Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"....Viewers will find Treating Time Effectively informative, particularly trainees just learning the art of effective therapy....Treating Time Effectively is lively....will hold full attention of trainees and of others interested in a detailed, thoughtful examination of what can occur during a first psychotherapy session." —Andrew I. Schwebel, Ph.D. in Crisis Intervention

"I am impressed with what I viewed. Dr. Budman has an incisive way of preparing the psychotherapist for the new era of managed competition by not only imparting brief therapy skills, but also facilitating the attitudinal changes that must occur for future success. His approach is doctor-to-doctor: as a master therapist, he is communicating effectively with other psychotherapists who eagerly grasp that their colleague has much of importance to convey. Dr. Budman is undoubtedly the most important trainer in an era where retraining of all psychotherapists is a must for survival." —Nicholas A. Cummings, Ph.D., Litt.D., Foundation for Behavioral Health

"Focused time effective treatment skills are a very important component of every therapist's armamentarium. Simon Budman has a long and very positive track record in teaching this skill. His videotape is an excellent vehicle to reach those many therapists who cannot attend seminars and yet must have this skill. I highly recommend the tape." —Ian Shaffer, M.D., Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Value Behavioral Health

"Lively and easy to watch....The taped therapy session is an excellent teaching device....Emotionally gripping....Watching a master clinician helps the theory come alive..." —Clara E. Hill, Ph.D.
