Overview

The first book designed to teach the developing practitioner the core concepts and skills of short-term work, The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies has been revised and significantly enhanced in this second edition by the addition of an introductory section that addresses the most critical issues common to all models of psychotherapy, as well as a detailed review of motivational interviewing, a technique that focuses on increasing patient motivation and openness to change while decreasing ambivalence. Also new to this edition is a companion DVD, which provides master clinicians' insights and experience for five brief therapies -- cognitive, behavioral, solution-focused, interpersonal, and dynamic -- illustrating the essential techniques of these modalities in a concrete, compelling way.

The editors selected contributors with extensive experience in teaching brief therapy and challenged them to provide practical guidance enriched with numerous case vignettes and video examples of their work. The result is a work of unparalleled insight and utility. The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies offers clinicians the hands-on information and instruction necessary to learn and then integrate this increasingly important form of therapy into their practice.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
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.
