Time marches on!
Big days ahead - we fly to Las Vegas Thursday, and get married on Friday. Again, who scheduled a WEDDING in the middle of a Kickstarter project? :)
Regardless, there's still a project to fund! A colleague and I were talking today about how many clients we've had who have had a history of "bad therapy," experiences that have left them feeling un-connected and un-helped. They didn't really know how to tell that things weren't going well. No one had ever told them what to expect out of a good therapy session.
At that point in the conversation, my colleague said "how do we let clients know how to get good therapy? How can they tell what's right and what's wrong in a session?" I had just the answer for him. There are a million books for therapists out there, books that tell us about techniques to use, things to look for, different ways to do our job. Clients, however, seem to be on their own, left to negotiate their way through a system that is confusing at best, and secretive and byzantine at worst.
Your support of my book will mean that, in the flood of therapy and self-help books, at least one will be directed at improving the basic experience of being a therapy client. Please do what you can to share the word. There are 12 days left, and that's plenty of time to put the funding over the top and make this book a reality.
