From the Publisher

If therapy is a relational process, it takes a person on the therapist’s end. The goal of this book is to capture the therapist’s evolving sense of self as it is shaped by our experiences as active participants in a creative interaction.
The essays in this book are first-person accounts, by eleven therapists, of some “Aha!” moments when they got to understand themselves better, and to understand better why they do what they do.
Essays by: Cheryl Dolinger Brown, Mary J. Giuffra, Marianne Gunther, Lou Hagood , Claire Haiman, Robin Kappy, Linda Marks, Merle Molofsky, Marjorie Rand, Susan Rudnick, and Claire Beth Steinberger.

A New Trauma Therapy for Treating the 'Untreatable'

At the turn of the millennium, a young woman moved to a cabin on the Mull of Kintyre, a headland in southwest Scotland renowned for the bleak beauty of its cliffs and the treacherous swirl of the currents below. There she took in two horses, and for a time the silent companionship of those geldings offered more in the way of healing than the countless prescriptions she’d been given by psychiatrists, or the well-meaning attempts by therapists to excavate the most painful parts of her past. Then, in early 2013, she did something she had promised herself she would never do again: She bought a bot

The Atlantic Daily: Striking Syria

Air Strike in Syria: The U.S. launched more than 50 missiles at a Syrian airfield last night in retaliation for Assad’s alleged nerve-gas attack on civilians. This military intervention on humanitarian grounds marks a major policy shift for Trump, who’s famously promised to put “America first”; it’s also a big departure from the Obama doctrine of foreign policy. Key U.S. allies support the strike, as do some Democratic leaders, but others say it was unconstitutional, and some of Trump’s strongest supporters are disappointed. Here’s a practical guide to the debate—but either way, the strike com
