What People are Saying About This
Spiegel and colleagues provide the current how to for psychotherapy in a variety of disorders heretofore not a target for this therapeutic approach: Posttraumatic Stress Disorders; Psychosis and Personality Disorders; and the Medically Ill. In addition, conceptual frameworks for understanding and implementing psychotherapy in these diverse groups are advanced. The gains in decreased mental morbidity, enhanced social functioning, improved management and acceptance of illness, and impressive cost offset and cost effectiveness of well formulated psychotherapy are carefully documented. Efficacy and Cost-Effectiveness of Psychotherapy can be read with profit by psychiatrists and other mental health professionals alike. It is the state of the art in clear, concise language with important examples of its direct applicability in the clinic setting. The book is invaluable for teachers and clinicians who want to advance their learning of psychotherapy with stress-related disorders that abound in their practice. Our thanks to these authors for their thoughtful analyses and formulations.
The book not only contains well-referenced research-based discussions on efficacy and cost effectiveness but also offers theory along with practical instructions for providing effective treatment. Each chapter is followed by an extensive set of references allowing further investigation if desired by the reader.... I highly recommend this volume to clinicians and health care administrators genuinely concerned about providing effective, efficient mental health care.
