`This book will be of interest to anyone who has ever carried out therapy. Sooner or later all therapists will encounter setbacks, ranging from attempted suicide by a client, to pre-mature termination by a cross and disappointed client... Leiper's book is an intelligent discussion of the types of problems that may be faced, and a sensible set of suggestions for recognising and resolving them. This book is recommended reading for both qualified therapists and therapists in training, for all of whom it maybe both reassuring and helpful' - Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy `In a nutshell, this elegantly written book contains a wealth of useful professional experience for readers to draw on, a liberal sprinkling of diagrams and tables (which helps to make it a useful teaching tool) and an interesting list of references' - Jo King, Clinical Psychology `This fascinating, thorough and enjoyable book is not only readable, but is technically valuable. It contains a vast amount of thought-provoking material which I consider to be an invaluable resource for health care professionals from diverse orientations who work directly or indirectly with people struggling to manoeuvre in therapy and to develop the self' - Liz Gordon, The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy
