Through compelling case studies, Peven and Shulman invite the reader into their thoughts and feelings about their clients, their processes and treatment techniques, and their subsequent successes and failures.The authors describe a cognitive, constructivist, interpersonal, dynamic approach based primarily on the principles of Alfred Adlers Individual Psychology. The case studies represent several different DSM-IV diagnostic categories, and the authors offer their own theoretical perspectives and treatment methods for each category.With compassion, insight, and skill, the authors take complicated material and present it in a clearly written and easy to understand fashion.
