Summary "Designed especially for students and mental health professionals in the early stages of their careers, this primer is a practical guide to psychotherapy. Short and concise, it addresses virtually all questions that a neophyte therapist might have. The author presents the basics in a clear and succinct way, with special emphasis on techniques and clinical examples." "The second edition of A Primer for Beginning Psychotherapy employs the same convenient question-and-answer format used in the first edition, while expanding the range of topics. For this edition, Dr. Goldstein has included a section on the predominant contemporary schools of thought. The book offers a wealth of information that will prove of great value to both the novice and the experienced professional."--BOOK JACKET
