About

Overview

CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, Seventh Edition effectively combines powerful classic and contemporary cases to bring to life important concepts and practices in psychotherapy for students. Compelling new cases that illustrate Psychoanalysis, Client-Centered Therapy, Existential Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Contemplative Therapies, and Therapy in a Multicultural context have been added to the previous edition's collection of classic case studies by Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and Peggy Papp. There's also an entirely new chapter on Positive Psychotherapy. This popular casebook maintains its parallel structure with the Tenth Edition of Wedding and Corsini's CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES. Cases are chosen on the basis of intrinsic interest, clarity of presentation, and the extent to which each case demonstrates the basic techniques and methods of the theory being illustrated.

Features and Benefits

  • Fifteen case studies cover a comprehensive spectrum of fundamental therapies, including Adlerian, Rational Emotive Behavior, Contemplative (two cases), and Cognitive Therapy.
  • Illustrating theory in action, case studies present the actual practice of some of the world's most important psychotherapists, including Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and Peggy Papp.
  • In virtually every instance, the author of the primary chapter in CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES selected the case study in CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY as the best case to supplement his or her chapter.

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.
