The great Russian psychologist L. S. Vygotsky has long been recognized as a pioneer in developmental psychology.

The Vygotsky who emerges from these pages can no longer be glibly included among the neobehaviorists. In these essays he outlines a dialec... View more info

This important book explores a new direction that can enable therapists of any orientation to better understand and help their patients. While psychoanalysis has traditionally been seen as a world apart from cognitive-behavioral therapy and many other psychotherapeutic approaches, recent developments in the field are changing that. Relational theory, in emphasizing how relationships shape personality, diverges in key ways from traditional psychoanalytic assumptions and therapeutic practices. At the same time, it preserves, and even extends, the depth of understanding of human experience and ps... View more info

Hailed by Jerome Frank as "the best book that exists on the subject, today and for the foreseeable future," Irvin D. Yalom's The Theory and Practice of Group Psychotherapy has long been the standard text in its field.
