The classic work on group psychotherapy
Hailed by Jerome Frank as "the best book that exists on the subject," Irvin D. Yalom and Molyn Leszcz's The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy has been the standard text in the field for decades.
In this completely revised and updated sixth edition, Dr. Yalom and his collaborator Dr. Molyn Leszcz draw on a decade of new research as well as their broad clinical wisdom and expertise. Each chapter is completely updated in accordance with the most recent developments in the field. There are new sections throughout, including discussions of mindfulness, CBT, modern analytic approaches, psychoeducational groups, group therapy for veterans, and group therapy for psychological trauma.
At once scholarly and lively, this is the most up-to-date, incisive, and comprehensive text available on group psychotherapy.
