About this book

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Research: Evidence-Based Practice and Practice-Based Evidence continues the important work of the first book published in 2009 by Humana Press (Handbook of Evidence-Based Psychodynamic Psychotherapy:  Bridging the Gap Between Science and Practice).  This landmark title presents in one volume significant developments in research, including neuroscience research, in psychodynamic psychotherapy by a team of renowned clinician-researchers. The demand for ongoing research initiatives in psychodynamic psychotherapy from both internal and external sources has increased markedly in recent years, and this volume continues to demonstrate the efficacy and effectiveness of a psychodynamic approach to psychotherapeutic interventions in the treatment of psychological problems.  The work in this volume is presented in the spirit of ongoing discussion between researchers and clinicians about the value of specific approaches to specific patients with specific psychiatric and psychological problems. Multiple forms of treatment interventions have been developed over the past fifty years, and this volume makes clear, with firm evidence, the authors’ support for the current emphasis on personalized medicine.  Groundbreaking and a major contribution to the psychiatric and psychologic literature, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Research: Evidence-Based Practice and Practice-Based Evidence provides firm grounding for advancing psychodynamic psychotherapy as a treatment paradigm.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“There are enough that are truly excellent that anyone interested in the current state of scientific knowledge on psychoanalysis and other psychoanalytic treatments would do well to consult this particular volume. … More important, psychoanalytic therapists will come away from this book with practical pieces of empirical knowledge that they can use to improve the effectiveness of their clinical efforts … . this book likely was written to speak to another audience––clinicians and researchers … .” (John S. Auerbach, Psychoanalytic Psychology, Vol. 31 (2), 2014)

“It is a timely, smart, sophisticated, and substantial contribution to the growing momentum of the psychodynamic movement toward more vocally reasserting its power, relevance, vitality, and value in today’s highly competitive and dollar-driven mental health marketplace. Reading this expertly edited volume is not only informative regarding the current state of the art of psychodynamic psychotherapy research but would also serve as a superb introduction for graduate students, psychiatric residents, and curious laypersons to the basic principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy itself.” (Stephen A. Diamond, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 57 (50), December, 2012)

“This book presents the latest studies on the efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy and the therapeutic action involved in the process. … It is intended for anyone interested in psychodynamic psychotherapy or in psychiatric research. … It uses multiple research methodologies, large amounts of data, and clearly defined outcome measures to support the efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy.” (Brett C. Plyler, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2012)
