Overview

Systematic, comprehensive, and balanced, this stimulating book helps readers understand a wide variety of therapies, including psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, gestalt, interpersonal, exposure, behavioral, cognitive, systemic, integrative. The book provides an integrative framework that embraces both the essential similarities and the fundamental differences among the psychotherapies.
The authors explore each system's theory of personality, theory of psychopathology, resulting therapeutic process and relationship. By doing so, Prochaska and Norcross demonstrate how much psychotherapy systems agree on the processes producing change while disagreeing on the content that needs to be changed. The limitations, practicalities, and outcome research of each psychotherapy are also presented to bring both the similarities and differences to life, the authors demonstrate how the same complex psychotherapy case (Mrs. C) is formulated and treated by each system.
