Essential psychotherapies : theory and practice by Alan S Gurman( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As new forms of psychotherapy proliferate and clinicians increasingly integrate principles across models, a solid understanding of the foundational theories of the field remains critical. Essential Psychotherapies provides systematic and extensive expositions of 12 forms of psychotherapy being practiced today. The volume's scope encompasses influential treatments that have been developed relatively recently, such as the brief, cognitive, family, relational, and integrative psychotherapies, as well as more traditional treatments, such as psychoanalytic, existential-humanistic, and person-centered psychotherapies, Gestalt, group, and behavior therapy, and Transactional Analysis. Covering everything from the fundamentals to the latest innovations in theory and practice, eminent authorities represent their respective models in unusually coherent chapters enriched throughout by detailed case material."--Jacket
Theories of psychotherapy : origins and evolution by Paul L Wachtel( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text examines the 5 key theoretical orientations in contemporary psychotherapy: psychodynamic, experiential, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and integrative. Contributors lay out the major concepts that define these enduring theories of psychotherapy, discuss the ideas of the theorists who have expanded them, describe the evolution of these central concepts over time, and search for commonalities that unite closely related theories of therapy. This approach, which probes the essence of key assumptions shared by diverse therapists of each orientation, makes this book useful for both clinicians and students.

Psychoanalytic therapy and behavior therapy : is integration possible? by Hal Arkowitz( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has a question mark in its title because it aims to invite inquiry. The possibility of integrating psychoanalytic and behavior therapies has been controversial since it was first proposed about 50 years ago, and this has elicited a wide range of reactions from both psychologists and psy­ chiatrists. It was with the hope of fostering constructive interchange that this book was conceived. We wanted to spark further thinking about the question in the title in a way that could lead either to conceptual and clinical progress toward an integrated approach or to a clearer sense of the obstacles involved. In either case, we hoped that it would present a healthy challenge to current forms of psychoanalytic and behavior therapies. The present volume was stimulated by the appearance in 1977 of Paul Wachtel's book Psychoanalysis and Behavior Therapy: Toward an Integration. Al­ though many reviewers did not necessarily agree with Wachtel's proposals for integration, they (and we) were highly laudatory of his attempt. After reading the book, Hal Arkowitz organized a symposium on integration that took place in Chicago at the November 1978 meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy. The symposium included Cyril Franks, Merton Gill, Hans Strupp, Paul Wachtel, and Michael Merbaum as moderator. Arkowitz subsequently proposed to edit a book on integra­ tion and invited Messer to be coeditor
