The Method of Levels:
How to do Psychotherapy Without Getting in the Way

Customer Review posted at

5.0 out of 5 starsA 'must read' for psychotherapists seeking to improve their effectiveness, July 30, 2008

In this provocative yet inspirational book Dr Timothy Carey presents a new point of view regarding the practice of helping people overcome their psychological problems.
     In this method of psychotherapy(MOL), based on a scientific explanation of human behaviour(PCT), the author highlights that it is the clients who get themselves better when receiving help for their psychological distress and shows the therapist how to facilitate and not get in the way of this process.
This is ground-breaking material which challenges current widespread beliefs about psychological problems and so-called mental illness and their current treatment.
     It is easy reading and I found the author's matter of fact and enthusiastic style quite delightful.
     I for one share Dr Carey's excitement that "With PCT as its bedrock, psychology might well become the most noble science of all."
