"With the rapid, ongoing evolution of psychotherapy models amidst the growing diversity and complexity of contemporary life challenges, how are clinicians to determine which approaches are most effective in treating which problems with which populations? Clearly one size does not fit all. Fortunately, Jay Lebow, a highly respected clinical researcher and educator, has done a masterful job in presenting a lucid overview of the leading theories of psychotherapy, strategies of change, and intervention techniques at the forefront of the field. This outstanding volume is a must read for seasoned clinicians and trainees alike." ?Froma Walsh, PhD, Mose & Sylvia Firestone Professor, SSA & Dept. of Psychiatry, Co-Director, Center for Family Health, The University of Chicago LeBow's Twenty-First Century Psychotherapies provides a well-written, up to date survey of the theories and practices of psychotherapy that have stood the test of time and seem to be here to stay. A great strength is the chapter authors' inclusion of the evidence for each approach, since Evidence-Based Practice truly is a hallmark of the 21st Century. This is an outstanding resource that will enable readers to both understand therapy and implement it. It is a "must read" for every psychotherapist. ?Ronald F. Levant, Ed.D., A.B.P.P., Dean and Professor of Psychology University of Akron, 2005 President, American Psychological Association Twenty-First Century Psychotherapies offers a remarkably comprehensive, up-to-date, and scholarly examination of the dominant approaches to therapy. Written by leading and articulate experts in each intervention model, this book draws together the most forward thinking perspectives in individual, group, and couples/family therapy. This will be a treasured reference to novice and experienced clinicians alike and I expect it to be a much consulted companion to professionals for many years to come. ?Nadine J.
