Wedding and Corsini's CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY offers classic and contemporary cases that bring concepts to life for your students. The Fifth Edition of this popular casebook maintains its parallel structure with Corsini and Wedding's CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES. All cases are selected on the basis of intrinsic interest, clarity of presentation, and the extent to which each case demonstrates the basic techniques and methods of the theory being illustrated. The Fifth Edition retains classic case studies by L. Bryce Boyer, Barbara Sullivan, Harold Mosak, Carl Rogers, Albert Ellis, Arnold Lazarus, and Peggy Papp. At the same time the authors include compelling new cases that illustrate the clinical applications of psychodrama and experiential psychotherapy.

About the Author
Danny Wedding was trained as a clinical psychologist at the University of Hawaii and the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He later completed two years working for the US Congress, first in the Senate and later in the House of Representatives. Danny joined the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine in 1991 as Director of the Missouri Institute of Mental Health (MIMH), a university research and policy center serving the mental health community in Missouri. Danny's research interests include psychotherapy, international health, mental health policy, and the portrayal of mental illness and addictions in films. With the assistance of colleagues, he has written or edited ten books including CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, BEHAVIOR AND MEDICINE, THE NEUROPSYCHOLOGY HANDBOOK, SCREENING FOR BRAIN IMPAIRMENT and MOVIES AND MENTAL ILLNESS. Danny is the Editor-Elect for CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY: APA REVIEW OF BOOKS, and he currently serves on the APA Council of Representatives and the Board of the Society of Clinical Psychology.Raymond Corsini's training was diverse -- He received a BA and MA at the City College of New York, then did his doctoral training at Syracuse University, Cornell University, University of California, University of Wisconsin (all during the time of his work as a prison psychologist), and finally obtained the Ph.D. at age 41 at the University of Chicago under Carl Rogers. He met and interacted with J.L. Moreno, Fritz Perls, Victor Frankl, and Albert Ellis among others, but his main teacher was Rudolf Dreikurs, an Adlerian. He had three separate careers: as a prison psychologist for fifteen years, then an industrial psychologist for ten years, and finally in private practice of psychotherapy and counseling for thirty years. Usually in the summers he taught courses at over a dozen universities and full time at the University of Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of California at Berkeley. He has published over 60 books under 43 titles, including four encyclopedias and the most complete dictionary of psychology, and has written or edited eighteen books in counseling or psychotherapy.
