The ten chapters are written in a well-organized, clear, and readable style. Overall, the author presents a good synthesis of concepts, therapy techniques, and research. However, at times, discussion of therapy techniques and coverage of the relevant literature appear to be a bit cursory. For instance, developmental theory and research supporting the application of particular strategies are not comprehensively discussed, as developmental considerations never really progress beyond the idea that one needs to "concretize" interventions. Also, the frequent use of quotations might be distracting to some readers.
