Summary
"Most therapists-in-training feel anxious about practicing psychotherapy. Helping another human being overcome life's difficulties is an exciting and daunting responsibility--making the adoption of the right therapeutic approach an essential task. Yet it can be overwhelming to choose from the scores of theories and approaches available, estimated at some 250 theories to date. This book's unique premise is that there is no "right" theory of psychotherapy. Rather, there is a therapeutic approach that is fitting for each therapist and client. Derek Truscott skillfully presents the nine leading systems of psychotherapy, the underlying rationale and approach to treatment for each, and their seminal theorists. Each chapter showcases a specific theory's therapeutic goals, its assumptions about the therapist-client relationship, client tasks, and the related change processes. Chapters discuss how each approach has evolved and is practiced today and end with thought-provoking case examples, learning tasks, and journal exercises. Through exploratory reflection, this book will help you find a theory that is compatible with your own worldview and will encourage you to be a more effective therapist by adapting it to honor the worldviews of your clients. By better understanding your values and those on which the major systems of psychotherapy are based, you can choose a compatible model for practice that maximizes your satisfaction, confidence, and effectiveness as a therapist"--Jacket.
