The Handbook of Contemporary Psychotherapy comprehensively describes the key constructs and key skills involved in the craft of psychotherapy. The chosen constructs contained in this handbook were selected because of their important roles in many psychotherapy cases. Complex patients who do not fall under the so-called empirically supported treatments and diagnostic categories currently available are addressed in a practical manner offering the readers of this text an enriched therapeutic repertoire upon which to rely in dealing with the problems arising in psychotherapy. This book will be of interest to both the experienced psychotherapist wanting to become even more effective by experiencing new ideas as well as a text for beginning students to better orient to the complexities of actual psychotherapy. It will be useful to all the major disciplines of psychotherapy: psychiatry, psychology, social work, psychiatric nursing, marital and family therapists, etc.
