Psychotherapy. The Art of Wooing Nature: By Sheldon Roth, M.D. Northvale NJ/London: Jason Aronson, Inc., 1987. 294 pp.

Review by:
Edward H. Tobe

Numerous books have been written about psychotherapy, but Roth's book is a welcome, unique addition. This is so not only because of the excellent explanations of theory and technique it contains but also because of Roth's portrayal of psychotherapy. He covers a wide range of subjects and straightforwardly addresses the issue of the personality of the psychotherapist, especially the therapist's capacity for tolerating the emotional pressures of treating patients. Roth examines the impact on the patient of the therapist's gender and emphasizes the use of transference and countertransference in the treatment setting. He discusses the therapeutic alliance as well as the real relationship between therapist and patient.
