Building Basic Therapeutic Skills
A Practical Guide for Current Mental Health Practice. Jeanne Heaton provides guidance to the student therapist with a book that
demonstrates both her humanity and wisdom. Of all those skills that she
promotes, perhaps the most important is her profound respect for the client.

Clear, concise, and down-to-earth. . . . It belongs in the library, if not the
hip pocket, of anyone who is studying to be a therapist or is just beginning
to practice. This is the book I wish I had written.
