Post-modern ideas are now making an impact in psychotherapy and counselling. There is, however, nothing in the current literature that brings together thinking for those professionals who may not be aware of how post-modernism can help inform their work. Post-Modernism for Psychotherapists is a primer which takes the reader through the ideas of the most important post-modern thinkers (as well as the roots of post-modernism and critiques of post-modernism), giving a clear summary of the essential points of their ideas and how they relate to current and future psychotherapy theory and practice. It will be essential reading for psychotherapists and counsellors, as well as those in training, who need an accessible text covering the basic philosophical ideas and their relation to psychotherapy. Contents: Phenomenological and Existential Roots including Kierkegaard, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty. Other Roots including Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Saussure. Post-Modern Continental Philosophers including Lyotard, Baudrillard, Lacan, Derrida, Foucault, Kristeva, Irigaray, Cixous, Deleuze and Guattari, Levinas, Zizek, Wittgentstein. Critiques of Post-Modernism.
