Description
Current models of therapy emphasize expertise, testing, control, and technique. Clients are seen as people with defects that need to be diagnosed, fixed, or cured. In The Beautiful Risk thirty-year psychotherapist Dr. Jim Olthuis presents a new relational "being-with" approach to therapy that emphasizes connecting with, caring for, and suffering with clients. In this new model, clients are seen as people with their own particular struggles with wholeness and integrity, with rejection and brokenness.

The Beautiful Risk helps both professional therapists and serious lay counselors to develop a new psychology of love and transformation that promises to help them join clients on their journeys to richer and more faithful lives. It is not a recipe book filled with tips and hints for more successful living. It does not offer another technique or more rules. What it does do is --
-- Offer a new way of doing therapy that moves the focus from cure to care, from control to connection, from experts to partners, from power-over to power-with, from mastery to love.
-- Remind you that counseling is not something that counselors do to others, but a process in which they participate and facilitate in the hope that God brings the healing.

Using powerful illustrations of the effectiveness of this new relational therapy, Dr. Olthuis invites all therapists to take what he calls "the beautiful risk", to move out of their comfort zones and to join the healing dance between psychotherapist and client.
