Editorial Reviews

Presents some recent developments in psychotherapy and demonstrates their close connections with one another, with an educative orientation, and in particular with behavioral psychology. Part of the purpose of gathering the material for this volume is to present the case for the educative, skill-based approach to psychological problems. Another is to present evidence for currently pursuing this orientation with a substantial variety of clients and problems. Thus, consistent with its scientist-practitioner orientation, the volume provides information relevant to implementing various skill-based interventions as well as presenting their research base and additional research questions. Following a general chapter on psychological skills training, the volume is divided into two parts: basic skills 10 chapters and applications 7 chapters. Annotation c.
