This contemporary introduction provides a comprehensive survey of past and present existential ideas, philosophers & practice. Darren Langdridge makes existential therapy accessible through clear language, numerous case studies, chapter summaries, activities and further reading lists.

The three parts cover all the key areas taught on existential therapy courses, from the fundamental theory of - and key figures in - the approach, to its application in practice, using illustrative case studies. The final section develops contemporary cross-cutting issues in existential therapy, including the role of language/narrative, power and politics, and evaluation research.
