Editorial Reviews

Review


"[This book] is a marvelous "how-to" guide that teaches the reader the ins and outs of IPT. The prose style is clear and jargon-free. The clinical examples are numerous and beautifully illustrative of what to say and do. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about Interpersonal Psychotherapy."-- Glen O. Gabbard, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine


"This book, designed for busy practitioners, is an excellent distillation of the principles and methods entailed in conducting IPT in patients with depression, anxiety, eating, and borderline personality disorders. Practical, straightforward, pithy and very reader friendly, this book is a must read for students and clinicians. The best exposition of IPT to date with extraordinary clinical insights and practical guidance."-- A. John Rush, M.D., Professor of Clinical Sciences and Psychiatry, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center


"The Clinician's Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy provides practicing clinicians with what they need to know to actually do the treatment and provides a rich and easily accessible compendium of advances made in the treatment of special populations and other disorders. IPT is a powerfully successful clinical intervention; publication of the Quick Guide should help make it more accessible to the clinical practice community."-- Steven D. Hollon, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Vanderbilt University


"The book is very comprehensive and practical in scope. It is written in an interesting and stimulating style in which the authors have successfully distilled the core skills and principles of IPT."--Durrants


"The Clinicians Quick Guide to Interpersonal Psychotherapy embodies the ethos of interpersonal psychotherapy; the authors take a strong clinical stance, make the material feel clinically relevant, and yet ground all of their assertions in empirical evidence. This book represents a useful and welcome addition to the interpersonal psychotherapy library"--American Journal of Psychiatry


"The authors of this book are pioneers of IPT. They have now written an accessible guide for busy clinicians. The book is very comprehensive and practical in scope. It is written in an interesting and stimulating style in which the authors have successfully distilled the core skills and principles of IPT." --The Psychologist


"I hope that with just 162 pages of well-written and easily digestible text, many general clinicians will pick up and read this book and see the need to develop IPT in their own service...With all the applications, the book clearly describes how to adapt standard IPT to the particular issues of those cases. And most of the descriptions of the techniques and applications are followed by excellent case examples that really bring the techniques to life."--Psychological Medicine

"...a valuable tool for training in IPT...intended as book for busy clinicians who have some exposure to IPT but who lack the time to read more detailed manuals and need a a reference book for practice. This goal is accomplished admirably. [The authors] are also deserving of praise for setting a standard to which other authors should aspire: They have successfully integrated a clinically relevant text with a strong evidence base. This text will be extremely useful for evidence-based social workers practicing in settings that address a range of mental health issues. Furthermore, because it is clear, concise, and applicable to common practice problems it will be a useful text in practice classes."--Research on Social Work Practice

16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Adefolake on September 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book gave me an idea of what to do to conduct IPT. It is definitely not comprehensive and detailed, but it starts you on your way. I had to dive into conducting therapy with patients with very little instruction prior. This book helped me quickly find what I needed to focus on in therapy and how it should be structured so that I could jump into conducting therapy as prepared as possible. It is truly a quick and useful guide for beginning therapists in IPT, however, I believe that a more comprehensive text (which, I believe, is available by these authors) is also necessary to truly understand IPT and the techniques associated with it.

I found this book informative and very useful. I find it amazing that one just needs to have someone take trouble with one, give undivided attention and tell one that there is hope and all starts to come right. Or am I wrong?
