In Existential Humanistic Therapy, Kirk J. Schneider and Orah T. Krug discuss the history, theory, and practice of this distinctly American expression of existential therapy. Existential humanistic therapy welds the European existential philosophical heritage of self-inquiry, struggle, and responsibility with the American tradition of spontaneity, optimism, and practicality. Contrary to its common reputation as a purely intellectual form of therapy, this approach emphasizes not only the concepts of freedom and responsibility, but experiential reflection, in which clients experience their problems in session through a process of checking in with their affective and bodily sensations. The goal of this therapy is to help clients free themselves from self-imposed limitations and come to a deeper understanding of their authentic life goals, versus those imposed by others or by a rigid sense of self. This approach, which is becoming increasingly integrative, is applicable in a wide array of settings and diagnostic populations and, because of its emphasis on key contextual factors, is increasingly influential on the therapeutic profession as a whole. In this book, Dr. Schneider and Dr. Krug present and explore this approach, its theory, history, the therapy process, primary change mechanisms, empirical basis, and future developments. This essential primer to existential humanistic therapy, amply illustrated with case examples, is perfect for graduate students studying theories of therapy and counseling as well as for seasoned practitioners interested in understanding this approach.

This concise guide applies the principles of existential-humanistic (E-H) therapy to the practice of clinical supervision. With the skillful use of case examples-including transcripts and analyses of real sessions with a real clinical trainee-Orah T. Krug and Kirk J. Schneider utilize the key ingredients of the E-H therapeutic approach, including empathy, acceptance, and genuineness, to model how trainees can create safe, collaborative, and supportive relationships with clients. E-H supervisors help trainees learn to enter their clients' self-constructed worlds, using their own personal contexts to develop responsiveness to clients, while also cultivating the "presence" that enables genuine encounters and real therapeutic change. This book is part of the American Psychological Association Clinical Supervision Essentials Series, the central resource for understanding contemporary models of psychotherapy supervision. Each book presents a concise review of the history, principles, techniques, and processes of a particular approach to supervision, including detailed analysis of a single supervision session and discussion of evidence supporting the approach. These books are an indispensable guide for students learning how to supervise as well as practitioners seeking quick references to improve their own supervision skills. Book jacket.

This edition in the Theories of Psychotherapy series provides a brief and accessible survey of this popular, time-limited form of psychotherapy for specific functional problems. The author provides a historical overview of the approach; an outline of the cognitive therapeutic model and its central tenets, such as maladaptive schemas, automatic thoughts and cognitive distortions (e.g., maximization/minimization, fortune-telling, catastrophization); and an overview of evidence-based strategies, as well as "collaborative empiricism" in the therapeutic alliance. Cognitive Therapy examines the therapy's process, evaluates its evidence base and effectiveness, and suggests future directions in the development of the therapy.
