An accessible guide to the field for those embarking on training or simply interested in finding out more about psychotherapy, this book maps the development and dimensions of contemporary practice. It explores the origins of psychotherapy and its applications and also examines the future of psychotherapy.

Reviews and Endorsements

A team of well-known and highly-regarded contributors examine issues which have particular bearing on psychotherapy today. This includes the changing roles for psychotherapists working in primary and secondary care and the demand for practice to be more 'evidence-based'.

A useful summary is provided of existing research into the efficacy and effectiveness of psychotherapy. Looking ahead, the book also examines the future of psychotherapy and considers the effect that the proposed statutory registration will have on the field.
