A practical guide to psychotherapy informed by existential ideas.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Reviews the book, Pragmatic Existential Counseling and Psychotherapy: Intimacy, Intuition, and the Search for Meaning by Jerold Lee Shapiro (see record [rid]2015-50704-000[/rid]). This book provides a practical and well-illustrated guide to a psychotherapeutic practice based on existential and relational principles. It may be of particular interest to novice counselors or psychotherapists who are wishing to develop a more vivid sense of therapy and who are interested in existential or humanistic insights. As a systematic guide to the specific features of an existential or existential–humanistic approach, it does not quite deliver. Nonetheless, it makes for an interesting read and a worthy addition to the literature in this field. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
