Designed for psychotherapists and counsellors in training, An Introduction to the Therapeutic Frame clarifies the concept of the frame - the way of working set out in the first meeting between therapist and client. The author, an experienced psychotherapist and teacher, uses lively and extensive case material to show how the frame can both contain feelings and further understanding within the therapeutic relationship. She takes the reader through each stage of therapeutic work, from the first meeting to the final contact, and looks at those aspects of management that beginners often find difficult, such as fee payment, letters and telephone calls, supervision and evaluation. Her practical advice on how to handle these situations will be invaluable to trainees, as well as to those involved in their training.

For the individual who hasn't worked in an intensive relationship before, the writing gives a helpful insight into the workings of the therapist's mind, frequently demystifying processes seldom discussed outside a supervisory relationship. - Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing
