The classic work on group psychotherapy

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

In this completely revised and updated fifth edition, Dr. Yalom and his collaborator Dr. Molyn Leszcz expand the book to include the most recent developments in the field, drawing on nearly a decade of new research as well as their broad clinical wisdom and expertise.

New topics include: online therapy, specialized groups, ethnocultural diversity, trauma and managed care.

At once scholarly and lively, this is the most up-to-date, incisive, and comprehensive text available on group psychotherapy.
