Overview

The groundbreaking text The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies, addressing a treatment modality in increasing demand, has now been released in a new edition, thoroughly updated, revised, and expanded to include rich material for learning and teaching the "how to" of brief psychotherapy. This new edition is grounded in research and meticulously referenced; at the same time, its style is hands-on and its focus utterly pragmatic. • This is the only book presenting expert video demonstrations of the major brief psychotherapy models. The DVD depictions vividly illustrate characteristics that distinguish the various forms, so that viewers can see how the different therapies look and sound in practice -- a terrific teaching and learning tool.• The DVD presents master clinicians' insights and experience for five brief therapies -- cognitive (Judith Beck, Ph.D.), behavioral (Edna Foa, Ph.D.), solution-focused (Brett Steenbarger, Ph.D.), interpersonal (Scott Stuart, M.D.), and dynamic (Hanna Levenson, Ph.D.) -- illustrating the essential techniques of these modalities in a concrete, compelling way.• Because the contributors were selected for their extensive experience in teaching and training in brief therapy, they are uniquely qualified to provide highly practical and effective information about their chosen approaches. The case vignettes and clinical strategies are plentiful.• A chapter on motivational interviewing, a technique used to heighten patient engagement in the brief psychotherapeutic process, has been added.• The new opening chapter presents a concise review of factors common to all successful psychotherapies.• The book addresses the six most common forms of brief psychotherapy in depth, examines combined therapy, cross-cultural issues, and evaluation of trainee competence, and ends with a chapter in which the editors provide a highly readable, astute overview and synthesis of this complex material.

Teachers who strive to provide their students and trainees with a working sense of brief therapy beyond theory, and students who long for that down-to-earth knowledge, will be grateful for The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brett C. Plyler, M.D.(Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description: Part of the Core Competencies in Psychotherapy series, this book focuses on six brief psychotherapeutic modalities. As a second edition, it includes new chapters on essential ingredients for successful psychotherapy and on motivational interviewing. The major change, however, is the addition of a DVD showing a master clinician demonstrating each of the different therapies discussed in the book.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate the developing practitioner on short term psychotherapies.
Audience: It is intended for any clinician interested in learning about brief psychotherapies.
Features: The book begins with common factors in successful therapies before discussing motivational interviewing as a brief psychotherapy. The next section covers six key brief therapies: cognitive, behavioral, solution-focused, interpersonal, psychodynamic, and couples. Each of these is concise and informative. The chapter on medications and brief psychotherapy is particularly good, as is the synthesis of doing brief psychotherapies at the end of the book.
Assessment: This is an excellent introduction to brief psychotherapies. It gives you the flavor and feel of each individual treatment modality without favoring one style over another. The DVD is a great supplement, and it shows multiple, unscripted sessions. Though some of the technical aspects of the filming could use work, it is so helpful for beginning practitioners to see how a master clinician conducts a session. I also liked beginning the book with the section on building a foundation for successful therapy and the addition of the chapter on motivational interviewing. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about any of the brief psychotherapies.
