Transformation in Psychotherapy: Corrective Experiences Across Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic, and Psychodynamic Approaches

This volume fills the gap in the literature on a hitherto obscure-but crucial-aspect of psychotherapy: the corrective experience as a harbinger of transformative change in the therapy process. Psychotherapy scholars Castonguay and Hill bring together leading researchers on the theoretical bases of corrective experiences and on transformative breakthroughs across various client perspectives, different psychotherapeutic forms, and treatments for specific problems such as generalized anxiety disorder and anorexia nervosa. Written for the therapist as well as the researcher in psychotherapeutic process and outcome, Transformation in Psychotherapy is a well-grounded read filled with fresh insight into the therapeutic process.
