"Therapeutic Approaches in Psychology" is a simple introduction to the many psychological therapies in use today, including cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. Each is explained in general principles and supported by examples and their application to different mental disorders. The book includes sections on methodology, community care and areas of more recent controversy such as the detrimental effects of therapy. With its helpful textbook features to assist in examination and learning techniques, it should interest a wide readership of psychology students as well as anyone training for the caring services.
