2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Herbert L Calhoun on August 13, 2013
Format: Paperback
This cartoon guide to psychotherapy is true to its subtitle: A Graphic Guide. For that is exactly what it is. It spreads out across a vast landscape of time (from Empedocles to the Existentialists and beyond) -- and a vast jungle of techniques (at least 60) the confusion that remains contemporary psychotherapy.

Among many other ways of critiquing the reasons why so much confusion reigns in the field, one is sure to come away with two glaring impressions: (1) that for some unexplainable reason, this is not a scientific enterprise being conducted by adults; and (2) that culture and society are two of the most glaring variables missing from the diagnostic setting.

As for the first concern, were psychotherapy under even minimal adult supervision, it would seem obvious at this point in its erratic evolutionary development that just as the DSM defines and catalogs psychological symptoms, so too should patient's diagnostic tests be analyzed and catalogued on the basis of which "suite of therapies" (almost never a single therapy as is the case today) represent a best match. That is to say, which group of therapies would be the more efficacious in relieving a particular patient's symptoms? And while it is true that both the catalogue and the diagnosing of symptoms continue to be more art than science, the attempt to match "groups of therapies" with dialogistic findings for a given patient, would be a first step towards bringing some sense of coherency to applying psychotherapeutic techniques more efficaciously to patient's problems.

As it stands today, patients have available to them only "single technique therapists," when clearly even the most elemental psychological problem demands multiple and overlapping techniques if there is to be any chance at finding a solution.
