver, Stephen Crawford and John Stewart having done an excellent job in bringing these together. The book is arranged in three parts: ‘The Therapeutic Relationship’, ‘The Personal and Interpersonal’ and, finally, ‘The Personal, Social and Cultural’.

The first part, ‘The Therapeutic Relationship’, contains four papers, with an existential theme running throughout, and which, coming myself from an analytic background offered an interesting review of other ways of looking at relating.
