Overview

Acknowledging the primacy of the whole person, Resolving Difficult Clinical Syndromes: A Personalized Psychotherapy Approach takes into account all of the complexities of human nature-family influences, culture, neurobiological processes, unconscious memories, and so on-illustrating that no part of human nature should lie outside the scope of a clinician's regard. Part of a three-book series, Resolving Difficult Clinical Syndromes: A Personalized Psychotherapy Approach provides you with a unique combination of conceptual background and step-by-step practical advice to guide your treatment of Axis I clinical disorders.

Detailed case studies are provided throughout the text to illustrate the strategies of personalized psychotherapy for: Mood-Related Syndromes: Dysthymic, Major Depressive, and Bipolar Disorders, Acute, Post-Traumatic, and Generalized Anxiety Syndromes, Anxiety-Related Psychological Syndromes: Phobic, Dissociative, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, Anxiety-Related Physical Syndromes: Somatoform and Conversion Disorders, Cognitive Dysfunction Syndromes: Substance-Related and Schizophrenia-Spectrum Disorders. Destined to become an essential reference for trainees and professionals, this book makes a revolutionary call to return therapy to the natural reality of each patient's life, seamlessly guiding you in understanding the personality and treatment of the whole, unique, yet complex person who exhibits a notable clinical syndrome.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[Provides] an excellent and thoughtfully constructed model."
—John Edward Ruark (PsycCRITIQUES, February 2008)

"Theodore Millon and his colleague Seth Grossman have been key players in the assessment and treatment of personality disorders for decades. They accurately describe the current state of affairs in psychotherapy practice, in which therapists trained in and committed to a single approach, tend to observe patients through only one lens and to adopt a one-size-fits-all strategy for treatment. This volume definitely made me look forward to its promised successors." (PsycCRITIQUES, February 27, 2008)
