"This is my new book,
published by Palgrave Mcmillan in London.
It is about doing family therapy."
First and foremost I'm a therapist, working with families.
Furthermore, I’m a full professor in Clinical Psychology at the Institute for Family and Sexuality Studies, Faculty of Medicine, University of Leuven, Belgium.
I'm responsible for Context – Centre of Marital and Family Therapy at UPC KU Leuven.
My primary research interests focus is on the family therapeutic process.
I'm especially interested in the therapist's inner conversation and in silences in families.
I'm a father. And a son.
And there's a woman that I love very much.
She's my lover and my best friend.
"This is an excellent exploration of a dialogical process that provides fresh opportunities to engage with ideas and methods from systemic, narrative and related approaches to family therapy. In Therapy Together is a clearly written and readily absorbing account of the author’s dialogical orientation as a therapist which places therapy first and foremost as a human encounter full of creative possibilities." - Jim Wilson
“This is a powerful illustration of the importance of working with families in severe crisis. Peter Rober expertly guides the reader through the emerging field of dialogical practice and builds bridges with more traditional systemic family therapy. This is a ground-breaking book in which the author demonstrates his brilliance as a clinician and excellence as a researcher.” - Jaakko Seikkula
