Wartenweiler Frank: “Provozieren erwünscht … aber bitte mit Feingefühl”, Junfermann Verlag, Paderborn 2003
"First a method is shown, which allows therapists to develop from any statement of a client systematically provocative interventions, which will fit exactly to the individual situation of the client. Then the application of the method is demonstrated in many examples of therapeutic work with families, parents and children."
" ... When I first trained with Frank Farrelly I was totally shocked at the effectiveness of Frank's Provocative Therapy. Frank is a complete "one off", a truly innovative master communicator who has created a unique therapeutic approach that is both elegant and highly effective. Even more extraordinary is the fact that Frank's work actually predates the original work of Dr Bandler and John Grinder" Nick Kemp - NLP Trainer - www.nickkemp.com
"Frank is a solid co-therapist -- not a carbon copy. His core of lovingness is easily apparent and available. . . He is also a wizard at destroying the meta-communicating bacterium 'why'. A body free of this bug may never be the same again. You've read Groddeck, Eichorn, Redl, Laing, Kopp. . .Read Farrelly!" --Carl A. Whitaker, M.D., Family Process.
" . . .your demonstrations of therapy. . .were really great. I liked your style enormously. All of your expressions of yourself while here were a kind of enlarging and expanding experience, combined with a total bouyancy we all need. Meeting you was the best therapeutic expereince I've had in a long time." --O. Spurgeon English, M.D., Temple University Psychiatry Dept., Philadelphia, PA .
"Frank Farrelly. . .is a really exquisite example of requisite variety." -- Richard Bandler and John Grinder, Frogs Into Princes.
"Frank Farrelly. . .must be thought of with respect (perhaps even delight?) by his clients who have so far played the game of therapy with their therapists, but, I am afraid, also a shocking example for those therapists who, in Laing's words, 'are playing at not playing a game'." -- Paul Watzlawick, Ph.D., Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, CA .
"Frank Farrelly? Impertinent, but penetratingly pertinent." -- Arthur M. Bodin, Ph.D., Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, CA .
