What others say

In Pluralism in Psychotherapy Keith Tudor and colleagues  examin[e] the inner core of psychotherapy  what is it? how does it work? who gets to practice it? and, most importantly, who gets to benefit from it? This volume examines an uncomfortable space  and we all need to examine our notions of psychotherapy by learning from the experience of the psychotherapy profession in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Bruce Wampold, Professor of Counseling Psychology and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of WisconsinMadison, USA, and author of The Great Psychotherapy Debate

This is a superb book. It offers rich, nuanced, deepening layers of complexity, in a sophisticated weaving together of politics, history, law, neuroscience, ethics, culture, society, environment and the lived experiences of psychotherapists. Contributors write with personal/political passion and analytical rigour, and dialogue with sensitivity and compassion. [the] close readings of the post-regulation landscape in Aotearoa New Zealand [are] absolutely compelling, but the debates in Pluralism in Psychotherapy about the contemporary nature/meanings of psychotherapy are applicable everywhere. This is an important book, for its academic insights  and as a call for psychotherapists to think more politically.
