Time-limited Dynamic Psychotherapy: A Guide To Clinical Practice

Ten years ago, Hans Strupp and Jeffrey Binder’s Psychotherapy in a New Key introduced a powerful, empirically tested model of brief psychotherapy that has proven highly successful and changed the practice of psychotherapy forever. But until now, there has been no follow-up publication to make the model come alive. With this book, Hanna Levenson draws on her extensive experience with time-limited dynamic psychotherapy to let readers see the therapy in action.In this era of managed care and limited insurance reimbursement for therapy, many clients are receiving brief therapy treatment. can therapists adjust to these new pressures for efficiency without feeling as if they have to choose between good therapy and brief therapy? Time-limited dynamic psychotherapy provides a state-of-the-art model of treatment that incorporates current developments in psychoanalytic, interpersonal, object-relations, and self psychology theories, as well as cognitive-behavioral and systems approaches. This flexible approach to brief therapy is designed to treat people with long-standing dysfunctional relationships. This book emphasizes identification of interpersonal difficulties and teaches a method of focusing therapy that is behaviorally based and explicit.In a highly original approach, Levenson presents detailed transcripts not only of model cases but also for students discussing those cases with her, taken from a videotape of her class. A spirited forum on the techniques and aims of time-limited dynamic psychotherapy emerges, adding a depth and richness not usually found in casebooks. This thoughtful, important companion volume to Strupp and Binder’s book will gain a broad following as therapists seek to practice therapy that is effective, efficient, and empirically based.

    Dr. Levenson’s masterful didactic style reveals the elegance and simplicity of the time-limited dynamic model. The book provides moment-to-moment details of patient-therapist interactions and gives the reader a learning experience of remarkable immediacy. Dr. Levenson’s clinical savvy and sophistication are evident on every page. Highly recommended for any clinician, regardless of orientation; you will find this highly readable, jargon-free presentation of time-limited dynamic psychotherapy an invaluable resource. A “must read” for clinicians who want to make every session count without sacrificing depth

    A refreshing perspective on the psychotherapy process., January 18, 2004

    Dr. Levenson has managed to write an informative, helpful and entertaining book on psychotherapy. She has taken a bit of a literary risk by structuring the book around the dialogs of a student supervision group as they struggle to make sense of videotaped psychotherapy sessions, but Dr. Levenson manages to pull this off. In fact, this literary device gives the book a liveliness and freshness rarely found in clinical writings. As a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor myself, I have found her concepts of immediate use in my daily work. Anyone who has worked in the field should particularly enjoy Dr. Levenson’s liberating view of counter-transference as an inevitable reaction to a client’s maladaptive interpersonal style – and not necessarily a signal for the therapist to run back for another decade of personal analysis.
