Greenberg, PhD
From the Back Cover
This book offers the clinician a theoretical, philosophical, and practical guide to a new and potentially powerful model of psychotherapy. Focusing on the context and process of change, Hayes and his colleagues set out a clear plan to help those clients who, as they put it, feel unable to find their way out of life's ongoing traps. Their blueprint for change encourages a strategic and technical eclecticism and the building of a strong working alliance. The pragmatic and reasonable approach described in this book will be of great interest to therapists from any disciplinary background. It will also serve as an excellent text in graduate-level counseling and psychotherapy courses (Arthur Freeman, EdD, ABPP). --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
