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. Chapter appendixes direct readers to videos showing specific techniques in APA's database of psychotherapy demonstrations, PsycTHERAPY®, so that readers can see interventions in action.
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.
