What People are Saying About This

Steven S. Sharfstein

This wonderful textbook confirms that psychotherapy in its theory, practice, and research is alive and well. Psychiatric residents should specially appreciate his textbook as they learn the craft and science of psychotherapy to complement their growing skills as biological- based clinicians. (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)

Lina Cassandra Vawter

This book is an excellent reference for residents, therapists, psychologists, and practicing psychiatrist who wishes to fortify and expand his or her knowledge of psychotherapeutic interventions, their theoretical bases, and current advances in exploration of their neurobiological correlate. (Psychiatric Services)

Lisa A. Mellman

Glen Gabbard's Textbook of Psychotherapeutic Treatments is a timely and valuable antidote to the common current belief that medication is the panacea for psychiatric patients. Covering theory, technique, indications and efficacy, his comprehensive review of a full range of psychotherapies is just what trainees and practicing psychiatrists need to help them achieve the competency in psychotherapy now mandated for psychiatry residencies by the Residency Review Committee. The rich examples and vignettes, evidence-based efficacy data and additional sections on combined treatments provide a road map for clinicians and are a boon to the field.
