The Heart and Soul of Change: Delivering What Works in Therapy 2nd Edition
Updating the classic first edition of “The Heart and Soul of Change”, editors Duncan, Miller, Wampold, and Hubble, have created a new and enriched volume that presents the most recent research on what works in therapeutic practice, a thorough analysis of this research, and practical guidance on how a therapist can truly ‘deliver what works in therapy’. This volume examines the common factors underlying effective psychotherapy and brings the psychotherapist and the client-therapist relationship back into focus as key determinants of psychotherapy outcome. The second edition of “The Heart and Soul of Change” also demonstrates the power of systematic client feedback to improve effectiveness and efficiency and legitimize psychotherapy services to third party payers. In this way, psychotherapy is implemented one person at a time, based on that unique individual’s perceptions of the progress and fit of the therapy and therapist. Readers familiar with the first edition will encounter the same pragmatic focus but with a larger breadth of coverage – this edition adds chapters on both youth psychotherapy and substance abuse treatment. Through reading “The Heart and Soul of Change, Second Edition: Delivering What Works in Therapy” clinicians of varied levels of experience will improve their understanding of what is truly therapeutic in the diverse forms of psychotherapy practiced today.
Culture affects us in nearly every aspect of American life, and David Matsumoto provides readers with the knowledge and skills necessary to interact in our multicultural and pluralistic world.
This field-leading book puts psychological theories and concepts into a cross-cultural framework that invites readers to discover, question, and ultimately, understand the relationship between culture and psychology through exploration of topics like changing gender roles, sexuality, self-esteem, aggression, personality, and mate selection. It all adds up to a book that will leave readers with a deeper, more complex understanding of the nature of culture, its relationship to psychological processes, and the differences and similarities between cultures in the increasingly globalized world.
Now adapted for the Europe, Middle East and African market, Gerard Egan’s The Skilled Helper: A Client-Centred Approach teaches students a proven step-by-step counselling process to enable them to become confident and competent helpers. Internationally recognised for its emphasis on the collaborative nature of the therapist-client relationship and the vital importance of a client-centred approach, the text offers a practical three-stage model which drives client problem-managing and opportunity-developing action. The book integrates the most relevant aspects of different theoretical orientations (humanistic, cognitive, cognitive-behavioural, and solution-focused) into a pragmatic approach to helping.
