Editorial Reviews

Mary I. Daly
This book provides a thorough overview of the primary purposes and goals of psychotherapy, with careful delineation of the principles and theory that guide the practice of psychotherapy. It begins with a general section on psychotherapy and a discussion of the important link between clinical practice and research. The second section focuses on establishing the therapeutic relationship; the third section addresses modes of communication that facilitate change. The fourth section reviews issues in termination.. The primary purpose is to lay out universal principles of psychotherapy. A second goal is to integrate up-to-date clinical research findings into a discussion of clinical practice. This book also incorporates information on managed care and brief treatment, emerging ethical concerns, and multicultural issues. The editor achieves his purposes. In clear and concise chapters, he systematically introduces the reader to the practice of psychotherapy and discusses relevant clinical and research data. The discussion is targeted at psychotherapists with backgrounds in psychology, social work, psychiatry, and counseling. Advanced clinicians will appreciate the wealth of references and the careful integration of theory, practice, and research data. Students and educators can find an organized discussion of the basics of psychotherapy with a thoughtful discussion of the principles of psychotherapy practice. This book includes a careful introduction to the theory and practice of psychotherapy. The four well organized sections detail the principles for handling the beginning, middle, and termination phases of psychotherapy. The editor highlights normative and unusual circumstances,such as voluntary and forced termination, and discusses relevant research studies. He grounds his text in a psychodynamic framework, but he infers that his general principles of psychotherapy can be applied to any theoretical model. In doing so, he avoids a full discussion of how theory generates varying guidelines of practice. For example, the editor seems to assume that all readers use the concept of transference. This comprehensive, well-organized text guides the reader into a clear overview of the practice of psychotherapy. For students of psychodynamic theories, the book provides an introduction to both the purpose and practice of clinical work, and fosters critical thought by incorporating data from clinical research. Educators and experienced clinicians are challenged to integrate theory and practice in light of research and are helped to think more systematically about their approach to psychotherapy from a psychodynamic perspective. In a modern milieu where various techniques and theories of therapy are hotly debated, this second edition reminds the reader that there are underlying constants which greatly influence the overall success of any school of psychotherapy, and that clinical research continues to be an important resource for improving the quality of psychotherapy.
