Overview

About the Product

CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY effectively combines powerful classic and contemporary cases to bring to life important concepts and practices in psychotherapy for students. Compelling new cases that illustrate Existential Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Therapy in a Multicultural context have been added to the previous edition's collection of classic case studies by Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and Peggy Papp. The Sixth Edition of this popular casebook maintains its parallel structure with the Ninth Edition of Wedding and Corsini's CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES. Cases are chosen on the basis of intrinsic interest, clarity of presentation, and the extent to which each case demonstrates the basic techniques and methods of the theory being illustrated.

Features

  • Fourteen case studies cover a comprehensive spectrum of fundamental therapies, including Adlerian, Analytical, Rational Emotive Behavior, Contemplative, and Cognitive Therapy.

  • Exhibiting theory in action, case studies present the actual practice of some of the world's most important psychotherapists, including Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and Peggy Papp.

  • In virtually every instance, the author of the primary chapter in CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES selected the case study in CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY as the best case to supplement his or her chapter.

  • The new edition maintains its parallel structure with the Ninth Edition of Wedding and Corsini's CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, making the combination of these two books the most comprehensive look at psychotherapy today.
