Overview

Psychotherapy Theories and Techniques explores the richness and variety of psychotherapy in a collection of carefully chosen excerpts from APA publications. Intended for students and practitioners, this volume provides a unique look at contemporary psychotherapy theory and the specific interventions associated with each orientation.

All major approaches in psychotherapy are included — everything from cognitive–behavioral therapy to psychoanalytic therapy — as well as newer approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy and schema therapy. So that readers can see interventions in action, chapter appendixes list supplemental videos that are available exclusively through PsycTHERAPY®, APA's subscription database of psychotherapy demonstration videos.

Whether just beginning a clinical program of study or already in practice, readers may use this volume as both a companion to PsycTHERAPY as well as a unique survey of contemporary approaches and techniques. (Note: Access to the videos listed in the chapter appendices is available to readers with individual subscription or institutional license to PsycTHERAPY.)
