A Clinical Manual
This expanded and updated edition of a widely-used, practical guide to psychodynamic psychotherapy provides material that readers can apply immediately in their treatment of patients. It is built around a unique and proven approach that clearly teaches psychodynamic psychotherapy using three key steps - listening, reflecting, and intervening. These are applied to all aspects of treatment, and supported by core psychotherapeutic concepts such as evaluation, empathic listening, and setting the frame.
The Second Edition has been fully revised to reflect the latest developments in the field. While retaining the structure, clarity, and relevance that have made this one of the most popular texts in its field, the authors have added new research, a wealth of new exercises, and an educators' guide to help teachers and program directors make best use of the book in training programs. The result is an invaluable resource for those seeking to teach, understand, and practice psychodynamic psychotherapy.
