Overview

What is psychotherapy about?


What are the similarities and differences of its many forms?


What are the most recent developments in the field?


Introduction to Psychotherapy has been an essential reference book since its publication in 1979, and is regularly included in reading lists for trainee psychotherapists, psychiatrists and other professionals. It is often recommended to interested lay people and prospective patients. This third edition takes into account recent changes in psychotherapy theory, practice and research.


The authors are all psychoanalysts. The first edition arose from the experiences of Dennis Brown and Jonathan Pedder working and teaching together as Consultant Psychotherapists at St Mary's Hospital and Medical School, London.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Group Analysis
Praise for the previous edition: One of the rare introductions to psychotherapy ... wealth of examples from practice...
Nursing Standard
An excellent starting point for all those interested in this developing area ... Highly recommended.
Ozlem Dubauskas
This book is about psychotherapy. It is a third edition; the previous editions were published in 1971 and 1991. The purpose is to introduce the reader to the principles of psychotherapy. The authors target psychiatrists, psychiatry residents, psychologists, and social workers as audience. Additionally, people who are interested getting therapy or who are already in therapy might benefit from the book. The text consists of two sections. In the first the authors inform readers about basic principles of psychotherapy by introducing terminology and different theories. The second section is larger than the first and in it the authors aim to provide more practical information. Even though the subtitle is ""An outline of psychodynamic principles and practice,"" subjects such as group, family, and social therapies are covered at an appropriate level. Using an easy and understandable language, the authors reach the targeted audience group. Samples from literature and different articles enrich the information. Tables and graphics enhance understanding of the material. A long list of references is organized alphabetically before the index. More than two thirds of the references were published before the second edition. Dennis Brown and Jonathan Pedder edited previous editions, and Anthony Bateman is included as an editor in this edition. All three are psychoanalysts from England. This very nice book is easy to read and contains essential information with an easy language.
