Praise for the first edition:
'What a find this book is! For me, certainly, but also for any student, practitioner, teacher, or researcher in the field...perhaps even for the thoughtful consumer, or indeed any onlooker interested in the state of the art today.' - Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
'It fills a real gap for all who would like a straightforward introduction to the different models of psychopathology regardless of whether they adopt a psychodynamic, humanistic or cognitive behavioural approach...Clearly and accessibly written, with case examples that bring the theory to life, this is a highly recommended book.' - Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
