An interdisciplinary, critical examination of a range of psychodynamic and cognitive approaches to the analysis and treatment of common disturbances in ``self-concept.'' Discusses problems in such areas as self-esteem, self-perception, identification, assertiveness, and sociophobia. The theories and methods of the prevailing psychodynamic ethos are examined from a philosophic view and compared with alternative accounts drawn from cognitive and behavioral learning theory. Furthermore, these theories are continually tested against ``live'' evidence from clinical case studies, psychometric investigations and original research on psychopathology and the nature of pyschotherapeutic processes. Also includes verbatim transcripts and therapists' commentaries from different types of treatment and therapy, plus extensive and detailed cross-referencing among the separate contributions.
