"This book is a brilliant master class. It demonstrates how to work collaboratively with patients safely, compassionately, and effectively to achieve successful outcomes."
David Malan, DM, FRCPsych, author of Individual Psychotherapy and the Science of Psychodynamics
"An incredibly useful book . . . Offers crystal clear and highly practical therapy techniques with plenty of transcript examples. Good for new and advanced practitioners of any therapeutic orientation."
Leslie Greenberg PhD, author of Emotion-Focused Therapy
"The multiple clinical transcripts are inspiring, helpful, and often tremendously moving. No one does a better job explaining how and when to focus on emotions, anxiety, and defenses or in integrating psychotherapeutic technique with the latest research on neurobiology, attachment, and emotion. Co-Creating Change deserves to be read by both novice and experienced psychotherapists alike."
Stephen E. Finn, PhD, founder, Center for Therapeutic Assessment, Austin, Texas
"Co-Creating Change is an invaluable source book for all therapists wanting to do work that is highly collaborative and deeply affecting. From a solid base in theory and research, Jon Frederickson deals with the nitty-gritty of therapy, outlining treatment strategies and interventions that can help therapists increase their effectiveness across a wide spectrum of patients." --Patricia Coughlin, Ph.D, Faculty, University of New Mexico; Author: Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy

The Author, Jon Frederickson, is a very clear thinker and he lays out the psychodynamic model he uses transparently and simply in this book. What's more, you and your client/patient share the same language and can really look at the defenses that are creating his/her suffering. The therapeutic work is experiential in the consulting room. Change happens in the "now" but the insights that can be realized through the model laid out in this book are life changing.
Jon reads all the literature on neuroscience and that research is laid down in this book (with copious references) to make the method more understandable. Buy this book! You won't be sorry and neither will your clients. My goal is to, as Jon says, "make every statement I make invite the patient to co-create a relationship for change with me."
Much easier to read and grasp than Davanloo's own books, but, like with Davanloos' books, I'm left missing a bit more cohesion and perhaps introductory background behind the presented techniques, presenting the roots of the techniques in attachment theory, etc.; like Davanloos books, Jon goes pretty straight to the action, which of course is in keeping with ISTDP. :)
I also heartily recommend the author's earlier book, Learning to Listen from Multiple Perspectives, as well as his instruction videos and audio tapes.
