Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a remarkable and consise description of a complicated topic. The authors summarized the state of the field of short term dynamic therapy. They held no information back and identified the areas of controversy, particularly conflicting opinions and data on the use of confrontation in the Davanloo approach versus the approach preferred by McCullough and Alpert. Furthermore, the inclusion of EMDR as a dynamic treatment was inovative and exciting. Neborsky and Solomon's chapter on "Changing the Love Imprint" explained how EMDR and the STDP's may have a common therapeutic action, which was helpful to me as was their integration of attachment theory. Finally, David Malan's chapter on the science of outcome evaluation and what we might learn from his career was an inspiration to read. I hope this group continues to write and create more material for clinicians like this!

Format: Paperback
As a practicing psychologist, I am always looking for ways to improve the efficiency of psychotherapy. Not to satisfy managed care, but to alleviate the pain of my clients. All of us in clinical practice have encountered "difficult clients", those with whom what is helpful to many of our other clients just is not helpful. What does one do when traditional cognitive therapy is not helpful? In my experience, this is when a psychodynamic perspective is most useful. Such a perspective does not necessarily mean that years of psychoanalysis is required. Short-term psychodynamic psychotherapy (STPP)offers an alternative. The authors of this book provide the reader with an array of STPPs, varying from the more confrontive style originated by Davenloo, through "softer" modifications (but still focused), including one with a focus almost exclusively on conveying empathic understanding to the client (the first I had heard of what might be thought of as short-term Kohutian therapy). What I found most interesting was the inclusion in this volume of a chapter by Francine Shapiro on EMDR, which uniquely (but accurately, IMO) places EMDR in the short-term psychodynamic camp. I consider it a positive step to recognize that EMDR is the most non-intrusive (meaning non-interpretational) of the STPPs. Shapiro's language of "large T and small t traumas" fits in seamlessly with the primary theoretical underpinnings of these STPPs; namely, attachment theory and the developing infant/child.

Among other highlights in the book are chapters by David Malan, the pioneer in outcome research for STPP, and a fascinating chapter by Neborsky and Soloman offering the "missing link" in attachment theory (the "PASO", or primitive aggressive self organization).

Format: Paperback
This is a book that is bound to improve the psychotherapeutic skills of practitioners who read it. For those unfamiliar with recent developments in the dynamic short-term therapy movement, it convincingly dispels the concept of "non-specific factors" in treatment outcome. For those more familiar with the authors it reveals the pivotal foci to which they attend while using disparate appearing techniques in their treatments. Surprisingly, the reader would be hard pressed to find another volume that similarly stresses the importance of developing therapy techniques to fit one's personality instead of one's theoretical orientation. Michael Alpert's system focuses on the therapist's affection for the patient and the patient's response. Robert J. Neborsky presents Habib Davanloo's method of accessing defended impulses and feelings. Leigh McCullough's approach is to desensitize "affect phobia" (an expression becoming standard in the lexicon of psychotherapy). Marion F. Solomon has incorporated short-term theories and techniques for use in couples therapy. Francine Shapiro, whose eye movement desensitization techniques resulted in what initially appeared to be an almost purely behavioral treatment, here acknowledges the dynamic aspects of this method, recognizing that the significance of the trauma being desensitized is directly related to trauma suffered in early life attachments. There is frequent reference to the short-term work of Freud, Alexander and French, and others, putting this state of the art presentation in a clear historical perspective. The book concludes with a delightful chapter by David Malan, a pioneer in the short-term movement. His statistical references are fascinating rather than dry, citing study after study supporting the results of the dynamic short-term models.Read more ›

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By emanuel peluso on May 11, 2002
Format: Paperback
The recent no-name reviewer from Atlanta who attacked Short-Term Therapy for Long-Term Change's lack of research must have bought some bootleg copy that omitted its hundreds of endnotes and citations. Its dozens of pages of transcribed therapy sessions will hardly be dismissed as "anecdotes" by any mindful reader. The book's six contributors are tops in their fields. Calling them "cheerleaders," as no-name does, is a whooper bordering on delusion. This book is the best available overview of the latest breakthroughs in short-term psychotherapy available.

Format: Paperback
The problem with using advoates as authors is that you only get one side of the story. In the case of EMDR, for instance, there is research that says a) the eye movements are unnecessary and b) its effects do not last as long as Cognitive-Behavior Therapy based exposure procedures. This really undercuts the second part of the title of this book "for Long-Term Change". Stories and anecdotes are often entertaining but for true treatment help see a professional who reads the scientific research and is not a cheerleader for every fad that comes along.
