Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In an age when actual psychotherapeutic practice is predominantly eclectic, most psychotherapy textbooks are outdated and impractically bound in theoretical pigeon holes. incorporates into a single source the latest advances in the field and focuses on psychotherapy's core processes--rather than ideologies--to provide a comprehensive and imminently pragmatic textbook for learning integrative counseling and psychotherapy. The central lessons of this book are framed on one side by a theoretical overview in which essential therapeutic concepts and techniques are synthesized, and on the other side by a detailed review of frequently encountered concerns such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, couple/marital issues, and psychopharmacology.

In , students have a textbook that seamlessly connects their classroom experience with their actual work with clients, preparing them to be effective clinicians.
