Who is Frank Farrelly?
Frank Farrelly has gained international recognition as a profoundly gifted therapist. He is the author of several publications including Provocative Therapy (with Jeff Brandsma). He has presented numerous workshops, seminars, and demonstrations of his work for professional audiences throughout the United States, Europe and Australasia. His expertise in working with severely disturbed clients makes him an especially interesting and important teacher.
Provocative Therapy was developed in an inpatient ward as Farrelly, dissatisfied with his effectiveness as a therapist, began to explore new procedures for promoting significant, resilient change in chronic and recalcitrant patients. He worked in this institutional setting for 17 years, continuing to develop and refine his techniques.
Frank holds a Masters Degree in Social Work from Catholic University and is a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers. For many years he was a clinical professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Social Work and an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin Medical School.
This brilliant therapist was described by one of his clients as "The kindest, most understanding man I have ever met in my whole life, wrapped up in the biggest son of a bitch I have ever met."
