Summary: Thorough, complete, comprehensive.
Comment: If you enjoyed Sharf's text on Career Development, you will definately profit from this work on the theories of psychotherapies.

Sharf provides the reader/student/scholar with a clear-eyed, unbiased look at each of the main schools of thought. Fair and evenhanded treatment is given to each approach. Sharf starts each chapter off with a biography of the theorist, conceptualization of his/her paradigm, and detailed, comprehensive treatment of what the therapy process looks like under the auspices of this viewpoint.

This text has given me a very clear understanding and has even motivated me to look at several of the approaches more in depth as I consider my own approach to counseling.

Instructors will be pleased at the amount of information Sharf provides in this text, the companion study guide, and on the Info-trac. This book is well worth the money as it will give the practioner-to-be an excellent background on the craft of counseling.
