New Books in the Library

We have some new books in the library.  We'll be getting copies of all the textbooks being used this term over the next few weeks. 

This book is not a textbook and can be checked out for 3 weeks:

Interpersonal Process in Therapy: An Integrative Model  by Edward Teyber and Faith Holmes McClure

This is from the review on Amazon:

"This book provides a very articulate approach to being with clients in the room. It integrates psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and family systems approaches but most importantly demonstrates a way of being with clients in session that is genuine but also challenges clients to explore their process. The emphasis on the therapist’s use of present process is critical but often not articulated in books for beginning therapists. This book allows for the beginning therapist to establish their own style while incorporating the components of the interpersonal process. Students love it!"
