Most books covering individual therapeutic approaches are aimed at the trainee/student market.

This series, however, is concerned with advanced and advancing theory, offering the reader comparative and comparable coverage of a number of therapeutic approaches.

Aimed at professionals and postgraduates, Advancing Theory in Therapy will cover an impressive range of theories.

With full reference to case studies throughout, each book in the series will:

  • present cutting edge research findings
  • locate each theory and its application within its cultural context
  • develop a critical view of theory and practice.


"At last a book series that will help to make the ideal of effective Continuing Professional Development in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling more of a reality. Without being partisan or requiring an unrealistically high level of existing knowledge, the books offer a unique opportunity for experienced practitioners and advanced students to encounter the cutting edge of theory to their particular core theoretical model." - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex, UK
