Review:

"carefully integrates key elements from diverse viewpoints." -- Richard D. Recor, Ph.D., The Montana Psychologist

"...an impressive integration of many approaches and the inclusion of often-neglected topics such as resistance and the newer neurobiological model is commendable. I personally found it very interesting and informative." -- E. Thomas Dowd, Ph.D., ABPP, Department of Psychology, Kent State University

"...a much-needed coherent and integrative perspective." -- Counseling Today, American Counseling Association

"...bound to have a positive ripple effect, providing quick, clinical approaches for use with brief treatment clients." -- The Master's Advocate, Northamerican Association of Masters in Psychology.



Books in The Practical Therapist Series are designed to answer the troubling "what-do-I-do-now-and-how-do-I-do-it?" questions often confronted in the practice of psychotherapy. Written in plain language, technically innovative, theoretically integrative, filled with case examples, The Practical Therapist Series brings the wisdom and experience of expert mentors to the desk of every therapist. --Publisher's Note
