From the Publisher"In an era of managed care delivery systems which focus on both clinical quality and cost effectiveness, Austad has sought to examine the efficacy and ethics of long-term psychotherapy. She has succeeded in writing a book which will be a worthwhile resource for all current practitioners, regardless of their theoretical orientation and practice patterns." --Jeffrey I. Bragman, CEO, Health Marketing and Management, Healthcare Consultant
"Should be required reading for everyone who practices psychotherapy in the 1990s. Of all active professionals in the field today, Carol Shaw Austad alone can lay claim to such fearless clarity of vision and old-fashioned common sense." --Steven E. Salmony, psychological consultant, Department of Social Services, State of North Carolina
"Carol Shaw Austad has written a truly provocative book for the modern mental health practitioner attempting to survive in the rapidly changing world of mental health care reimbursement. Austad 'jars' the reader out of firmly held preconceptions to allow them to 'see' the opportunities in a more flexible view of mental health treatment. Yet, she also is not 'blind' to the pitfalls of many of the new mental health managed care systems." --Louis J. DeStefano, mental health director, Community Health Center, Inc., Middletown, CT
"Is Long-Term Psychotherapy Unethical? raises some of the most crucial questions confronting psychology today." --William H. Berman, associate professor of psychology, Fordham University, and president of BHOS, Inc.
