Writing a book: My life as a psychologist

Posted on Updated on

This year I have been working on my very own book. it will be a collection of the blog posts that I`ve written so far, and I need your help to choose which posts I shall include or not. You can either contact me with recommendations (forfreepsychology@gmail.com) or comment on this post. I also need someone to proof read the book after it`s done, and will pay the person willing to do so. Let me know if you are interested!

      Thank you! Any thoughts about what I should include?

        Depends on the overall theme of the book. Perhaps a summary of some of the successful cases you handled, the way you helped them to recover through your therapy and your observations how to retain one’s mental balance in our times, especially in view of the internet addiction?

        That was a good idea! I thought about starting with my own story, with posts from the “here and now” interwoven with my narrative. I could also write about treatment, especially in more general terms to be sure I don`t write anything that can identify clients. But many of them have much in common, so I can still write about how I work with different issues, focussing on issues we all can have, and giving practical advice how to handle them.

        Yes, clients’ privacy can and must be protected. Some interesting books I had come across pertained to past and future regression therapies, by Dr Brian L Weiss who, I thought, had struck the right note!

        Thank you for the recommendation! I try to read everything I can from therapists, and have some Authors I really love, like Yalom and Viktor Frankl. I can also recommend “the shrink rap” and “falling into the fire”

    The most recent posts I particularly liked were ‘sound of knocking on hell’s door’, ‘Epistemic trust’ and ‘DID’.

      Thank you! I want the book to be a mix of my password protected posts and also the best posts about trauma and treatment.

        I don’t know if I’ve ever seen the protected posts.

    Hello

    I have to disagree with Cat’s comment above, please don’t include any of your DID posts in your planned book as they’re terribly inaccurate. Aside from all the posts you reblogged from my blog (without permission), of course, they’re accurate but belong to me.

      I am sorry if I haven`t posted anything you like. I don`t understand everything about wordpress, but thought people got a notification when you reblog something. If you like, I can delete those posts. I would also like to know about inaccuracies, as I want posts to be as accurate as possible. Thank you for the comment!
