How Does That Make You Feel?

True Confessions from Both Sides of the Therapy Couch

By Sherry Amatenstein

$17.00 USD, Trade Paper Original, September 2016

How Does That Make You Feel? obliterates the boundaries between the shrink and the one being shrunk with unabashedly candid writers breaking confidentiality and telling all about their experiences in therapy.

This revelatory, no-punches-pulled book brings to light both sides of the “relationship” between therapist and client—a bond that can feel pure and profound, even if it is, at times, illusory.

Contributors include an array of essayists, authors, TV/film writers and therapists, including Sherry Amatenstein, Laura Bogart, Margaret Crawford, Patti Davis, Megan Devine, Beverly Donofrio, Janice Eidus, Estelle Erasmus, Juli Fraga, Nina Gaby, Mindy Greenstein, Jenine Holmes, Diane Josefowicz, Jean Kim, Amy Klein, Binnie Klein, Anna March, Allison McCarthy, Kurt Nemes, Dennis Palumbo, Molly Peacock, Pamela Rafalow Grossman, Charlie Rubin, Jonathan Schiff, Barbara Schoichet, Adam Sexton, Susan Shapiro, Beth Sloan, Elisabeth Turner, Kate Walter, Priscilla Warner, Linda Yellin, Royal Young, and Jessica Zucker.
