Synopsis

"This volume demonstrates how six therapists working within the structures of six different major theoretical orientations would treat the same person. Approaches include: Ericksonian Hypnotherapy (Lankton), REBT (Ellis), Multimodal Therapy (Lazarus), Individual Psychotherapy (Corsini), Person-Centered Therapy (Zimring), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (McGrady). Each therapist explains the logic that underpins his or her clinical interventions. This think-aloud methodology will have great appeal for students and clinicians."
