Talking to a Stranger: A Consumer's Guide to Therapy, by Lindsay Knight, Fontana, 1986, 330 pages, £2.95

Review by:
J. Ann Duncan

This is a readable book, which fulfils a useful function for the general reader not covered by existing, more specialized works. It provides a helpful guide to ‘the talking treatments’ for those unfamiliar with them, who may be bewildered by their variety and some of the concepts. It is intended as a basic introduction, which readers can then supplement with more detailed works. Lindsay Knight discusses the various reasons for seeking treatment, and the different sorts of therapies available, based on interviews both with those who have experienced them and with practitioners. There is a list of addressess and organizations which would help the consulter to find the right therapy, with a rough guide to 1986 prices.
