"The contributors are an esteemed group that have played significant roles in shaping contemporary understanding of the issues they will be addressing. The number of chapters coincides with the number of weeks in a typical semester, increasing its use as a course text."
—Brian Vandenberg, University of Missouri-St. Louis
A landmark publication, Critical Issues in Psychotherapy moves the discipline into the new millennium by addressing many of the field's new and revolutionary approaches. Through illustrative therapy cases and practitioner commentaries, this text examines both the newer and the more established models in psychotherapy. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this volume translates the new approaches to psychotherapy, making them more accessible to students. Organized around the issues that are fundamental to psychotherapy, chapters include information on empirically validated treatments, mainstream theories, individualism, spirituality, multiculturalism, moral and legal discourse, and managed care. Bringing together an esteemed group of authorities, this will be the ideal text for students in advanced courses in psychotherapy and counseling practice and theory.
