Comprehensive in scope yet succinct in its description and explanation of individual theories, Sharf's book introduces students to the systematic theories. For each major theory presented in the text, basic information about background, personality theory, and theory of psychotherapy provides a way for students to understand the application of the theory. Using case summaries and client-therapist dialogues, Sharf demonstrates how twelve theories can be applied to individual therapy and to common psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety, and borderline disorders. Sharf shows how each theory can be applied to work with groups. Sharf also describes how each theory can be applied to families, as well as providing a description of family systems theories in Chapter 13, Family Therapy.
