An Introduction to the Psychotherapies
Oxford University Press, 1986 - Psychology - 285 pages
Thoroughly revised and updated, the new edition of this highly popular introduction features two new chapters, one on brief, focal psychotherapy and another on child therapy. As in the first edition, the contributors each take a particular form of psychotherapy and describe its goals, techniques, and applications, using a down-to-earth approach that blends theory with practical aspects. From reviews of the first edition: "An excellent book....Could not be done better in a brief presentation."--American Journal of Psychiatry. "A smoothly edited and technically well-produced synopsis of psychotherapeutic techniques....Useful for senior medical students and junior residents seeking a rapid overview."--Hospital Community Psychiatry.
