The second edition of Existential Therapies represents an important update of this important text. Mick Cooper respectfully examines the differences and similarities of the various major approaches to existential therapy. This should be required reading for all student and scholars in existential psychology.
Sympathetic, personal, and modern writing, which guides its reader with a firm hand through the complex and diverse world of existential therapy. The second edition brings a good adjustment to the actual situation with a remaining dominance of the British (and English language) perspective. Lively and practical book with reflected literature access – this is a perfect introduction, a perfect refresher!
The book has been completely updated, and has much more material on the recent spread of existentialist therapy worldwide. The writing is very easy and approachable, with a real care for the ability of the readers to cope with difficult concepts. Strongly recommended.
The book remains an extremely useful guide to the territory of existential therapies. It continues to set down the major historic and contemporary and debates, and to provide and invaluable map of the territory.
This is a great book for students and practitioners, informative and accessible
An excellent resource for teaching existential therapies. I highly recommend it!
