Firmly grounded in contemporary clinical practice and research, this pragmatic guide for professionals and students is now in a revised and expanded second edition. The book explains the theory underlying psychodynamic approaches and lays out a model for understanding psychopathology. Vivid case examples demonstrate how to tailor psychodynamic therapy effectively for individual patients. The authors provide a framework for diagnosing the patient’s core psychodynamic problem and engaging the most useful mechanisms of change, using an integrative approach. Special topics include remote and hybrid treatment, combining therapy with psychopharmacology, and working with couples and families.
