Editorial Reviews


"CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, Fourth edition provides a series of 13 case write-ups by leading psychotherapists, including many originators of the approaches. Ideally the book should be read as a companion to CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, Seventh Edition, but it is still useful on its own. Each case study enables the reader to get a good insight into how the therapist actually works. Readers can learn skills that they may then, when ready, use in their therapy practice."

"The cases in this casebook bring key concepts to life, making them readily accessible to the reader. The clinical material provides the opportunity for the reader to experience master clinicians firsthand via reading illustrative case summaries or verbatim transcripts of sessions, thus providing a window into the consulting room. In this way, the clinician's style comes alive, and abstract concepts are translated into vivid descriptions and dialogue."

"The volume's great merit is in bridging the gap between the theories of personality and their applications in therapy. This information is not often readily available, especially to students and young professionals. Moreover, eminent therapists explain their modi operandi in their own words."

"Strengths of this book include the rich content and vivid visualization of the counselor/client interaction from different theoretical perspectives. Case vignettes such as these help students see the actual process and content from session to session."

About the Author

Danny Wedding was trained as a clinical psychologist at the University of Hawaii and the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He later worked for two years for the U.S. Congress, first in the Senate and later in the House of Representatives. Danny directed the Missouri Institute of Mental Health (MIMH), a University of Missouri university research and policy center, for 19 years. This time included Fulbright sabbaticals in Thailand and South Korea. Since 2010 Danny has served as Associate Dean for Management and International Programs for the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, where he is directly responsible for the CSPP programs in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Mexico City as well as for the development of new international initiatives. With the assistance of colleagues, Danny has written or edited thirteen books, including CURRENT PSYCHOTHERAPIES, CASE STUDIES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY, BEHAVIOR AND MEDICINE, THE NEUROPSYCHOLOGY HANDBOOK, SCREENING FOR BRAIN IMPAIRMENT, MOVIES AND MENTAL ILLNESS, and POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY AT THE MOVIES. Danny is also the Editor for PsycCRITIQUES: Contemporary Psychology--APA Review of Books.

Raymond Corsini's training was diverse. He received a BA and MA at the City College of New York, then did his doctoral training at Syracuse University, Cornell University, University of California, University of Wisconsin (all during the time of his work as a prison psychologist), and finally obtained a Ph.D. at age 41 from the University of Chicago under Carl Rogers. He met and interacted with J.L. Moreno, Fritz Perls, Victor Frankl, and Albert Ellis, among others, but his main teacher was Rudolf Dreikurs, an Adlerian. He had three separate careers: as a prison psychologist for 15 years, then an industrial psychologist for ten years, and finally in private practice of psychotherapy and counseling for 30 years. He taught courses at over a dozen universities and full time at the University of Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of California at Berkeley. He has published over 60 books under 43 titles, including four encyclopedias and the most complete dictionary of psychology, and has written or edited 18 books in counseling or psychotherapy.

18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By P. Dunlap on September 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book offers clinical critiques of actual cases using a teaching format which defines each case presented with the type of therapy theory employed by the therapist. My personal favorite is chapter 8, "Fat Lady" by Irvin D. Yalom. It is existentialism at its brutally honest best, and shows clearly the human side of the therapist's countertransference and growth through that countertransference. I found this book to be quite an asset for understanding the practical differences between the various counseling theories. It greatly compliments and illustrates the theories in a very readable context.

I was advised by a friend that I should purchase this text. I have no regrets in doing so and the book is quite helpful to me for reviewing similar cases that come to me in my private practice.
