Pilgrim, David, Richard Bentall, et al.
Straight Talking Guide to Psychological Treatments for Mental Health Problems

‘Psychological treatments’ is shorthand for a range of interventions, which are called ‘talking treatment’, ‘psychological therapy’, ‘counselling’ or ‘psychotherapy’. In this compact book, David Pilgrim explores the origins, trustworthiness and usefulness of these interventions and concludes with a comprehensive glossary describing over 20 different approaches to psychotherapy. The challenging content and accessible style both ensure that therapy practitioners, support workers, students and users of mental health services will be both informed and stimulated.
