I have used this text in a graduate course related to human behavior in the social environment. It provides a broad theoretical grounding in psychotherapy, including specific applications and interventions that can be used. I plan to use it in conjunction with the authors' video series this Fall to enhance student learning. The text provides a vast introduction to psychotherapy.
