About the Author:

Richard S. Sharf has been a counseling psychologist at the Center for Counseling and Student Development at the University of Delaware for 37 years, providing counseling to university students. He also was the internship coordinator for the Psychology Doctoral Internship program. In addition, he taught graduate courses in counseling in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies. In writing THEORIES OF PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELING: CONCEPTS AND CASES, he corresponded with over 70 experts on theories of psychotherapy to ensure that the book is accurate and up to date. He is also author of APPLYING CAREER DEVELOPMENT THEORY TO COUNSELING, 6th Edition (2014, Cengage Learning).

Review:

" ...student friendly and a great teaching tool. It provides a systematic, comprehensive, and balanced evaluation of the current status of all major psychotherapeutic approaches. The content of the chapters explains the historical development, examines some methodological challenges in translating research into practice, and considers the impact on treatment outcome of factors relating to human diversity such as gender and multicultural factors."

"The text is comprehensive, well organized, and cutting edge in delineating relevant research, new approaches, and key issues confronting therapists. My students praise the book. They often refer to the transcripts and cases that demonstrate how to apply a particular approach or technique and state how helpful they are."

"This edition includes an introduction of empirically based treatments and the common factors model of psychotherapy. The common factors model is one that all students of psychotherapy should be trained in. I found each chapter to have an excellent balance between theory, empirical support, and case material. Undergraduate and graduate students who read this book will have a solid introduction into a wide range of psychotherapies and will begin to embark on developing their own theoretical orientation."
