    An overview of a dozen major styles of psychotherapy comparing different aspects of each The book is very academic and in general very dry It's abstract and academic feel does not give a good feel for the style; even still it gives a good overview of each style in technical terms I have the first edition text which differs from the second in that it includes Gestalt therapy as an independent therapy In the introduction to the second edition Messer explains that in the time since the first edition Gestalt therapy has waned and is hardly ever practiced as an independent therapy style; instead elements have been incorporated into other styles Also other therapies have been added including Post modern therapy which I have never heard of as a therapy in any other text Once again I never read the second edition but at first glance it seems the first edition is superior

    Textbook for class Good break down of the various theroretical orientation Covered all the big ones Repeated itself WAAAAAY too much in each chapter I suppose that got the point in but repition is not a strong tool in my book Not ueer friendly I think they call it gay affirming at all esp in the marriage therapies section damn heterocentrics when will you learn?Overall I'd reccommend as a text book unless you have one that doesn't do the above things and use the above caveats
