Most common problems people bring to therapy. It is important to select the approach or approaches likely to be most effective for you and your specific problem. Difficulties such as a troubled marriage, a painfully shy child, or a severe depression will respond best to different kinds of therapy. The recommendations made here rest on up-to-date research and the results of The National Survey of Psychotherapists, an ambitious project undertaken by the authors and based.

On the clinical opinions of close to 1000 therapists from across the nation. Included are problems in living (marital problems, parent-child conflicts, family problems, relationship problems, problems at work or school, bereavement); emotional and behavior problems of childhood and adolescence (anxiety, hyperactivity, childhood depression, obsessive-compulsive behavior, bed-wetting, eating disorders); and psychiatric disorders (ranging in severity from alcoholism.

Substance abuse, depression, panic attacks, stress problems, and sexual problems to obsessive-compulsive disorder and schizophrenia). Complete with actual case histories and nationwide listings of information organizations and therapist referral sources, The Consumer's Guide to Psychotherapy is a reassuring and indispensable resource for anyone's bookshelf.
