Healing Through Meeting

Martin Buber's Conversational Approach to Psychotherapy

Healing Through Meeting explains Martin Buber's ideas in simple terms and shows how they can offer a philosophical and ethical framework within which to hold a therapeutic conversation. A collection of therapeutic stories, based on actual case studies, is included which therapists can share with their clients. Through the telling of stories, therapists can highlight specific facets of human functioning and interaction. Clients can gain insight into their problems and so make choices about their future direction.
John Gunzburg shares his skills in composing therapeutic stories and encourages therapists to formulate their own stories out of their and their clients' experiences. In so doing, the wisdom that is to be found within the therapy room can be shared.
