"This is the training manual that teachers and practitioners of short-term dynamic therapy have been eagerly anticipating. It is the first psychodynamically oriented volume that expertly guides the novice through emotion-focused, time-sensitive psychotherapy in an explicit, step-by-step fashion. The manual is enhanced by very useful exercises that allow therapists to try out their interventions and compare them to the authors' expert responses. This volume represents a new and exciting development in the teaching, learning, and practice of psychodynamic/integrative therapy in general, and brief psychotherapy in particular."--Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Dean, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University
"This is a treatment manual with a number of fabulous characteristics: it takes the astute clinical observations of psychodynamic therapists and sets them within modern principles of learning and behavioral change; it draws from the best of the behavior therapy treatments for phobias; it is beautifully clear and easy to follow; and it has comprehensive learning exercises at the end of each chapter to help the clinician actually learn how to apply the treatment in clinical practice. I plan to have my students read it."--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Washington
"This carefully reasoned and researched manual starts with the simple assumption that many people are afraid of their own emotions, offers easy ways to identify whatever is being expressed or even suppressed, and explains clearly the authors' suggestions for treatment."--Donald L. Nathanson, MD, The Silvan S. Tomkins Institute and Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Jefferson Medical College
