Review quote

This is a lucid and clinically relevant guide to psychodynamic psychotherapy. With abundant clinical vignettes, the authors address a broad range of topics. This book will likely become the most widely used handbook for supervision of basic psychodynamic psychotherapy. -- Eric K. Milliner, M.D. What a find! This is an excellent book for both beginning and experienced clinicians and a clear, concise, well-organized textbook for teaching purposes. I highly recommend it. -- Renee L. Gelman, M. D. An impressively presented compendium of concise, practical, step-by-step introductions to the basic principles of applied psychotherapy. Especially recommended reading for novice psychotherapists and students of psychotherapy wanting to learn more about dynamic psychotherapy, the emphasis is on the application of psychotherapy rather than psychotherapy's theoretical or conceptual framework. Individual chapters range from the 'what, when, and why' of psychotherapy to the termination of psychotherapy. Enhanced with a Reference section, as well as a name and a subject index, Dynamic Psychotherapy is a work of impressive scholarship made thoroughly accessible to specialist and non-specialist readers alike. Midwest Book Review Hollender and Ford have produced the classic text for the beginning therapist. Richly illustrated with clinical material, the book clearly provides guidelines for the development of sound therapeutic techniques. This book should be required reading. -- Daniel K. Winstead, M.D.show more
