Presenting a pragmatic, evidence-based approach to conducting psychodynamic therapy, this engaging and instructive guide is firmly grounded in contemporary clinical practice and research. The book reflects an openness to new influences on dynamic technique, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and positive psychology. It offers a fresh understanding of the most common problems for which patients seek help -depression, obsessionality, low self-esteem, fear of abandonment, panic, and trauma -and shows how to organize and deliver effective psychodynamic interventions. Extensive case material illustrates each stage of therapy, from engagement to termination. Special topics include ways to integrate individual treatment with psychopharmacology and with couple or family work.
