Integrating the work of Reich, Masterson, and Jung, Whole Therapist, Whole Patient is a step-by-step guidebook for professionals to learn about the psychology of their patients and conduct treatment in a dynamic way. This text combines Reich's character analyses, Masterson's work on personality disorders, and Jung's dream analyses to create a clear typology of character types that therapists can use to understand themselves and their patients. Also included are case management techniques and guidance for working with difficult patients. In addition, readers can turn to the book's online resources to access a downloadable patient package, case presentation guide, and psychological history form.
