Description of Content: The hallmarks of the conjunctive process, which unite therapist and patient, are struggle and discovery. Together, they hope to learn what the patient actually needs at each point in treatment. Discovery in this context is of a way of being, an entirely new subjective experience created together with the other person, one which may be startling, whether upsetting or reassuring. The author accords legitimacy to the therapist's needs and biases as inevitable constituents of an interpersonally alive therapy experience, rather than analyzing them away, as has been traditional in dynamic therapy. The book describes an evolving intimacy, each partner learning the other's biases and failings and having a role in addressing them.
