Reviews

The book remains an extremely useful guide to the territory of existential therapies. It continues to set down the major historic and contemporary and debates, and to provide and invaluable map of the territory. -- Existential Analysis

As always with Mick's work this is a wonderfully clear, accessible and engaging book, and an excellent starting point for anyone who is interested in existential therapy. As well as providing historical context and an overview of the existential approach and how it can be applied to therapy, this second edition expertly weaves in newer developments in the field including the existential-phenomenological approach, and time-limited existential therapy. Existential therapies are also brought to life with a case study that runs the whole way through the book. Overall, a superb introduction and an important contribution to the field.


The second edition of Existential Therapies represents an important update of this important text. Mick Cooper respectfully examines the differences and similarities of the various major approaches to existential therapy. This should be required reading for all student and scholars in existential psychology.

Louis Hoffman, Saybrook University

Sympathetic, personal and modern writing with a firm guiding hand leading through the complex diversity of existential therapies. The second edition brings a good adjustment to the actual situation with a remaining dominance of the British (and English language) perspective. Lively and practical book with reflected literature access - a perfect introduction, a perfect refresher!

-- Alfried Langle
The book has been completely updated, and has much more material on the recent spread of existentialist therapy worldwide. The writing is very easy and approachable, with a real care for the ability of the readers to cope with difficult concepts. Strongly recommended. -- John Rowan
