About the Author:

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.

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.

Review:

"Once again, Corsini and Wedding have provided an up-to-date scholarly presentation of current psychotherapies. The integration of historical background, philosophical tenets, and case presentations will prove informative to both beginning students and seasoned clinicians. This edited volume provides a fine introduction to alternative models of psychotherapy. Kudos on a job well done!"

"CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, Seventh Edition makes an outstanding contribution to understanding major approaches to psychotherapy. It is the only textbook containing chapters written either on their own or with a collaborator by many of the approaches' originators: namely, Aaron Beck, Albert Ellis, Carl Rogers, Arnold Lazarus, Rollo May and Irvin Yalom. In addition other therapeutic approaches are presented by leading exponents. Each chapter contains a thoughtful and thorough presentation of the approach's theory and practice, including a case presentation. The book is a genuinely authoritative source and I recommend it most highly." "Any clinician, established or aspiring, will find that this volume significantly expands his or her repertoire of possible pathways to clinical understanding and intervention. Whether one is a devotee of a particular theoretical perspective or a practitioner who favors an integrative approach, one can not avoid being enriched by exposure to the wealth of ever-changing ideas and perspective on psychotherapy captured in this text."

"This book is a great resource and I strongly recommend it for use in psychotherapy courses. It's important for students to learn about the variety of psychotherapeutic approaches, even if they hope to master only one of them. This book enables students to compare approaches, within a coherent structure and in a fair and balanced manner."

"The reason for selecting the Corsini text is that it presents a broad overview of theories written by experts in their respective fields. It is almost like reading primary works; yet the theories are summarized in such a way that students can easily grasp the essential elements of each approach."

"I describe this text to colleagues as a good way to initiate the beginning counselor/therapists to the array of psychotherapeutic theories by systematically exposing them to original sources. I maintain that this is a significant advantage over having the student read one author's "take" on numerous theories."
