This ground breaking volume discusses the latest wave in psychodynamic psychotherapy. It presents a historical view of the last two decades of therapy where the field has evolved from a focus on object relations theory to relational therapy…. This book is thought provoking on many levels and will likely be a valuable source for both trainees and seasoned therapists.
— New England Psychologist
“Reading this volume will enhance your therapeutic efforts regardless of your preferred approach. Donovan, Osborn, and Rice’s collaboration resulting in this landmark work, Paraverbal Communication in Psychotherapy, offers us deep insight into the often-ignored realm of what transpires nonverbally in healing relationships. This represents a must-read for beginning and seasoned psychotherapists.”
— Jeffrey J. Magnavita, PhD, ABPP, author of Unifying Psychotherapy: Principles, Methods, and Evidence from Clinical Science
“In this creative and forward-looking volume, Donovan, Osborn, and Rice make a persuasive case for the important role of paraverbal communication in psychotherapy. Be it posture, tone, facial expression or emotions, these extra-verbal ways by which therapist and client or members of a couple relate to each other receive the theoretical, clinical, and research attention they merit. Therapists of all theoretical persuasions will learn helpful new ways to understand and relate to their clients through the fascinating, often verbatim case studies presented. I recommend this gem of a book most enthusiastically.”
