Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The practitioner would have a hard time finding anything comparable to the breadth and depth of this excellent text. The quality of references makes the book worthwhile for anyone interested in knowing more about current work in improving psychotherapy."--Doody's

"This is a major work...There is no other textbook on psychotherapy like this available. This is clearly a book that belongs to the library of all those interested in and practicing psychotherapy, all trainees, and all training programs...It seems that my preconceived idea was correct-this is a major publishing event. So, "buy" is the final recommendation."--Annals of Clinical Psychiatry

"...this is a quintessential textbook. It looks like, feels like, and reads like a clinical textbook: comprehensive, thorough, compact, and prescriptive. It could sit on a shelf with medical textbooks and not seem out of place...The heft of the book certainly conveys a seriousness and sense of scientific rigor."--PsycCritiques

"The reader is invited to read about all the psychotherapies available for different conditions, and then form their own opinion... As with psychotherapy itself, some parts of the Oxford Textbook of Psychotherapy resonate with one's personal persuasion. It is essential reading for all who wish to hone their own Fredian art of listening."--British Journal of Psychology

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: The field of psychotherapy is burgeoning and many novel treatment approaches are appearing in the literature. This book provides an overview of major psychotherapy approaches and their varied uses to treat psychopathology.
Purpose: The three main goals of this book are to provide a comprehensive overview of evidence-based psychotherapy; to integrate psychotherapy in the research literature with its real-world clinical uses; and to make the book accessible to students from multiple disciplines, while also making it useful as an advanced reference for experienced clinicians.
Audience: This book is intended for practitioners and students in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, counseling, and social work. The editors are some of the most respected psychotherapy researchers and clinicians in the field and the contributing author list is an international cohort that contains unparalleled experts like Tim Beck and Theodore Millon.
Features: The first section is an introduction to 10 psychotherapeutic approaches, and the two remaining sections detail the use of psychotherapy for psychiatric disorders and for personality disorders. These sections cover these approaches as they apply to the entire lifespan, special populations, and special topics. For each of the approaches, the major premises and theories are covered and treatment principles and relevant research are included. Although not a comprehensive guide to delivering therapy, there are some examples of the tools used in the approaches to give readers an idea of what the treatment involves. Each of the chapters on a specific disorder contains information about the major symptoms to be treated, the use of different approaches, and the research behind each approach. Case examples are provided in some chapters to help illustrate key points. The special topics that conclude the book are succinct, and yet seem to cover the major issues and refer readers to worthwhile resources for more information. A wealth of references ends each chapter and the index is thorough.
Assessment: The editors began with not one, but three lofty goals and they succeed at all three. To have this immense amount of information at your fingertips is a precious commodity, but to have it current, evidence-based, and easy-to-reference is beyond reckoning. The book will be invaluable for clinicians as a reference to the myriad therapeutic possibilities and their specific benefits for various disorders. Make room on your bookshelf for this one or, better yet, clear a space on your desk to have it close at hand.
