Irvin D. YalomÕs '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 edition - updated to reflect the American Psychiatric AssociationÕs 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.
