Introducing How to Find a Good TherapistOne of the common questions we receive here at Psych Central is, “You always talk about the importance of finding a good therapist in order to be successful in psychotherapy; so how do I go about doing that?” Over the years, I’ve written an article or two about this topic. Now I’m pleased to present something better — a complete, free online e-book to finding a good therapist.

How to Find a Good Therapist is a simple how-to guide written by Ben Butina. Ben Butina is a therapist and trainer, and is the executive director of Westmoreland Marriage. You can learn more about this book and how to order bulk paper or e-book copies of at the book’s website, www.howtofindagoodtherapist.com.

Psychotherapy is often a process shrouded in some mystery. How does one go about making decisions about this treatment process that will mostly likely result in personal success? How does one even get started, when there are so many different choices of types of therapies and types of professionals that practice psychotherapy? It can be quite overwhelming.

The book covers, in a succinct and easy-to-digest format, the different kinds of therapy, payment, the professions that practice psychotherapy, the importance of a psychotherapist’s experience, setting priorities, interviewing and making a selection decision. I encourage you to check it out and if you find it helpful, let others know about this great new online free resource (through the share options on this post).
