Description

This book is about how to maintain an aliveness to the possibilities in therapy and practice and how to challenge ideas of orthodoxy in theory and methodologies that can become stale or followed like religions. The central metaphor is the performance of practice emphasized in the spoken word and expressed in all its non-verbal complexity. How we, as practitioners, use every aspect of our being to communicate with the other in practice, how we shape and mould our words through gesture and other non-verbal actions in response to the gestures and words of others in a continually recursive process.
