Existential-phenomenological theory has attained a high degree of interest and respectability - particularly when applied to the areas of psychotherapy and counselling. Dr Ernesto Spinelli is one of the leading practitioners of this particular therapeutic model. Following his work "Demystifying Therapy", Dr Spinelli here concentrates on case studies. Through his account and analysis, he challenges much contemporary therapeutic practice with its theory-laden assumptions. The book comprises a selection of cases drawn from the author's own practice. These cases highlight the application of the existential-phenomenological model of therapy, and present the model's principal hypotheses.--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
