I'll look at the book - I'm always looking for other perspectives.
I do wonder, though, if some of these writers have either had a bad experience or no experience with therapy, or if it is a marketing "thing" to place their technique or theory away from psychotherapy. Almost like a "you can heal yourself - don't spend any money except on this!" kind of a banner. I don't know.
What I also have been thinking about is how everyone who writes - who truly falls in love with writing and sees writing as essential, writes about writing. I do it - I write...and then I write about writing. And there are a million books and articles about the value, joy and healing of writing. A book I read a long time ago was "Writers on Therapy" - which a very interesting exercise to read and then try to dublicate.
Like I don't have enough other things to do. :)
