Siang-yang Tan

Publisher Description

This text combines cutting-edge expertise with deeply rooted Christian insights to offer a comprehensive survey of ten major counseling and psychotherapy approaches. For each approach, Siang-Yang Tan provides a substantial introduction, assessing the approach's effectiveness and the latest research findings or empirical evidence for it.
