Counseling and Psychotherapy: Investigating Practice from Scientific, Historical, and Cultural Perspectives


About the Series

This innovative series is devoted to grasping the vast complexities of the practice of counseling and psychotherapy.

As a set of healing practices delivered in a context shaped by health delivery systems and the attitudes and values of consumers, practitioners, and researchers, counseling and psychotherapy must be examined critically.

By understanding the historical and cultural context of counseling and psychotherapy and by examining the extant research, these critical inquiries seek a deeper, richer understanding of what is a remarkably effective endeavor.
