Systematic and balanced, this comprehensive text uses a wealth of clinical case illustrations to help readers understand a wide variety of psychotherapies including psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, existential, person-centered, experiential, interpersonal, exposure, behavioral, cognitive, systemic, multicultural, and integrative. The Sixth Edition thoroughly analyzes 15 leading systems of psychotherapy and briefly surveys another 30, thus providing a broader scope than is available in most textbooks. Prochaska and Norcross explore each system's theory of personality, theory of psychopathology, and resulting therapeutic process and relationship. By doing so, they demonstrate how much psychotherapy systems agree on the processes producing change, while showing how they disagree on the content that needs to be changed. To bring these similarities and differences to life, the authors also present the limitations, practicalities, and outcome research of each system of psychotherapy.

Review:

"SYSTEMS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY covers, in a scholarly and balanced manner, a wide range of theories and methods -- which is what we sorely need. When using this book in one of my graduate courses, the students gave me an A+ for assigning this wide ranging and stimulating book."

"In my many years of clinical teaching and training, SYSTEMS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY is the only text I have known to reach such singular comprehensiveness and usefulness in helping students learn the theoretical foundations of psychotherapy. Norcross and Prochaska go beyond conventional descriptions of theories to present integrative perspectives, therapeutic commonalities, outcome research, and future directions. A superb and practical text!"

"SYSTEMS OF PSYCHOTHERAPY is a special book that has a special place among theory books in psychotherapy. Most such books are duly informative, but the Prochaska and Norcross text is in a league of its own in terms of its ability to both inform and engage the reader in the material. It has everything that I look for in such a book: Depth of analysis, extremely clear and crisp writing, sound organization, and evenhandedness in its comparative review of the various theories. Bravo to Prochaska and Norcross for this wonderful accomplishment."

"The authors are to be commended for assembling such a carefully crafted book. They make a serious effort to integrate theory, research, and clinical practice into each chapter."
