Now in its eleventh edition and used in top Counseling, Psychology and Social Work programs, CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES helps you learn, compare and apply the major systems of psychotherapy in a way that will be meaningful in your future practice. Every chapter is written by either an originator or a leading proponent of a system. Each of these distinguished figures describes the basic principles of the system and highlights how it differs from other systems. A case example in every theory chapter guides you through the problem, evaluation, treatment and follow-up process. A companion volume, CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, is available in this title's MindTap; it offers detailed cases that illustrate the basic techniques and methods of each theory.

  • Each chapter now includes learning objectives, tying the chapter content to the crucial competencies students will need in their future professional work in psychotherapy.

  • All chapters are updated to include the most current research findings, with an emphasis on reviewing the empirical evidence supporting each system.

  • Students can supplement their understanding of each system by reading detailed cases from the companion volume, CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, newly available in MindTap for Current Psychotherapies.

  • The concluding chapter addresses critical issues and recent controversies in Psychology, including the appropriate role of mental health providers in interrogations and the findings of the American Psychological Association's Independent Review (the Hoffman Report).

  • Every chapter is updated with the nomenclature used in the fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5).

  • All authors examine the evidence-based support for the theory they present, and share their ideas about the importance and limitations of evidence-based practice.

  • The book is well known for its pedagogy. Each chapter follows a consistent organization that allows students to read and study "horizontally" (from section to section) or "vertically" (comparing all chapter overviews, for example, before moving to all history sections). A reference chart at the front of the book helps student quickly locate information.

  • Each theory chapter includes an applications section that features a case example with a problem, evaluation, treatment and follow-up.

  • An extensive, detailed and up-to-date glossary provides students with a convenient reference guide to the topics and terminology discussed in the book.

  • CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, 7th Edition, by Wedding and Corsini uses cases to bring basic techniques and methods to life. These cases are available to be included in the MindTap course for CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES.
