Description

The groundbreaking text The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies, addressing a treatment modality in increasing demand, has now been released in a new edition, thoroughly updated, revised, and expanded to include rich material for learning and teaching the "how to" of brief psychotherapy. This new edition is grounded in research and meticulously referenced; at the same time, its style is hands-on and its focus utterly pragmatic.  This is the only book presenting expert video demonstrations of the major brief psychotherapy models. The DVD depictions vividly illustrate characteristics that distinguish the various forms, so that viewers can see how the different therapies look and sound in practice -- a terrific teaching and learning tool. The DVD presents master clinicians' insights and experience for five brief therapies -- cognitive (Judith Beck, Ph.D.), behavioral (Edna Foa, Ph.D.), solution-focused (Brett Steenbarger, Ph.D.), interpersonal (Scott Stuart, M.D.), and dynamic (Hanna Levenson, Ph.D.) -- illustrating the essential techniques of these modalities in a concrete, compelling way. Because the contributors were selected for their extensive experience in teaching and training in brief therapy, they are uniquely qualified to provide highly practical and effective information about their chosen approaches. The case vignettes and clinical strategies are plentiful. A chapter on motivational interviewing, a technique used to heighten patient engagement in the brief psychotherapeutic process, has been added. The new opening chapter presents a concise review of factors common to all successful psychotherapies. The book addresses the six most common forms of brief psychotherapy in depth, examines combined therapy, cross-cultural issues, and evaluation of trainee competence, and ends with a chapter in which the editors provide a highly readable, astute overview and synthesis of this complex material. Teachers who strive to provide their students and trainees with a working sense of brief therapy beyond theory, and students who long for that down-to-earth knowledge, will be grateful for The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies.show more

Flap copy

The first book designed to teach the developing practitioner the core concepts and skills of short-term work, The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies has been revised and significantly enhanced in this second edition by the addition of an introductory section that addresses the most critical issues common to all models of psychotherapy, as well as a detailed review of motivational interviewing, a technique that focuses on increasing patient motivation and openness to change while decreasing ambivalence. Also new to this edition is a companion DVD, which provides master clinicians' insights and experience for five brief therapies -- cognitive, behavioral, solution-focused, interpersonal, and dynamic -- illustrating the essential techniques of these modalities in a concrete, compelling way. The editors selected contributors with extensive experience in teaching brief therapy and challenged them to provide practical guidance enriched with numerous case vignettes and video examples of their work. The result is a work of unparalleled insight and utility. The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies offers clinicians the hands-on information and instruction necessary to learn and then integrate this increasingly important form of therapy into their practice.show more
