Abstract

Every time we walk into the therapy room, our clients confront us with impossible situations and painful conundrums. No wonder, then, that so many of us retreat to the seeming safety of some form of recipe-focused therapy. Faced with the frightening uncertainty of not knowing in advance how to hep, we grasp for the comfortable certainty of an algorithm—a step-by-step formula that tells you what you should do and when and how you should do it.
