Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed by Jerome Frank as “the best book that exists on the subject, today and for the foreseeable future,” Irvin D. Yaloms The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy has long been the standard text in its field. Indeed, in a survey reported in the American Journal of Psychiatry, it was cited as one of the ten most influential psychiatry publications of the past decade, and it was one of the very few judged to be of “seminal or lasting value.”In this completely revised and expanded fourth edition—updated to reflect the American Psychiatric Associations latest diagnostic manual, the DSM-IV—Dr. Yalom presents the most recent developments in the field, drawing on nearly a decade of new research as well as his own broad clinical wisdom and experience. This edition features new sections on combining individual and group therapy, the latest information about brief group therapy, and how to modify group work to deal with the newly emerging homogeneous focal groups (including survivor groups), as well as updated references and new clinical vignettes drawn from the authors recent practice.Throughout, Dr. Yalom has updated the style and content of the chapters, while retaining valid research and clinical observations. Illustrating the text are vivid cases from nearly two thousand group sessions that he has led over the past decade.The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy is an informative text that is at once scholarly and lively. This new edition is the most up-to-date, incisive, and comprehensive text on group therapy available today.

Book News Annotation:

This fourth edition is revised to reflect the changes in DSM-IV and features new sections on combining individual and group therapy, and brief group therapy, as well as new clinical vignettes.
