The Snake in the Clinic: Psychotherapy’s Role in Medicine and Healing by Guy Dargert

One of the most elegant, powerful, and accessible books on psychotherapy that I have read.

Dargert recognises that the psychotherapist’s job is to tend to the symptom rather than to eradicate it. It is a breath of fresh air in a publishing world currently awash with empty self-help manuals. I thoroughly recommend this book not only to specialist professionals in healthcare or psychotherapy, but also as general reading to fire the imagination of the public.

In his fascinating book Dargert demonstrates how science supports the conclusion that imagination has profound physical effects toward good or ill health. It will help physician and patient, nurse and psychotherapist and anyone who can sense that illness and mystery are siblings.

This excellent book delivers a state of the art account of the complexities of psychotherapy practice in the twenty-first century. It should be required reading for all professionals involved in the health field.
