GUIDE ME: Solo Dramatic Research Into Becoming a Therapist (2009)
This is the journey of a young man becoming a therapist: picking himself up from the dark hole of anxiety and depression to discover what it really means to be both a powerful client and an effective and humble therapist/guide.
David's exploration climaxed in a Self-Revelatory Performance, documented here in script form. Qualitative feedback was also gathered from an audience of professional peers and is revealed in synthesized form. This book is a document of unique academic and arts-based research. It is also an inspiring testament of the incredibly creative and life changing journey it can take to become a therapist who is able to fully serve others.
