From the Publisher
"Functional Analytic Psychotherapy is a clinically sophisticated approach that uses an in-session focus to assess and modify clients’ interpersonal problems as they manifest themselves in the therapy interaction. It is a powerful intervention that is not psychodynamic, experiential, cognitive-behavioral, or cognitive, but rather a clinical guideline for how to conduct good therapy. This volume demonstrates how the intervention can be used with different clinical populations, theoretical orientations, and modalities of treatment. Indeed, it is a transtheoretical approach that can be readily integrated into all approaches to treatment."

"Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy seem to have taken, 100 years after Medicine, the road of scientific explanations and treatments. Kohlenberg and Tsai since early 90s have been providing scientific analyses of clinical issues -such as emotion and memory, consciousness and the self, that were not commonly accepted issues by behavior community. The Practice of FAP shows how scientific precision and humanistic scope and depth can go together to enhance effective therapeutic change. This impressive book will improve indispensable for the FAP community that is rapidly growing worldwide and for all researchers and clinicians who are interested in the third wave CBT."

"Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) adapts radical behavioral principles to dealing with interpersonal problems in therapy in a humane and sensitive fashion. This lively compilation describes the way that FAP can be integrated into a variety of different treatments and applied to a variety of patient populations. The authors are to be congratulated for the breadth and power of their contribution. The basic principles they describe should improve anyone's practice."

"Psychotherapy integration has been the brass ring for which mental health researchers and theorists have striven but rarely reach with frequent reliance on“common factors” as the final explanation of how various treatment approaches are similar. Remarkably, Kanter, Tsai, and Kohlenberg have offered an actual method of integration with Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP). They have brought together a stunningly impressive group of authors to illustrate how the five principles of FAP can enhance a number of empirically based treatments by attending to the “here and now” in-session behaviors of clients. This book goes beyond speculation and presents a theoretically sound, clinically practical, and compelling approach to techniques that are based in behaviorism yet developed to enhance treatment regardless of theoretical orientation. This book should be on the shelf of every practicing clinician, as well as on the must read lists for students and psychotherapy researchers."

"This book will be incredibly informative and thought provoking for all clinicians who recognize the value of working in the "here-and-now" therapeutic relationship. Kanter, Kohlenberg and Tsai provide a broad range of chapters that seek to both integrate FAP in relation to other treatment approaches as well as provide additional information on specific populations and settings in a practical, clinically relevant manner."
