Psychotherapy is now hardly contentious, a safety net for the perils of modern life. But what - really - is it all about? Here is a unique and valuable summary of this complex profession, focussing on the main types of therapies: the 'talking cures' of psychoanalysis; behavioural and cognitive techniques; somatic solutions; humanist, gestalt and existential approaches; individual and group therapies - plus some of the diverse, less well-known complementary and alternative ways to help or be helped. No stale 'how-to' but a helpful, learned and vibrantly illustrated overview The perfect companion to the phenomenally successful Introducing Psychology
Nigel Benson is the author of the hugely successful Introducing Psychology.
