Overview

Written in clear, precise language by seasoned and respected experts in the field, the Concise Guide to Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: Principles and Techniques in the Era of Managed Care, Second Edition, provides concise, thoroughly updated coverage of all the major principles and important issues in psychodynamic psychotherapy, including concepts and techniques, initiation and termination of treatment, and patient evaluation and education. Four key chapters review resistance and defense, transference, countertransference, and dreams, furnishing a wealth of practical suggestions for the beginning therapist. A special chapter covers a host of practice issues not commonly addressed in the standard training curricula, including the office setting, suicidal and dangerous patients, and what to do when the therapist makes errors. This convenient reference source contains numerous tables and charts that highlight important points and relevant clinical material. This multipurpose guide also reviews data from efficacy and cost-effectiveness studies and emphasizes that psychodynamic psychotherapy remains an essential, effective part of mental health care even in the managed care world.

Developing expertise in psychodynamic psychotherapy is a lifelong endeavor. In that endeavor, this concise guide will become an invaluable reference to experienced and novice mental health professionals alike as they enhance their skill through these proven, effective techniques.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John K. Larson, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This softcover, paperback-sized book contains 15 pithy chapters on the basics of psychodynamic psychotherapy. It was designed to fit easily into a lab coat pocket and is clearly meant to serve as a ready reference to the topic. It was written by three psychiatrists, all faculty at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide practical, accessible information for psychiatrists and psychiatric residents that can be used in varied settings. It is meant to complement more detailed information found in lengthier psychiatric texts.
Audience: The targeted audience is psychiatrists and psychiatric residents, but this volume would also be useful to any mental health practitioner.
Features: The book covers such topics as basic principles, the prescription of psychotherapy, psychodynamic listening, beginning treatment, resistance, transference, countertransference, dreams, and termination. Each chapter is informed by the authors' knowledge of the resource limitations and time constraints faced by a psychotherapist in a managed-care environment. Each chapter is followed by a brief, up-to-date bibliography. The book also contains numerous tables, an appendix, a glossary, and a useful index. The entire handbook is organized for rapid reference.
Assessment: This little book admirably succeeds in its purpose and should find wide acceptance among practicing psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, and other mental health professionals.
