#BookReview WTF Moments In Psychotherapy: My 30 Years Of Practice Confronting The GODS of Absurdity, Fables, Fibs, Whoppers & Bullsh-t by Jere Parker

Featured imageFeatured imageWTF Moments In Psychotherapy: My 30 Years Of Practice Confronting The GODS of Absurdity, Fables, Fibs, Whoppers & Bullsh-t by Jere Parker is a short humorous read. Parker works as an addictions counselor. The book is just a few stories of the weird things and people he encounters in his line of work.

First of all I know you are not supposed to judge a book by its cover but the cover on this book is funny. That is actually what drew me to want to read this book. The stories are interesting and funny, such as what Joe the entertainer showers the room with when staff would enter it. The way Parker retells these stories is in a sarcastically but brutally honest way. At the beginning of most of the chapters, Parker tells the definition of his terminology. This is to insure the reader gets a clearer picture of what is actually going on in the story.

Overall the book is funny but I think Parker explains some things a little too much at times. This book might be good for anyone in the medical field that can use a smile. I for one hope I never end up a story in a book like this.

I gave this book 3 stars and have posted reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.
