Es una introducción, muy general, sobre las técnicas de psicoterapia. Se hace un recorrido empezando por el psicoanálisis - Freud no sólo parió ideas perturbadas sobre lo fálico - hasta llegar a las terapias complementarias. No entra en detalles, es una introducción, repito. Lo mejor, y la razón por la que considero que merezca la pena leerlo, si se tiene interés en el tema, es que cada página es una viñeta, lo cual lo hace todo más divertido.

This one I borrowed form the library where I'm studying counselling. So far it's great, very easy to read especially for someone like me who has a billion things going on right now. It's not difficult to get you're head around the style of writing, it's very straight forward and it includes some comical cartoons which are refreshing to see in a book of this nature. Tahlya

Great little introduction to psychotherapy. I am a big fan of the Introducing series when you want an entertaining overview of a topic in a few hours!
