"From reviews of the previous edition:" "A welcome primer for the psychotherapy novice. Accessible and exceptionally readable, the authors struck successfully a fine balance between giving enough background to orientate the newcomer to a clear level of understanding, and including too much detail at the expense of readability." - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy "An excellent small text which deserves to be widely read I shall urge my trainees to read it." - British Journal of Psychiatry "This book is strongly recommended to general psychiatrists in training who need t learn about the basic approaches to psychotherapy and to prepare them for their higher examinations." - The Lancet "Provides an excellent and up-to-date guide to psychotherapy for general practitioners and other members of the primary care team." - Journal of the Royal College of General Practitioners "This volume has gone far along the road towards providing the ideal initiation." - Irish Journal of Psychotherapy "This book is likely to retain its place as probably the most satisfactory introduction to the field. The book can be recommended as a first text for psychiatric trainees and others involved in psychotherapy." - Anthony Ryle, Psychiatric Developments "Provides a fine introduction to the major spheres of psychotherapy. One of the greatest contributions of the book is its blending of the academic and applied facets of psychotherapy in a manner that is understandable to the novice." - Contemporary Psychology
