Introducing Psychotherapy: A Graphic Guide Reviews
Serves its purpose perfectly as a brief and clear introduction to a complicated subject. Exactly what I needed!
Too much information to fit in too few pages coming from someone badly qualified to speak on the subject. You have the history, the classifications and even HOW to chose a therapist.
I've never read one of these Graphic Guide books before, but I thought the premise sounded interesting. As a more fun or accessible introduction to some complicated subjects I was eager to try 'Introducing Psychotherapy: A Graphic Guide.'However, despite starting off fairly promisingly with some historical background, it wasn't long before I got the feeling that I was just reading a really long list of different types of psychotherapy. This was interesting for comparing the pros and cons of different types of psychotherapy, but the format of the book didn't allow it to go into enough detail about these different types. As a result, it soon became something of a tedious read, that no well placed picture could rescue.That being said, I do feel that this idea has potential, but just that it was too restricted by the format it was placed in. The book tries to give an overview of too many different things, perhaps it would have been better if just a few key areas of psychotherapy had been focused on, allowing for far more detail into those areas.
Es una introducción, muy general, sobre las técnicas de psicoterapia. Se hace un recorrido empezando por el psicoanálisis - Freud no sólo parió ideas perturbadas sobre lo fálico - hasta llegar a las terapias complementarias. No entra en detalles, es una introducción, repito. Lo mejor, y la razón por la que considero que merezca la pena leerlo, si se tiene interés en el tema, es que cada página es una viñeta, lo cual lo hace todo más divertido.
This one I borrowed form the library where I'm studying counselling. So far it's great, very easy to read especially for someone like me who has a billion things going on right now. It's not difficult to get you're head around the style of writing, it's very straight forward and it includes some comical cartoons which are refreshing to see in a book of this nature. Tahlya
Excellent introduction to different kind of psychotherapies and alternative therapies.
Not a universally useful introduction.
Excellent little cartoon book outlining all general topics and meanings in conventional and alternate therapies
Great little introduction to psychotherapy. I am a big fan of the Introducing series when you want an entertaining overview of a topic in a few hours!
I love the graphics series! So much better to read in person than on kindle as well. Perfect for AS level (onwards) for students of psychology. Lota of factual information, so not so good for an easy read tho.
