Description

Reviews

This text is designed to reach academic and clinical communities involved in delivering or understanding mental health care. It provides a complete work on psychotherapeutic humor from the clinician's approach, humor with children, adolescents, varying groups, humor as a diagnostic tool, the difference between humor and paradox, and what humor is and is not. Features: * The first book in this field to take a comprehensive, developmental multimodal approach to applied theory and practice of humor as a thoughtfully spontaneous psychotherapeutic intervention * The only reference material about humor that explores intervention failures as well as successes and cites principles for guiding therapists in their use of humor * A text that gives a comprehensive review of humor theory from 1800-1993

"This book is the most recent, most up-to-date, and most balanced book on humor yet available. I say balanced because it does not discuss humor in dry, droll terms, but rather integrates the serious with the funny facts of counseling...." -- Humor, Hypnosis and Health Quarterly
