" I hope that this book, mainly an introduction to students in the mental-health professions, will help to remove at least some of the hurdles that commonly obstruct them in approaching the complex and demanding subject of psychotherapy. The general objectives of the book: [1] to make the concepts of psychotherapy more understandable. To this end I have used the term psychotherapies in the sense that there are several forms of psychotherapy treatment which can be distinguished from one another according to their goals, techniques, and target of intervention......[2] to minimise the differences between schools of psychotherapy and to emphasise the features they have in common..........[3] to draw a relationship between research and clinical practice.....[4] to guide the trainee in his reading..." -- from the preface to the first edition page V.
