From the cover: This major new edition of the highly successful Individual Therapy: A Handbook presents a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the 12 key approaches to individual therapy.

A distinguished team assembled from among Britains leading counsellors and psychotherapists all experienced exponents of the particular form of therapy they discuss introduce the principles and methods of each approach concisely and accessibly. Following a clearly defined structure, chapters place each school of thought in its historical context, outline its main theoretical assumptions and set out its mode of practice, while case examples illustrate the approach in action. The contributors clarify the ways in which practitioners can identify those clients who will most benefit from each form of therapy and indicate the general strengths and limitations of each therapeutic approach.

Further chapters place counselling and psychotherapy in its social context, relate research to actual therapeutic practice and explore the training and supervision of individual therapists.

The handbook is designed for trainee and practising counsellors: novice therapists interested in obtaining an overall picture of the practice of individual therapy as well as experienced therapists interested in learning about alternative approaches to individual therapy. It will also be a valuable resource for others working in the helping professions, and for students of applied psychology.
