Therapy [pdf], Steven Hayes and ACT (also), Marsha Linehan and DBT (also [pdf] and also [pdf]), Joseph Weiss and Control Mastery Theory (also), Eugene Gendlin and Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy (also).

For a more accessible (IMHO) presentation of Gendlin's Focusing than his own book on the subject, look up the work of his student, Ann Weiser Cornell. Cornell has also done some innovative work taking Focusing in new directions (see her amazing book _The Radical Acceptance of Everything_).

Focusing is the form of psychotherapy that seems the most "right" to me.
