Each nugget focuses on a different idea or looks through a different lens or at a different layer. My personal response to the book was one of underwhelm!
While on the one hand it is an impressive condensation of the material, the corollary is that there is little space for digestion, or indeed for a more deep and open-ended look at the questions that arise when you are trying to blend the work of different writers each with their own perspective and lexicon. This would perhaps not be a problem were it not for the power differential between the group making the diagnosis and the group being diagnosed. Can we reconcile notions of treatment with an I-Thou encounter, with its necessary absence of an agenda?
That we do it is discussed on p but not the how of it, or whether there is an alternative. How do we ethically pay attention to contemporary research in the field while holding the position that each client-therapist encounter is unique and co-created? Certainly the link between the hypothesised causative mechanism and the outcome is not necessarily proven.
Can we orientate ourselves towards well-being, and perhaps put more effort into researching whether the work that a given therapist is doing with a given client is satisfying rather than research that tries to prove which form of therapy should be practiced?
These questions may not have answers but I believe that these and questions like them need to be struggled with. While I have my ideas about their absence — to do with space and series style and possibly political correctness — without them the book feels limited and seems to deliver a mixed message.
