The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies: An Illustrated Guide (Core Competencies in Psychotherapy)

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.

    This review is from: The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies: An Illustrated Guide (Core Competencies in Psychotherapy) (Paperback)

    Given the current mental health care emphasis on providing clients with brief evidence-based interventions this edited book is an excellent resource for clinicians and those providing clinical training. Most other books that attempt to describe and illustrate brief treatments focus solely on cognitive-behavioral therapies. Although this book does include chapters on cognitive therapy & behavior therapy, this book also includes chapters on motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, time-limited dynamic psychotherapy, brief couples therapy, the role of common factors in therapy, pharmacotherapy, and practice from a multicultural perspective. Thus, this book makes an excellent text for systems of psychotherapy, clinical skills, and practicum/internship courses. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field and includes a video of that expert demonstrating the approach. It is an excellent read that clearly demonstrates each approach!
