The lives of the Wister Family are elaborated through a series of articles, papers, photographs and other research.
Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works is a landmark database that, when complete, will contain more than 2,000 transcripts of actual therapy sessions, 40,000 pages of first-person accounts, and 25,000 pages of major reference works. There will be diaries, letters, autobiographies, oral histories, and personal memoirs along with the full text of the sessions themselves. All accounts are non-fiction, delivered in the first person and, where possible, contemporaneous.
The database opens a world of primary sources for therapists, clients, and students to explore and analyze. New methods of research in fields as diverse as anthropology, linguistics, and English literature are now possible.
Personal accounts by clients and records of their therapy experiences are not widely available, leaving researchers with only periodical articles and textbooks. But the journal and text materials present only case studies, which focus on proving a hypothesis or teaching a particular disorder, rarely offering the candid voice of the client. Counseling and Psychotherapy Transcripts, Client Narratives, and Reference Works fills the gap at last, bringing the value of primary narratives to scholars and practicing therapists alike.
