Linda Berman explores the importance of photographs in our lives, highlighting the hidden messages behind the images. She describes different ways of using photographs in therapy and shows how by triggering memory and emotion and revealing family patterns they can be used to help the patient. Detailed case studies, with appropriate illustrations, show how photographs can be used with individuals, couples and groups, and demonstrate how useful photographs can be in many different therapeutic settings.
