All therapeutic approaches employed in counselling and psychotherapy are based upon particular models or assumptions about people, their nature and what causes them to develop psychological problems or 'psychopathology'. Psychopathology and Therapeutic Approaches offers students and trainee practitioners with little or no prior knowledge a concise and much-needed introduction to psychopathology and the different forms of psychological assistance available. All the major models of psychopathology are discussed, along with the therapeutic approaches they inform, including: *psychoanalytic and psychodynamic, *behavioural and cognitive, and *humanistic approaches. In recognition of the non-psychological influences on people's lives, the book also introduces readers to a number of additional important but often over-looked approaches, including the biomedical, the transpersonal and the socio-cultural. Key practice issues, such as the role of scientific method and research in counselling and psychotherapy, the importance of evidence based practice, and the development and implications of eclecticism and integration, are outlined and evaluated. With its accessible style and captivating use of case examples, Psychopathology and Therapeutic Approaches will appeal to students studying abnormal or applied psychology within health studies, nursing, social work and psychology courses, as well as to all newcomers to counselling and psychotherapy .

'What a find this book is! For me, certainly, but also for any student, practitioner, teacher, or researcher in the field...perhaps even for the thoughtful consumer, or indeed any onlooker interested in the state of the art today.' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal 'It fills a real gap for all who would like a straightforward introduction to the different models of psychopathology regardless of whether they adopt a psychodynamic, humanistic or cognitive behavioural approach...Clearly and accessibly written, with case examples that bring the theory to life, this is a highly recommended book.' - Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
