Timely and accessible, CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES is the ideal resource that helps students learn, compare, and apply the major systems of psychotherapy in a way that will be meaningful in the classroom and in their own practice. Used in top counseling, psychology, and social work programs, the text features an outstanding group of contributors, each of whom is either an originator or a leading proponent of one of the systems. Each contributor presents the basic principles of the system in a clear and straightforward manner, discussing it in the context of the other systems. Each theory chapter includes a case example that guides students through the problem, evaluation, treatment, and follow-up process. Accompanying CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES is CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, each case demonstrates the basic techniques and methods of the theory being illustrated. This edition retains classic case studies by Harold Mosak, Carl Rogers, Albert Ellis, Arnold Lazarus, and Peggy Papp.
