This updated volume contains coverage of the major principles and important issues in psychodynamic psychotherapy, including concepts and techniques, initiation and termination of treatment, and patient evaluation and education. Four key chapters review resistance and defence, transference, countertransference, and dreams, providing information for the beginning therapist. A special chapter covers practice issues, including the office setting, suicidal and dangerous patients, and what to do when the therapist makes errors. This guide also reviews data from efficacy and cost effectiveness studies and emphasizes that psychodynamic psychotherapy remains an effective part of mental health care even in the managed world.

Review quote

"The authors are to be congratulated for explicating the basic tenants and subtleties of psychodynamic psychotherapy in this very readable and accessible second edition. Not only have they managed to convey the most salient ideas concerning the conduct of psychodynamic psychotherapy, but they have brought it into a modern framework by emphasizing the role of empirical research and adopting a problem solving, practical vision that takes into consideration the realities of present day psychiatric focused therapy, and managed care. This is an outstanding contribution and should become a mainstay for those learning psychodynamic psychotherapy for the first time as well as a refresher for those more experienced."- "William H Sledge, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut"
