Abstract

Representing both classical and contemporary systems, the twelve theories of counseling and psychotherapy described herein are classified into sections on psychodynamic, existential-humanistic, cognitive-behavior, and systems and family perspectives. Each theory is presented systematically and covers historical and philosophical aspects as well as principles of assessment, treatment planning, implementations, and evaluation. The theories discussed are: Bordin's ego developmental theory, Adler's individual psychology, Berne's transactional analysis, Rogers' person-centered counseling, Perls' Gestalt therapy, Frankl's logotherapy, Thoresen's intensive counseling for self-efficacy, Ellis' rational emotive therapy, and Glasser's reality therapy. A unique section on systems and family perspectives also includes the works of Satir, Watzalwick, and Minuchin.
