Overview

Comprehensive in scope, yet succinct in descriptions and explanations, THEORIES OF PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELING: CONCEPTS AND CASES, 6TH EDITION equips students with a solid understanding of the systematic theories of psychotherapy and counseling. This edition thoroughly explains concepts with case summaries and therapist-client dialogues that illustrate techniques and treatment in practice. The author demonstrates how to apply theories to group or individual therapy for common psychological disorders, such as depression and generalized anxiety disorders. For each major theory in this edition, students examine background, personality theory, and theory of psychotherapy and application of the psychotherapy theory.

Richard S. Sharf, University of Delaware

Richard S. Sharf has been a counseling psychologist at the Center for Counseling and Student Development at the University of Delaware for 37 years, providing counseling to university students. He also was the internship coordinator for the Psychology Doctoral Internship program. In addition, he taught graduate courses in counseling in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies. In writing THEORIES OF PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELING: CONCEPTS AND CASES, he corresponded with over 70 experts on theories of psychotherapy to ensure that the book is accurate and up to date. He is also author of APPLYING CAREER DEVELOPMENT THEORY TO COUNSELING, 6th Edition (©2014, Cengage Learning).
  • Sharf presents constructivist and integrative approaches in two chapters. Chapter 12's constructivist approaches include expansive coverage of solution-focused and narrative therapy. Chapter 16 shows students how to make their own integrative therapy by demonstrating three methods of integrating theory. The chapter also offers full explanations for the transtheoretical approach (Prochaska and Norcross) as well as Wachtel's cyclical psychodynamics model.
  • Reflecting the latest developments from the field, the book draws from the expertise of more than 70 experts on a wide variety of theoretical approaches to psychotherapy and counseling. Each specialist provided suggestions for inclusion of specific content as well as reviews of chapters at various stages of the book's development.
  • Sharf includes background information on each theory to provide historical context. He also provides material on the personal life and philosophical influences of each theorist to help students better understand and appreciate how the theorist views human behavior. Discussion of the theorist's view of personality provides insight into the therapist's approach to changes in behavior, thoughts, or feelings, and ultimately, his or her theory of psychotherapy.
  • In presenting each theory of psychotherapy, Sharf discusses goals, assessment, therapeutic relationships, techniques, research, current trends, and multicultural issues. The book also presents examples of each theory's application by using case summaries and therapist-client dialogues to illustrate the techniques and treatments.
  • The book aligns with current CACREP standards.
  • This book can be accompanied by CourseMate. Cengage Learning's CourseMate helps to bring course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook. CourseMate includes an integrated eBook, student manual content, quizzes, case studies, glossaries, flashcards, Theories in Action videos, and more.
  • Designed to bolster student understanding, chapter openers offer an overview of the personality theory and the techniques used for the theory chapters. These openers provide a detailed outline of the theory of psychotherapy and counseling--equipping students with a handy reference for their work.
  • The first theories text to include comprehensive information about evidence-based psychotherapy, THEORIES OF PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELING defines and discusses this key concept throughout the book, particularly when examples are given for treating a psychological disorder with an evidence-based treatment for a specific theory.
