Yet, those who treat and conduct research with anxious individuals know that interpersonal processes interact with anxiety symptoms.

History of Psychotherapy
History of Psychotherapy
Continuity and Change
Second Edition
Edited by John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP; Gary R. VandenBos, PhD; and Donald K. Freedheim, PhD



Published 20 years ago, the first edition of History of Psychotherapy (1992) is still considered the most comprehensive and authoritative resource on the subject.
Building on the success of its predecessor, this new edition provides timely updates to reflect both the continuity and change in psychotherapy and features additional theory, research, practice, and training. Focusing on critical turning points, 78 eminent authors examine the impact of social, cultural, and economic factors on the development of psychotherapy. Each chapter highlights the historical roots, current manifestations, and future directions of the field.
New to this edition are discussions on the emergence of multiculturalism, neuroscience, couples therapy, pharmacotherapy, spirituality and religion, and specialized research centers. Scholarly but engaging, comprehensive but accessible, this updated classic will prove ideal for students, practitioners, and libraries alike.
