The true story of Dibs told by Virginia M. Axline is a classic in counselling which touched me quite profoundly. The necessary qualities inherent to a relationship for it to be ‘therapeutic’ are here elegantly illustrated through a poignant story of a young but bright child. At the same time, the book offers a quick glance at what other psychotherapists found most clinically significant in what sometimes is happening within some families.
