“One of the most frustrating situations in psychotherapy is what to do when you don’t know what to do. Jon Winder’s Getting Unstuck, which is based on his 40 years of experience, guides the reader through techniques, interventions, and perspectives that ensure you will build your professional and personal confidence so you will likely never get stuck again.” -Bill O’Hanlon, author of Change 101 and Do One Thing Different
Unstuck will guide you through tough therapeutic dilemmas and help your clients on the way! No matter what your theoretical approach or level of experience, this book will improve your clinical confidence and professional expertise. Highly readable and filled with heart.

I love it. Every therapist has faced those moments of not knowing how to proceed with a client whose problems or personality seem daunting. Winder, from mny years of counseling experience, has put together a wonderful compendium of stories and strategies for dealing with just these situations. In addition to a trove of practical advice, his book is full of compassion, heart and wisdom from a seasoned counselor– a great reference book for any therapist’s bookshelf. — Joe Kort, Ph.D., CST, author
