In this controversial book, psychologists Barry Duncan and Scott Miller, cofounders of the Institute for the Study of Therapeutic Change, challenge the traditional focus on diagnosis, silver bullet techniques, and magic pills, exposing them as empirically bankrupt practices that only diminish the role of clients and hasten therapy s extinction. Instead, they advocate for the long ignored but most crucial factor in therapeutic success the innate resources of the client. Based on extensive clinical research and case studies, The Heroic Client not only shows how to harness the client s powers of regeneration to make therapy effective, but also how to enlist the client as a partner to make therapy accountable. The Heroic Client inspires therapists to boldly rewrite the drama of therapy, recast clients in their rightful role as heroes and heroines of the therapeutic stage, and legitimize their services to third party payers without the compromises of the medical model.
