Today's counseling and psychotherapy-related careers require practitioners to grasp and respond to a continually changing context. This comprehensive and contemporary introduction to the field prepares students to engage productively with a variety of theoretical models, practice settings, and patient problems. The author draws on her experience as a practicing therapist and professor in presenting theory, practice, and research in a clear and compelling style. Starting with the big picture of psychotherapy within its sociocultural context and fundamental issues, Austad then reviews the major theoretical models. Students are encouraged to develop a mental model that helps them to compare and contrast key features of each theory and to understand the settings in which each best applies.

She graduated with a B.A. in psychology from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. During the time she lived in Canada, she was deeply impressed with the health care system rendered by the Canadian government.

She completed an internship at Connecticut Valley Hospital, a state institute for the chronically mentally ill, worked at a private psychiatric hospital for a year, and for a staff model health maintenance organization, Community Health Care Plan, in New Haven CT.
