Reviews

"""No Bullshit Therapy: How To Engage People Who Don’t Want to Work with You is excellent. Enjoyable to read, full of good ideas and compelling examples, it is a book our profession and clients need. It will help you to connect and be effective with a range of clients, especially those who are often described as ‘resistant' and difficult to work with. Highly recommended!"" Michael F. Hoyt, Ph.D (USA). Author of Brief Therapy and Beyond: Stories, Language, Love, Hope, and Time and Brief Therapy Conversations: Exploring Efficient Intervention in Psychotherapy (with Flavio Cannistrà). "" This book is not just for therapists trying to work with clients who hate the idea of therapy. It is for all of us who have ever avoided that difficult conversation we know we should have. Jeff Young guides us through the philosophy and practice of NBT, with detailed client transcripts, all exuding his own particular combination of warmth and honesty."" Pam Rycroft, MPsych. (Australia). Co-editor of Single-Session Thinking and Practice in Global, Cultural, and Familial Contexts: Expanding Applications. ""Jeff Young's work on 'No Bullshit Therapy' is, in my view, one of the most important developments in the field of therapy since Single-Session Therapy came onto the scene towards the end of the last century. In fact, the combination of these developments increases the potency of both. Mandatory reading if you have to work with mandated clients...and if you don't"". Windy Dryden, Ph.D (UK). Emeritus Professor of Psychotherapeutic Studies, Goldsmiths University of London"
