I have lots of case studies, any I can get my hands on even if they're on topics that don't appeal. Those are sort of fiction, I guess.
But for the most part my books are nonfiction and I collect fictional representations in movies and TV. Like the episode of The Nanny where Fran is so in awe of her therapist until she sees him digging in his nose with his finger at a movie, and is totally disillusioned. Before she sees that, she wonders whether if she greets him and if he asks her how she's doing and she answers fine, if he'll charge her.
I must be one of the few who didn't like "What About Bob?" Not sure if it's my anxiety about people embarassing themselves on screen or if it just cuts too close to home.
But I'll look through my library for fiction once I get those new shelves up in my closet. I'm devoting a whole five shelf bookshelf to the books I don't want in the family library - my therapy books. :) And magazines. Somehow I managed to subscribe to a clinician's magazine.
