What People are Saying About This

Golnar A. Simpson
Reading Jon Frederickson's much needed book, one comes to an early awareness that his book is not only about learning to listen but it is also a skilled demonstration of how to talk so that people continue to listen. Through out the book, the author presents the complex dialectics of listening and talking from psychodynamic perspective with richness in theoretical and methodological content, empathic understanding of the human condition and an easy and enjoyable style of writing. The refreshing stance of promoting flexibility regarding the use of perspectives is a particularly welcomed feature of this thoughtful work. I highly recommend this book as a "must" for students and beginning practitioners and a treasure trove of thought provoking issues. -- (Golnar A. Simpson, D.S.W., BCD President-Clinical Social Work Federation)
Morris B. Parloff
Jon Frederickson, a gifted psychodynamic therapist and educator and former professional musician, has integrated his diverse skills and experience in his book Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, therby providing a unique treatment manual for all psychotherapists--novice and master alike. By highlighting key elements of the musician's approach to "listening" he has provided clinicians with a valuable model and vantagepoint from which to attend, with greater acuity, to the overt and covert patterns that may inhere in their patients' associations. -- (Morris B. Parloff, Ph.D. (Ret.) Chief, Psychosocial Treatments Research Branch, National Institute of Mental Health, Washington School of Psychiatry, Senior Faculty Member)
