The impaired therapist and the value of therapist failure

This chapter and the two that come after it will follow the same format. I will present a discussion of issues related to the chapter title, informed by relevant literature and research studies, and present a number of my own perspectives with examples drawn from practice. Each chapter will then present a selection of data from a survey into unorthodox practice and the use of self carried out with trained and experienced counsellors and psychotherapists.
