This work, written by, & designed for, medical & non-medical practitioners comprises an authoritative source of reference of the various present-day psychotherapies or 'talking cures'. It contains basic accounts of & 'dynamic' (Freudian) Individual, Group, & Family procedures, as well as the much in vogue Cognitive, Cognitive-Analytic, and Behavioural theories and techniques. There are special chapters on psychotherapy within general medical practice and of work with Offenders.
