Dr Spinelli has written an extremely thought-provoking and enlightening analysis of the dangers inherent in most of the current therapies. His primary concern is the potential that exists for client abuse, not just sexual or emotional maltreatment but, more importantly, misuse of the power a therapist has within the therapeutic encounter. Spinelli eruditely - elaborates on the importance of the therapeutic relationship and how working within a descriptively focused encounter can help ensure that interpretations are made within the client's own experience and not imposed from outside. Alison Strasser, Psychotherapy in Australia [Ernesto Spinelli's] argument is that theory-led approaches - tend to reinforce the mystique of therapy and increase the likelihood of therapists misusing their power and of - clients having a negative experience of therapy. As an alternative, he puts forward and existential-phenomenological model of therapy, which requires that the therpist attempts to bracket out his or her biases, assumptions, and so on - and try to enter the patient's own meaning world in order to enhance their self-clarification, challenging the person, as it were, from within.
