Jag. who has the eaperieoos of
treating patients or who Las been a
patient himself. This includes psychiatrists, clinical psychologists+
social workers, doctors. and ~s~y
others with different orientations
religious, vocational, industrial,
educational. recreational, and rehabilitative. Students of bean
behaviour and society should find
material here which will help them
to help others. It lays stress upon
wellness. It attempts to give sons
notion of what can be dane to increase the effectiveness of therm,
py, and to point out some of the
pitfalls that jeopardize that effort.
"boe of the main lines of approach is to bring out the unconscious attitudes of the therapists.
There is discussion of why people
decide to become therepis s. and
how their attitudes affect their
work. An interesting point issued.
that people should be social theretists. i.e.. Dianeticists, scienologists, or west have you before
taking formal training. This ezper
Janos will weed out the sincere
from the greedy, and help to soften
the harshness and flatness of the
professionals. who .jumped into
processing' before they knew what
they were ttting into. No one can
be successful as a therapist unless
he has felt the need to be a patient. and has received some measure of help. The additional training and experience be hains will
serve to deepen his understanding
of himself and his fellows. The
point is also made that theme+
with any one 'auditor' should be
fairly short and have an abrupt
termination. at the choosing of the
'preclear'. Che advantage among
many is that the ding preclear
can expose his auditor's mistakes.
and so the auditor has a chance to
grow also, if he has the maturity
to profit from his mistakes. If he
is not mature enough to change his
methods. he needs more treatment
"There is also discussion an the
fantasy or 'core! stage of processing, anxiety, relationships with
the preclear's family, and transference. Transference seems to be
an essential part of the process.
I would say definitely that the
troubles experienced in Phoenix
were almost entirely due to mishandled transference, and hence
were essential for the growth of
all concerned. Sciertolo ists must
