I know a textbook right? This is the only textbook that I read cover to cover and found it fascinating. I didn't know how many systems of Psychotherapy there are. They all have good points for different reasons except Feminist Therapy which is whack.

I haven't finished teaching the course yet, but I think I can review the book at this point. My students found this text convoluted and cumbersome to read, but that may say more about their skills than about the book itself as their academic backgrounds are weak, by and large.

Kinda disappointing for a $200+ book. At first I was excited - it looked like a great idea. But after a few chapters I realized that the first and intro chapters contained the whole learning of the book, and I don't think I got much out of anything else. The chapters were mostly a more in-depth review of the theories of psychotherapy that I was already fairly well versed in. I think a better volume is Duncan et al.'s 2010 work: The Heart and Soul of Change - much more new research and insight.

Very balanced, interesting presentation of not only the theories and techniques of psychotherapy, but one that delved into the personal life and background of the major theorists. I liked the biographical aspect the most.

Yes, I read an entire textbook on my own time. I don't really know what I'm talking about in the Land of Psych quite yet, but this book seems to be a good survey of therapies.

I am using this predominantly for a chapter on gender- and culture-sensitive therapies.
