This classic text has helped over 50,000 students wishing to understand the key counselling and psychotherapy approaches. This sixth edition is the most comprehensive update since it was first published in 1984, with 15 newly contributed chapters and eight updated chapters. Each approach now includes a new Research section summarising the research findings, an in-depth Case Study illustrating how that approach works in practice, and an extended Practice section.

Also covered:

* historical context and development

* main theoretical assumptions

* which clients will benefit most

* strengths and limitations.

New chapters include: Compassion-Focussed Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Mindfulness in Individual Therapy, Pluralistic Therapy, Transpersonal Therapy. This is an ideal one-stop shop for trainees of counselling, psychotherapy, counselling psychology, psychology and other allied professions wanting to learn about the most commonly practised therapies today.
