Highly Commended, BMA Medical Book Awards 2013

Sensitively updated and revised for modern practice, Anthony Storr's legendary work continues to be an indispensible introductory text for aspiring psychotherapists.

Professor Jeremy Holmes, a friend and colleague of Anthony Storr's and himself a leading psychotherapist, has updated this accessible and humane account of the practice of psychotherapy to include:

• Integrative psychotherapeutic approaches
• Revised classification of personality types
• New sections on selection and assessment
• Consideration of evidence-based psychodynamic practice
• Broadened appeal to the full range of mental health professionals

Retaining Anthony Storr's wisdom, vision, and classic approach, whilst bringing the text totally up to date, this will be a cornerstone volume for beginner and experienced psychotherapists alike. It will also appeal to psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, nurses, social workers, counsellors, and other mental health professionals.


"One of the strengths of this book is the way in which it meets with the reader's everyday concerns. ... concise, practical, and written in an accessible and dynamic way. As such, it would appeal to anyone interested in psychotherapy, but may be especially useful as an introductory text to core trainees and higher trainees undertaking psychodynamic cases."
Lauren Wilson, St. John’s Hospital, Livingston, UK in The Psychiatrist
