About

Overview

Relevant and accessible, CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, 10th Edition helps students learn, compare, and apply the major systems of psychotherapy in a way that is meaningful to both their classroom experience and their own practices. The book is used in top counseling, psychology, and social work programs, and features an outstanding group of contributors--each of whom is either an originator or a leading proponent of one of the systems. Each contributor presents the basic principles of the system, including how it compares with other systems, in a clear and straightforward manner. Each theory chapter includes a case example that guides students through the problem, evaluation, treatment, and follow-up process. The tenth edition features new chapters on Psychoanalytic Psychotherapies and Positive Psychotherapy, and completely rewritten chapters on Behavior Therapy and Adlerian Psychotherapy. CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, which accompanies the tenth edition, offers corresponding cases that demonstrate the basic techniques and methods of the theory being illustrated. Available with InfoTrac® Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Features and Benefits

  • The tenth edition features a new chapter on Psychoanalytic Psychotherapies by Safran and Kriss; a completely rewritten chapter on Adlerian Psychotherapy by Maniacci, Sackett-Maniacci, and Mosak; a new chapter on Behavior Therapy by Antony; and a new chapter on Positive Psychotherapy by Rashid and Seligman.
  • The authors examine the evidence-based support for each theory and share their ideas about the current controversy regarding the importance and limitations of evidence-based practice.
  • The book is well known for its helpful pedagogy. Each chapter follows a consistent organization that allows students to read and study the book "horizontally" (from section to section) or "vertically" (comparing all chapter overviews, for example, before moving to all history sections). A reference chart at the front of the book helps student quickly locate information.
  • Each theory chapter includes an "Applications" section that features a case example with a problem, evaluation, treatment, and follow-up.
  • An extensive, detailed, and up-to-date glossary provides students with a convenient reference guide to the topics and terminology discussed in the book.
  • An appendix offers extensive research assistance, including information on locating and evaluating resources, MLA style guidelines, and research methodology.
  • A case-study book by the authors, CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, Seventh Edition, uses cases to bring basic techniques and methods to life.

Author Bio

Danny Wedding

Danny Wedding was trained as a clinical psychologist at the University of Hawaii and the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He later worked for two years for the U.S. Congress, first in the Senate and later in the House of Representatives. Danny directed the Missouri Institute of Mental Health (MIMH), a University of Missouri university research and policy center, for 19 years. This time included Fulbright sabbaticals in Thailand and South Korea. Since 2010 Danny has served as Associate Dean for Management and International Programs for the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, where he is directly responsible for the CSPP programs in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Mexico City as well as for the development of new international initiatives. With the assistance of colleagues, Danny has written or edited thirteen books, including CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, BEHAVIOR AND MEDICINE, THE NEUROPSYCHOLOGY HANDBOOK, SCREENING FOR BRAIN IMPAIRMENT, MOVIES AND MENTAL ILLNESS, and POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY AT THE MOVIES. Danny is also the Editor for PsycCRITIQUES: Contemporary Psychology--APA Review of Books.

Raymond J. Corsini

Raymond Corsini's training was diverse. He received a BA and MA at the City College of New York, then did his doctoral training at Syracuse University, Cornell University, University of California, University of Wisconsin (all during the time of his work as a prison psychologist), and finally obtained a Ph.D. at age 41 from the University of Chicago under Carl Rogers. He met and interacted with J.L. Moreno, Fritz Perls, Victor Frankl, and Albert Ellis, among others, but his main teacher was Rudolf Dreikurs, an Adlerian. He had three separate careers: as a prison psychologist for 15 years, then an industrial psychologist for ten years, and finally in private practice of psychotherapy and counseling for 30 years. He taught courses at over a dozen universities and full time at the University of Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of California at Berkeley. He has published over 60 books under 43 titles, including four encyclopedias and the most complete dictionary of psychology, and has written or edited 18 books in counseling or psychotherapy.
