In this book, Windy Dryden selects the eight ideas that have had the most influence on him in his career as a psychotherapist, and which form the bedrock of his work.

These ideas reflect both his specific and his general interests in the field. The book offers insight into the author's practice and the theories that have informed his work in a therapeutic setting. It discusses the role that attitudes play in psychologically disturbed and psychologically healthy responses to life's adversities. The book also elaborates the author's views on what promotes psychological change as well as why he considers the concepts of responsibility and choice to be so important in psychotherapy. Finally, the book highlights Windy Dryden's more recent work in the field of single-session therapy.

This accessible and engaging book will be a fascinating read for counsellors and psychotherapists, both in training and practice.
