… The argot in this volume is relatively simplistic for the laymen to comprehend and any concept that seems advanced is elucidated. I recommend “The Psychotherapy Handbook” for anyone who is indecisive about where to seek psychological help as well as for folks, like myself, who are avid readers of psychology books.
