Synopsis

Theories of Counselling and Psychotherapy An Introduction to the Different Approaches by Stephen Joseph

This authoritative overview of the main approaches to counselling and psychotherapy offers a uniquely concise and systematic framework for understanding and comparing different models of working. Bringing together the philosophical and practical elements of a wide range of psychological therapies, Stephen Joseph examines the assumptions and values that unerpin different understandings of mental distress and the various approaches to psychological assessment and treatment. He sets his discussion in the context of the contemporary drive towards evidence-based practice. This book will be essential reading for students of psychology and all newcomers to counselling and psychotherapy.

Reviews

Praise for the first edition: 'What a find this book is! For me, certainly, but also for any student, practitioner, teacher, or researcher in the field...perhaps even for the thoughtful consumer, or indeed any onlooker interested in the state of the art today.' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal 'It fills a real gap for all who would like a straightforward introduction to the different models of psychopathology regardless of whether they adopt a psychodynamic, humanistic or cognitive behavioural approach...Clearly and accessibly written, with case examples that bring the theory to life, this is a highly recommended book.' - Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
