This comprehensive and accessible book charts the origins and development of the major non-psychoanalytic fields in counselling and psychotherapy.

Leading British and North American psychotherapists examine a range of approaches including person-centred, transactional analysis, Gestalt, cognitive and behavioural therapy. They discuss how, why and where each approach came about, and the context and influences under which it was formulated. They go on to survey the further development of theory and practice in each case, taking in the most significant trends and highlighting advances which are often not recognized or fully understood. Each approach is then brought firmly up to date with an overview of its current ideology and direction, so that readers can relate its present-day context to its historical background.

`An exciting collection of current thought about the diverse applications and systems that are present in today's eclectic psychotherapy science... This book shows that there is a need for integration and harmony rather than antagonism. We are after all at heart attempting to serve in whichever way we feel is our truth. This is a book that evokes and creates thought; depending upon your own therapeutic approach, there is much to offer by way of alternatives, free association and appreciation of other schools, and it is here that Dryden's editing is excellent' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

`An important collection' - Scientific and Medical Network Journal

`Windy Dryden is to be congratulated on this comprehensive collection which will give the student and practitioner a valuable overview of the non-psychoanalytic fields in counselling and psychotherapy... the 14 contributors have created an accessible textbook which brings the approaches [covered] well into the latter half of the 90s' - [ac]Eisteach, The Journal of the Irish Association for Counselling and Therapy

`Charting the main theoretical and practical developments in the major non-psychoanalytic approaches to psychotherapy... this book seems to be a very useful one to anyone studying these matters in a serious way. And really there is nothing like it elsewhere' - Self & Society

`A good narrative introduction to many approaches' - Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences
