The Making of a Therapist is such a book! Upon completing the book this afternoon, I feel I want to write Louis Cozolino a personal letter of thanks.

I have been providing counseling services on and off throughout my career as a social Wow! I have been providing counseling services on and off throughout my career as a social worker. Social workers perform many tasks and counseling services are often part of the job in some capacity.

Several months ago, after realizing that the counseling part of social work was what I enjoyed most about my job, I had made the decision to start the process in obtaining my LCSW. I am currently working as a therapist and enjoy it immensely. I picked up this book because It had good reviews and I was searching for a more personal viewpoint on what it really means to be a therapist. Up until this point, all of the counseling books I have purchased are based on theories, techniques and new schools of thought in the area of psychotherapy.

The Making of a Therapist filled a void of unanswered questions for me. I particularly enjoyed and grew from the chapter on counter-transference. Although I have studied this phenomenon and have tried to be self aware, I feel I now have a deeper understanding of counter-transference.

At times while reading this book, I felt Dr. Cozolino was "my" own personal therapist and mentor at the same time. He also led me down a path of self exploration that I had not even considered.

It is packed with down-to-earth advice, that was helpful before even beginning my classes. I know that this book will be much-used into my career! Some of his advice will be useful as I embark on helping others while still helping myself.

His sections on As an aspiring graduate student in mental health counseling, I picked this book up and eagerly read it. His sections on "walking the talk" and "countertransference" were excellent. I would highly recommend this book! It was validating and reassuring to see some of the issues I struggle with as a therapist mentioned by the author as part of the normal experiences therapists go through, including the author himself.

I find it humbling that he shared some of the Another accurate name for this book could be "The Good-Enough Therapist. I find it humbling that he shared some of the inevitable mistakes that he did throughout his journey, and how he used them as learning opportunities. A part I know I will always remember and it made me laugh out loud was when Cozilono was sitting with a client one time, and then there was an earthquake, so Cozilono sat their quietly and asked the client "How does this make you feel?
