In Life Witness: Evolution of the Psychotherapist, T. Byram Karasu demonstrates how a young therapist can become an expert clinician by transcending his own school of therapy. Every young therapist attempts to perfect his skills by anchoring onto a single paradigm and becoming an expert technician of that particular school. Within the first five to ten years of practice—the so-called experiential evolution phase—the therapist finds that no single paradigm is suitable for treating all psychopathology. The therapist thus begins to appropriate techniques from other schools of psychotherapy, and by shifting paradigms, synchronizes himself with the patient’s mind. It is from this synchronization that all his techniques begin to evolve and an expert clinician can evolve into a master psychotherapist. The therapist who has transcended his school of psychotherapy now must transcend the field of psychotherapy itself. If he wants to address the patient’s existential issues as well, the therapist first has to come to terms with those issues himself. After all, the therapist can take the patient only so far as he himself has come. Life Witness demonstrates that this formative evolution phase of a therapist encompasses a broad education in literature, philosophy, and spirituality. Karasu ultimately concludes that therapists must find the meaning and purpose of life before they can cultivate an authentic self and become someone whose presence is itself therapeutic. Once this occurs, all "therapeutic messages" will naturally emanate from within.

This fascinating book presents the views of experienced therapists and counsellors on what is learnt about aspects of human nature from the many hours spent witnessing clients' stories. Contributors write about their observations on working with people whose suffering is associated with social marginalization, family breakdown, the gay community, the AIDS epidemic, the Holocaust, and with people in groups, those who have experienced disaster and personal trauma, or depression, and those who have murdered. The book takes us to some of the depths of human suffering in order to illustrate the value and impact of therapy, and some of the failings and disillusionment of therapy. The material provides insights and hypotheses bearing on the human condition itself, and the contributors do not avoid disclosing some of their own struggles, doubts and suffering.

Beginning in 1956, Stella Chess and Alexander Thomas tracked the lives of 133 children from infancy to young adulthood, examining in detail their psychological development over a twenty-five-year period. The result was the groundbreaking New York Longitudinal Study. This book, first published in 1984, presents a complete report of the study, including analyses of the data and exploration of such fundamental questions as gender differences, antecedents of adult behavior patterns, and factors that contribute to depression and other disorders. Special emphasis is given to the clinical evaluation and treatment of patients with behavioral abnormalities. The authors discuss key findings: the important role of parental guidance, the continuities and discontinuities across developmental stages, the crucial effects of temperament on psychological development, and the usefulness of a âeoegoodness of fitâe model for understanding the relationship between person and environment and for describing the evolution of behavior disorders.

Stephen Palmer is Joint award winner of the Annual Counselling Psychology Award for outstanding professional and scientific contribution to Counselling Psychology in Britain for 2000. `The editors' support for the integrative project is clear, but the book will hold its own with the sceptics too. I recommend it' - Counselling at Work This innovative and timely book examines the issues and ideas surrounding integration and eclecticism in a therapeutic context, and provides a detailed account of a wide range of approaches in use. Following an exploration of the origins of integrative and eclectic processes, 10 approaches are explained in detail. Chapters on each approach: describe its central concepts, assumptions and therapeutic goals; outline its view of how psychological disturbance is acquired, perpetuated and resolved; examine how the theory relates to practice - including examples of typical sessions and case studies; and consider which clients might benefit. Further chapters explore the implications of using integrative and eclectic approaches for training, supervision, for working in a time-limited context and from a multicultural perspective.

What exactly happens in psychotherapy, and when is it helpful? This look-behind-the-scenes shows how psychotherapy can be both scientific and imaginative, as the prominent psychiatrist, psychotherapist, and psychoanalyst Rainer M. Holm-Hadulla shows how success can be achieved with the flexible integration of different psychotherapeutic methods. Twelve narratives illustrate the psychotherapeutic treatment of patients suffering from the most frequent disorders requiring psychotherapy: adjustment, anxiety, personality, depressive, and psychotic disorders. The focus is on individuals in their social context, with their various biographies, life-situations, and creative potentialities. The reader witnesses the evolution of productive therapeutic alliances. Psychodynamic conflicts are resolved, behavioural alternatives become apparent, and existential creativity reveals itself as a fundamental psychotherapeutic principle.
