Proven author and professor Dr. Sharf delivers a thorough explanation of concepts as well as insightful case summaries and therapist-client dialogue that illustrate techniques and treatment in practice. He demonstrates how theories can be applied to individual therapy or counseling for common psychological disorders - such as depression and generalized anxiety disorders - as well as how to apply them to group therapy. A final chapter compares and critiques each of the theories. For the major theories presented in the text, basic information about background, personality theory, and theory of psychotherapy provides a means for understanding the application of psychotherapy theory. Insight into the personal life and philosophical influences of a theorist also helps explain how the theorist views human behavior.
