CHOICE Review

Released in the "Theories of Psychotherapy Series" (which will comprise 24 volumes), these volumes function well independently as separate introductions to theoretical orientations or combine beautifully to provide an overview of the varied traditions that underpin contemporary psychotherapy. Series editors Jon Carlson (Governors State Univ.) and Matt Englar-Carlson (California State Univ., Fullerton), both of whom have their roots in Adlerian theory and psychotherapy, posit that theory guides clinical practice while simultaneously charting a course for new developments that represent the evolution and adaptation of psychotherapeutic approaches. For each volume, the editors sought out an author who is a leader in the field and qualified to write a succinct yet comprehensive description of psychotherapy theory. Brown (president-elect of the APA's Trauma Psychology division) has been recognized by the APA and numerous other professional organizations for her work and writing; Jordan (director of the Stone Center, Wellesley College; assistant professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School) is one of the founders of the relational-cultural tradition; Schneider (adjunct, Saybrook Graduate School) is editor of the Journal of Humanistic Psychology and a licensed practicing humanistic therapist; Krug is a licensed therapist in private practice trained in humanist and existential traditions.The volumes share an organizational structure that facilitates easy navigation of each book and comparison of theories across volumes and common dimensions. Each begins with an introduction, followed by a chapter providing historical context for the theory. The remaining four chapters (in each volume) provide, respectively, a comprehensive description of the theory; a discussion of therapeutic application; an evaluation of the theory; and a look at future directions. The individual authors are deft at tailoring the structure to highlight the unique attributes and applications of the respective theory. All volumes include a summary, glossary, and thorough bibliography. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals. A. N. Douglas Mount Holyoke College
