Bringing together in a comprehensive volume a number of divergent views on psychological treatments! This highly regarded text contrasts eight major theoretical perspectives on psychological evaluation and intervention using a single case study. The case--a thirteen-year-old adolescent male named Vince Chandler--is offered as the unifying element running across the several paradigms. D'Amato and Rothlisberg's unique comparative approach successfully highlights the benefits and potential problems of the intervention techniques available today. Additionally, it gives students important insights into the thought processes by which experts in human services come to their conclusions about what is helpful to know in order to do what is best to help another.
