Core Competencies in Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy by This book addresses the essential clinical competencies required to conduct brief dynamic therapy. Authors Jeffrey L. Binder and Ephi J. Betan discuss the conceptual foundation of their treatment model, and the application of this framework in forming and maintaining a therapeutic alliance, assessment, case formulation, implementing a treatment plan, termination, and treatment evaluation. All topics include a multicultural perspective and sensitivity to ethical issues. Binder and Betan attempt to bridge practice and research by consistently incorporating relevant research findings. Graduate students in the mental health fields and beginning therapists will find in this text the basic concepts and principles of brief dynamic psychotherapy presented in a clear and straightforward style, with many clinical examples drawn from detailed patient and therapist interchanges. Seasoned psychotherapists will find in Binder and Betan¿s discussions of case formulation and therapeutic discourse a fresh treatment of classic ideas about the therapeutic value of constructing personal narratives. At all times, the authors explicitly tie the components of their approach to the competencies required of the brief dynamic therapist. In the current environment of accountability for results, attention is given to the ongoing assessment of therapeutic progress and ultimate outcomes. This text is a scholarly yet practical guide to the evidence-based practice of brief dynamic psychotherapy.

Brief Dynamic Therapy by Brief dynamic therapy is a time-efficient treatment in which the therapist maintains a focus on specific client issues and goals, all within a basic psychodynamic framework. Common characteristics of these approaches include time management, defined focus, circumscribed goals, active therapist participation, rapid assessment, prompt intervention, an awareness of unconscious processes, and techniques that quickly foster a strong alliance with the client. This concise volume focuses largely on one popular model in particular: time-limited dynamic psychotherapy (TLDP). TLDP is an integrative approach that uses techniques from attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, affective-experiential learning, and systems orientations to help clients with long-standing, dysfunctional ways of relating to others. The author explores this integrative, culturally-sensitive approach, its theory, history, the therapy process, primary change mechanisms, empirical basis, and future developments.This revised edition includes updated case examples, as well as a wealth of new research findings -- including process-outcome studies -- that affirm treatment effectiveness, explain how alliance ruptures are repaired, and new research on the ""reconsolidation process"" that demonstrates how sudden, dramatic change happens in brief dynamic therapy.

The author integrates the psychotherapy and cognitive science literatures to provide a unique understanding of therapist expertise. Featuring many illustrative examples, the book offers fresh insights into how learning and interpersonal skills can be enhanced for both therapist and client.

Manual of Panic Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy - Xtended Range by This manual presents a carefully researched, detailed psychodynamic treatment program for the alleviation of a transdiagnostic range of primary Axis I anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and related psychological problems. First exploring the principles of psychodynamic theory and formulation, the authors then present a three-phased process of Panic Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy-Extended Range (PFPP-XR): initial evaluation, interpretation of central conflicts and defense mechanisms, and termination. Each phase is discussed in depth and relies on central case illustrations to demonstrate techniques and results. A subsequent chapter explores how to address complex issues that may arise during the course of treatment. Altogether, this manual not only provides a demonstrated, adaptable approach for anxiety disorders, but also clearly embodies a spirit of research and empiricism heretofore rare in psychodynamic psychotherapies, with an eye toward future development.

The presenting past : the core of psychodynamic counselling and therapy (Print copy) by "This text is characterised by the insight and authority of practice based evidence rather than being primarily theory applied to practice ... It is also written accessibly, with sometimes difficult psychodynamic concepts rendered into plain but elegant prose ... Convincing case studies are used throughout and summaries helpfully link practice issues with theory." Therapy Today, May 2013 "This new edition of The Presenting Past is a wonderfully readable overview of the developmental principles underlying psychodynamic counselling. Theories of Freud, Klein, Bowlby, Winnicott, Kohut and others are organized into three broad developmental themes: trust and attachment; authority and autonomy; and cooperation and competition. It is illuminated with rich clinical examples which bring alive how theory is helpful to understanding clients. Jacobs'' lucid, lively style makes the connection between theory and practice clear and accessible. This outstanding book will appeal to established clinicians as well as students training in counselling and psychotherapy." Jan Grant, Associate Professor, Counselling Psychology, Curtin University, Western Australia "Michael Jacobs is a free spirit who roams purposefully in the often contentious world of the rival psychoanalytic traditions." Professor Brian Thorne, Centre for Counselling Studies, University of East Anglia, UK "An original and reliable approach to the development of personality that every therapist and student therapist should possess. Jacobs, one of the founders of psychodynamic therapy and counselling, avoids the twin perils of unimaginative, meaningless causality on the one hand and indifferent, irresponsible reference to fate on the other." Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex, UK "In this fourth edition of what is a seminal text on psychodynamic ways of working, Michael Jacobs has managed to take the reader through the complex and intricate ways of thinking about what it is to be human from a psychodynamic view of the world. This text has been recommended reading for undergraduates that I teach who are studying the world of counselling and helping and it continues to be a text that they draw on when faced with a difficulty in understanding the ideas and concepts of the psychodynamic approach. Michael Jacobs has that rare ability to make complicated ideas and concepts seem understandable and yet leave the reader in no doubt that they are complicated. The use of case material brings the theory to live and mirrors Michael''s commitment to practice that is informed by theory. This is a vade mecum and Michael has ''done the job''." Sue Sully, Senior Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy, University of Brighton, UK A person''s past is ever present, from infancy to old age, and it affects the dynamics of therapy and the therapist-patient relationship. Written by a key founding figure of psychodynamic counselling and one of most-cited counselling authors in Europe, the bestselling The Presenting Past gives practicing therapists and students keen insight into the subject. The theories of Freud, Winnicott, Klein and attachment theorists are organized into three main categories: trust and attachment; authority and autonomy; and cooperation and competitiveness. In this new edition, Michael Jacobs gives psychodynamic counselling and therapy a truly human face. He brings practice to the forefront in a new three-part structure. This is realized through the swift introduction of the themes in the therapeutic relationship throughout the book, making integration of theory and practice clearer than ever. Looking at what the client presents as troubling them, what the therapist experiences about the client and their relationship in therapy and exploring theories to throw light on these themes now lies firmly at the core of the book. Fully updated with new references, The Presenting Past stays wonderfully readable. The book shows Jacobs at his best and is a testimony to his lifetime of experience.

Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy by 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.

Time-Limited Psychotherapy by Waiting lists in psychiatric clinics and increasing numbers of patients in long-term psychotherapy have highlighted the need for shorter methods of treatment. Existing forms of short-term psychotherapy tend to be vague and uncertain, lacking as they do a clearly formulated rationale and methodology. The bold and challenging technique for brief psychotherapy designed around the factor of time itself, which James Mann introduces here, is a method he hopes will revolutionize current practice. The significance of time in human life is examined in terms of the development of time sense as well as its unconscious meaning and the ways these are experienced in both the categorical and existential senses. The author shows how the interplay between the regressive pressures of the child's sense of infinite time and the adult reality of categorical time determine the patient's unconscious expectations of psychotherapy.

A Casebook in Time-Limited Psychotherapy by This work argues that the selection of 12 sessions on a once weekly basis mobilises hope and optimism in psychotherapy patients. It also necessitates dealing with the conscious and unconscious conflicts and meanings surrounding time, termination and separation-individuation. The patient knows precisely when the beginning stages of therapy are over, and where the middle and end are. No other short-term therapy deals specifically with these issues. Much of the theorising on time by Dr Mann is relevant to the termination issues in open-ended long-term psychotherapy and psychoanalysis proper. Margaret Mahler's writings are also utilised.

Developing Psychodynamic Counselling by `This book deals with many aspects of psychodynamic counselling from the minutiae of the extrinsic context, such as decor, through the "therapeutic stance of attentive reserve" on to an elaboration of the elements of a therapeutic relationship... the book is liberally garnished with case studies... informative and thought-provoking... a useful resource to those teaching psychodynamic principles... If you are new to psychodynamic work, this book could be a safe and helpful guide... The ideas and techniques offered by the author may also prove intriguing and even inspiring to those (like me) from a different therapeutic orientation′ - The International Journal of Social Psychiatry Psychodynamic counselling has developed from the psychoanalytic tradition inaugurated by Freud. At its core is a belief in the role of the unconscious in the development of conflict and disturbance, which may be resolved through the careful unfolding of the therapeutic relationship via the transference/counter-transference dynamic and within a defined setting. Integrating theory and context, this book explores the opportunities for counsellors to develop their own practice of psychodynamic counselling. The author encourages readers to look carefully at the way they work and to think about strategies to improve their skills in a specialized form of relating. He examines areas crucial to the psychodynamic approach, including internal and external settings, working with issues around boundaries, and transference and counter-transference.

Psychoanalytic Counseling by Explores psychoanalytic counseling from both a theoretical and clinical perspective. Introductory in nature, it illustrates how the counselor, acting as a scientist/practitioner may use psychoanalytic theory as a template for understanding client interview behavior, for intervening in the flow of that behavior, and as a means of assessing the efficacy of those interventions. The focus is on the importance of the counselor acting as scientist/practitioner in helping the client. Coverage encompasses history and analysis of psychoanalytic ideas and their development, the authors' interpretations of Freud's classic theory, Kohut's theory of the self and their own ideas about the interview process.

Psycho-Analytic Insight and Relationships by Melanie Klein has been one of the most important contributors to our thinking about human development and human personality. In this classic text, Isca Salzberger-Wittenberg demonstates through theoretical exposition and the use of case material the ways in which Melanie Klein's main concepts and theories illuminate the practice of social casework. These theories are often complex and controversial, but this concise and lucid account continues to enable social workers and others in helping professions to judge the relevance of the Kleinian approach for themselves.

Inside Lives by Inside Lives belongs to the heart of the thinking and working of the Tavistock Clinic. Its aim is to bring psychoanalytic theory to life, to make it accessible to a much wider range of readers, both lay and professional, than would normally be familiar with this kind of approach. In the simplest of terms it tells the most complex of stories: the story of the internal development of a person from infancy to old age. In so doing, it reflects and encompasses the generational structure of the clinic as a whole, tracing the interacting influences - between infant, child, adolescent and adult - on the nature and quality of emotional growth and development.This book provides a perspective on the relationship between psychoanalytic theory and the nature of human development, which is not currently available in written form. Following the major developmental phases from infancy to old age, the author lucidly explores those vital aspects of experience, which promote mental and emotional growth and those which impede it.
