Summary

A conversational and practical guide to the next level of professional development.

Louis Cozolino, one of our most compelling clinical writers, takes us inside the mind and heart of a seasoned therapist, carrying on the tradition of personal and professional writing begun in The Making of a Therapist. This book discusses some of the more abstract concepts and ways of interacting with clients, such as relaxed curiosity, finding the secret ally, and discovering the deep narrative. Also addressed are clinical concepts such as related states of mind, the process of change, free-floating attention, and listening with the third ear.

More than just theoretical commentary, the book offers concrete clinical advice for the experienced therapist and brings a fresh perspective to some of the most current clinical challenges, including the complexities of executive functioning; treating clients with internet addiction; and taking responsibility for your continued personal growth, clinical supervision, and education after leaving school.

I am not at a stage to say what is wrong.

The information in this book is valuable on my path to being a counselling Psychogist. I have to say, I have used some of its information already. like any book, I will need to refer back to it. Great insights

good but...

The narrator was clearly but emotionally devoid. It could have done with some pace.

Best book!!!

This is a must read for any 21st century psychotherapist that wants to be true to self and the profession. Sincerely best book ever ❤. From inner self to executive functioning as a psychotherapist to trauma evaluation and phone/social media addiction of clients and therapists.
The book is so loaded. Louis Cozolino should please continue to write so new and upcoming therapists will continue to learn from people like you with so much wealth of knowledge. I am so hoping a third one in this series will come out soon.
Thank you for sharing this wealth of knowledge in the two books so far.

Sequel to my favourite book on therapy

The Making of a Therapist is a book I highly recommend. Reading it was like reliving the first 10 years of my therapy career, Lou Cozolino manages to sum up most of the hard lessons I learnt through experience and mistakes in that easy to read/listen to primer.
The Development of a Therapist takes it a step further, it develops a number of ideas further, digs a deeper and casts the net wider. A fitting follow up.
I enjoyed the later chapter on the internet, it raised a few ideas and angles I hadn’t thought of before, pointed out research I have yet to read, though I was a little disappointed it didn’t dig deeper into the pros and cons of online therapy, but now we have COVID-19 and the rules have changed anyway. The only section of the book I felt was really lacking was the one on Attachment Based Parenting. As someone with a strong interest in Attachment Theory, like Cozolino I have concerns about Attachment Based Parenting, which it could be said takes some pretty big liberties with Attachment Theory and arguably twists the ideas of Attachment into unboundaried permissiveness. I was hoping this section would provide evidence for my own skepticism about this style of parenting, but that section, unlike most of his work, seems to be more opinion than his typical research-based reasoning. These however would be my only criticisms of this book, and they are small ones.
The narrator is the same from The Making of, despite the accent I really enjoyed his reading - it feels like he is reading his own material, the emphases and delivery seems spot on and it is consistently engaging.

Virtual Awareness

Exceptional information about consumer based competencies in ethical investments involving higher educations. A worthy example of weighing costs and benefits of living.

I am going to listen again and take notes. I bought a hard copy for my therapist. It’s very well written!

Every book Cozolino makes is great.

I’m a new therapist and this one reminded of the ideas I need to incorporate with my new clients. It also added a ton of new research based ideas. I’m a super fan now.

Great for new and seasoned therapists alike!

I love Cozolino's ability to marry neuroscience and psychotherapy without reducing us to simplebrainchemicals

"Awful, Distracting Voice "

The content is likely decent and insightful, but the voice for narration is awful and distracting. Whose idea was that?!
