“Dr. Shiner is an amazing teacher who is engaging, compassionate, and wise. She provides students with an authoritative introduction to five prominent models of psychotherapy. Case studies are vividly interwoven into the fabric of the course so that the concepts and ideas are consistently grounded in real lives. I predict students will come away with a far better understanding of psychotherapy as well as a deeper understanding of the human condition and psychological well-being.”
