Critical Issues in Psychotherapy Translating New Ideas into Practice by Brent D. Slife, Richard N. Williams, Sally H. Barlow

Critical Issues in Psychotherapy examines new and existing models in psychotherapy and presents them in an accessible manner to the practitioner in training through illustrative therapy cases and practitioner commentaries. There are many new models that have emerged in psychotherapy in recent years; however; they have not often been made accessible to front line practitioners. This volume is key in that it translates scholarly findings about established and new approaches into relevant therapeutic implications. This book is an excellent text for advanced courses in psychotherapy and counselling practice and theory. Practitioners who want to acquaint themselves or re-evaluate many of the methods in psychotherapy will also find this valuable.


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. -- Brain Vandenberg

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
