Product Description


"CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, Seventh Edition makes an outstanding contribution to understanding major approaches to psychotherapy. It is the only textbook containing chapters written either on their own or with a collaborator by many of the approaches' originators: namely, Aaron Beck, Albert Ellis, Carl Rogers, Arnold Lazarus, Rollo May and Irvin Yalom. In addition other therapeutic approaches are presented by leading exponents. Each chapter contains a thoughtful and thorough presentation of the approach's theory and practice, including a case presentation. The book is a genuinely authoritative source and I recommend it most highly." "Any clinician, established or aspiring, will find that this volume significantly expands his or her repertoire of possible pathways to clinical understanding and intervention. Whether one is a devotee of a particular theoretical perspective or a practitioner who favors an integrative approach, one can not avoid being enriched by exposure to the wealth of ever-changing ideas and perspective on psychotherapy captured in this text."

Very informative 29 July 2004
By Brandon - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book gives brief but thorough explanations of the various theories used in clinical practice. This book is dull, at times, but highly useful. A great addition to any knowledge base.

The psychotherapy book 30 Dec. 2002
By Katherine - Published on
Format: Paperback
I used this book as a student in my psychotherapy course. I never knew there were so many psychotherapeutic approaches. I was amazed. I enjoyed exploring all these schools analyzed so beautifully in this book. I finally got the chance to see what school of psychotherapy was closer to my needs. I recommend it to all those who have a blurry idea of psychotherapy, like I did.

Excellent introduction to the many psychotherapies 7 Jan. 2005
By Law Enforcement - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book provides excellent introductions to a variety of psychotherapies, indeed the most popular methods today. There are over 400 different therapies, and as such this book can not cover them all. However, the book does provide adequate detail for an indepth overview of the therapies, and comes highly recommended to beginning students and graduate students alike.

Best Book for Clinical Psychology Course 17 Nov. 2007
By Colin M. Burchfield, Ph.D. - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is, by far, my favorite book for use in teaching a Clinical Psychology course. The most appealing component of this book is that it uses theoretical formulators or significant contributors to the perspectives presented(ie., Beck, Ellis, Rollo & May, etc.) as original authors whenever possible. There are, unfortunately, some problematics in the chapters written by others (e.g., the author of the classical psychoanalysis chapter indicating, naively, that Freud's theory was deterministic - ignoring, completely, Freud's more subjective and telic explanations of psychological phenomena and that his deterministic perspectives were more add-ons to his final theory to appease his more biologically minded contemporaries...see my website: [...]). Still, even with such provisos, I recommend this book as a good introduction to theories/perspectives in clinical psychology/psychotherapy. For a better, more comprehensive reading of the grand personality theories and psychotherapies, I HIGHLY recommend you purchase a copy of Rychlak's, _Introduction to Personality and Psychotherapy_.

Good text, but no longer "current" 29 Sept. 2010
By Ross - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this textbook on accident from Amazon when attempting to purchase the newest edition of the same textbook by Corsini and Wedding. The authors did a fine job of providing information about the major types of psychotherapy, and I found the text informative and well written. However, there are several completely different chapters with newer psychotherapy modalities presented in the newest edition that readers should be aware of. Furthermore, the newest edition does a much better job of providing current empirical evidence for supporting theoretical frameworks of most major forms of psychotherapy. If you are a student in psychology or a practicing clinical psychologist, I strongly advise you to buy the newest edition of this text.
