Written from an eclectic, integrative point of view, this authoritative yet accessible text equips students and practitioners with theoretical and empirical knowledge of different psychotherapy and counseling approaches. Todd and Bohart, who together have a total of sixty years of experience teaching clinical psychology courses, offer a clear, understandable view of how each theoretical perspective regards the person, the persons problems, and how to help the person change. The fourth edition retains the psychotherapy and history components from previous editions and addresses current and future trends in professional psychology. New or updated topics include: assessment; professional, legal, and ethical issues; brief therapy; computerized treatment programs; Internet testing; online therapy; treatment guidelines and manuals and the controversies associated with them; radical behavior therapies; cultural and gender issues; expanding roles for psychologists in neuropsychology and primary health care; managed care; and developments in psychotherapy research and psychotherapy integration. Careful cross-referencing and clear connections between topics permit chapters to be read in any order. The authors maintain a Web site (http://homepage.mac.com/judithtodd/artboharttext/) with the very latest updates on psychotherapy theory integration, activities, downloadable chapter learning objectives, links to useful articles, and more.

In the last decade, neuropsychology has grown from a small subspecialty to a major component in the practice of clinical and medical psychology. This growth has been caused by advances in psychological testing (such as the Halstead-Reitan neuropsychological battery, as discussed in Chapter 5) that have made evaluation techniques in the field available to a wider audience, by advances in neuroradiol ogy and related medical areas that have enabled us to better understand the struc ture and function of the brain in living individuals without significant potential harm to those individuals, and by increased interest by psychologists and other scientists in the role that the brain plays in determining behavior. Many disorders that were believed by many to be caused purely by learning or environment have been shown to relate, at least in some cases, to brain dysfunction or damage. With the growth of the field, there has been increased interest in the work of neuropsychologists by many who are not in the field.
