What do I say? : the therapist's guide to answering client questions

Linda N. Edelstein and Charles A. Waehler

Therapists are used to asking questions, not answering them. What Do I Say? shows how client questions-no matter how difficult or uncomfortable-can be used to support the therapeutic process rather than derail the therapist-client relationship. Jargon-free and conversational in tone, this book provides guidance on how to answer questions on such hot-button topics as sex, religion, money, disclosing personal information, and setting boundaries. Counselors and other mental health professionals will find essential guidance from the authors' examples drawn from their own lives and work.
