Overview
Critical Issues in Psychotherapy examines new and existing models in psychotherapy and presents them in an accessible manner to the practitioner in training through illustrative therapy cases and practitioner commentaries. There are many new models that have emerged in psychotherapy in recent years; however; they have not often been made accessible to front line practitioners. This volume is key in that it translates scholarly findings about established and new approaches into relevant therapeutic implications.This book is an excellent text for advanced courses in psychotherapy and counselling practice and theory. Practitioners who want to acquaint themselves or re-evaluate many of the methods in psychotherapy will also find this valuable.
