In this entertaining, surprising, and thought-provoking book, family therapist Stanley Siegel challenges conventional therapeutic thinking with an unusual approach: instead of trying to "fix" clients, he encourages them to appreciate their own adaptive ingenuity. In the process, something remarkable almost always happens -- as in the case of the couple who solved their conflict only after literally building a wall within their home. These dozen stories demonstrate Siegel's convictions that the therapist has as much to learn as the patient, and that real healing is possible only when the healer truly respects his or her patients.
