The Good Story: Exchanges on truth, fiction and psychotherapy

This is a fascinating polemic on the power of story telling in fiction and in psychotherapy and the inter-relation of the two disciplines.  That this is essentially a conversation between two heavyweights in the fields of, respectively, fiction writing and psychotherapy, lends their joint testimony extra potency and rigour.  This is a powerful piece of writing that feels like it has been waiting in the margins of both fiction and psychotherapeutic literature for a long time to be brought to life.
