About this book

This title combines the many schools of thought on psychotherapy into one reader-friendly guide that coaches psychotherapists through the various techniques needed as the field expands. Unlike any other book on the market, this text considers all of the simultaneous advances in the field, including the neurobiology of emotions, the importance of the therapeutic relationship, mindfulness meditation, and the role of the body in healing. Written with genuine respect for all traditions from CBT to psychodynamics, the book unifies views of psychopathology and cure based on the notion of the mind-brain as an organ of affect regulation. The book accounts for the tasks that characterize psychotherapist activity in all therapies, how they are performed, and how they result in therapeutic change. The book also reviews the various pathologies seen in general practice and guides the reader to the specific therapist-patient interactions needed for their resolution.
With its big-picture focus on clinical practice, Psychotherapy: A Practical Guide is a concise resource for students, psychotherapists, psychologists, residents, and all who seek to integrate what is new in psychotherapy.

Reviews

“This book would be most beneficial for mental health professionals who use psychotherapeutic intervention strategies as their primary treatment modality for various pathologies. Specifically, the book targets experienced clinicians, such as psychologists and psychotherapists, as well as those just entering the field, such as master of social work students in training and interns and residents in clinical psychology doctorate programs and related fields who are interested in staying abreast of the latest advances in psychotherapeutic techniques.” (Michael S. Goldsby, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
