Book Description :

In this unique book, Dr. Richard Chessick asks questions about psychotherapy and answers them. Engaging readers in a dialogue between a senior psychodynamic clinician and novice mental health professionals, one with a particularly medical-biological approach to psychological problems, Dr. Chessick demonstrates how dynamic therapy works and explains the current controversies in the field. Specifically, the discussion—modeled on Galileo's "Dialogues Concerning the Two Chief World Systems"—considers the significance of memories and early experiences, the therapist's input, curative factors, differentiating psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, interpretation, treatment impasse and failure, idealization and transference, borderline states, object relations theories, and the future of the field. Alternative points of view and unresolved issues are highlighted, along with many useful tips for successful clinical practice and case vignettes. This book brings readers to the cutting edge of current thinking in the theory and practice of intensive psychodynamic psychotherapy and highlights the kinds of concerns and problems that are faced by beginning and advanced students as well as seasoned clinicians.

Book Description :

Dr Alistair Ross is a University of Oxford academic whose previous work has been described by Ruby Wax as ‘very, very smart’. This new introductory book strikes an easy balance between theory and practice. It takes the reader from the field’s Freudian roots to its contemporary applications, skills and insights. Over the last 30 years, important new theoretical ideas, skills and clinical practices have emerged in counselling and psychotherapy. While key Freudian concepts like transference, counter-transference and the influence of the past on the present remain vital to psychodynamic work, research drawn from infant development, neuroscience, the role of the sacred, and intersubjective approaches to relationships has changed the way therapists understand and work with clients. Either in its own right or as part of an integrative approach, psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy have an important role to play in developments to come. The book’s features include: • A re-discovery of the importance and relevance of Freud for present-day therapeutic relationships. • An encounter with the breadth and depth of our understanding about, and experience of, the unconscious. • An introduction to research that has evolved after Freud, revealing new ways of applying his ideas. • A contemporary perspective on traditional counselling and psychotherapy skills, illustrated by vignettes and personal insights from Alistair Ross’s professional practice. • An encouragement to develop new skills for relating at depth with our clients’ past, present and future, motivated by revealing how life-changing therapy can be. This book is a must-read for trainee and practising (psychodynamic or integrative) therapists who want an overview of new thinking and practice or might benefit from greater insight into psychodynamic practice, applying Freud’s theoretical world to improving the lives of real people today. ‘It is good to see Alistair, a valued student of mine and now an equally valued colleague, taking up the torch for psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy for a new generation. He has written a book that collates much of the valuable writing to date and at the same time adds new dimensions that should not be overlooked.’ Michael Jacobs, Visiting Professor, University of Leeds and Bournemouth University, UK

Book Description :

This intriguing volume presents the most contemporary views on the conceptualization and treatment of somatoform disorders and related conditions from experts in psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approaches. It does so with respect to both perspectives, without advocating for either approach. By presenting expert views from diverse perspectives, the book raises, what is a central point in most of the chapters, that emotion, its processing and regulation, is a cornerstone of these disorders. The volume also highlights the role of pathogenic coping or defense mechanisms like dysfunctional avoidance (from a CBT perspective) and conversion (from the psychodynamic perspective) in the maintenance of psychosomatic symptoms. The volume’s contents include detailed literature reviews on the most common—and most treatment-resistant—mind/body conditions, including chronic pain, responses to trauma, alexithymia, and the spectrum of health anxiety disorders. Noted experts distinguish between types of medically unexplained symptoms, discuss their complex processes, and provide models for intervention where cognitive-behavioral or psychodynamic approaches may be appropriate or effective. And a fascinating case study of a patient presenting multiple trauma-related disorders explores therapist resourcefulness over a course of shifting symptoms and frustrating setbacks. Among the topics covered: Maintaining mechanisms of health anxiety: current state of knowledge. Negative affect and medically unexplained symptoms. Alexithymia as a core trait in psychosomatic and other psychological disorders. Trauma and its consequences for body and mind. Embodied memories, a new pathway to the unconcious. Psychotherapy among HIV patients: a look at a psychoimmunological research study after 20 years. Health anxiety: a cognitive-behavioral framework. The wealth of options discussed in Somatoform and Psychosomatic Disorders offers health psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counselors, and psychoanalysts bold new ideas for case formulation, treatment planning, and intervention with some of their most intractable cases.

Book Description :

A provocative look at America on the couch.In Psychotherapy as Religion, William Epstein sets out to debunk claims that psychotherapy provides successful clinical treatment for a wide range of personal and social problems. He argues that the practice is not a science at all but rather the civil religion of America, reflecting the principles of radical self-invention and self-reliance deeply embedded in the psyche of the nation. Epstein begins by analyzing a number of clinical studies conducted over the past two decades that purport to establish the effectiveness of psychotherapeutic treatments. He finds that each study violates in some way the standard criteria of scientific credibility and that the field has completely failed to establish objective procedures and measurements to assess clinical outcomes. Epstein exposes psychotherapy’s deep roots in the religious and intellectual movements of the early nineteenth century by demonstrating striking parallels between various types of therapy and such popular practices as Christian Science and spiritualism. Psychotherapy has taken root in our culture because it so effectively reflects our national faith in individual responsibility for social and personal problems. It thrives as the foundation of American social welfare policy, blaming deviance and misery on deficiencies of character rather than on the imperfections of society and ignoring the influence of unequal and deficient social conditions while requiring miscreants to undergo the moral reeducation that psychotherapy represents. This is a provocative, brilliantly argued look at America on the couch. Psychotherapy as Religion is essential reading for anyone interested in the history and current state of mental health.

Book Description :

Depression, a highly common clinical disorder, is an important and clinically relevant topic for both clinical researchers and practitioners to address, because of its prevalence, impact on the individual and society, association with other mental and physical health problems and the social contexts in which it develops. Depression ranks in Germany and central Europe as the third among the leading mental disorders and world-wide is a leading cause of disability. It is estimated that 8.3 % of the German population is depressed within a year (11.2 % women, 5.5 % men). These statistics mean that 4 million people per year are depressed in Germany alone (one year prevalence). According to the WHO, over 300 million people world-wide experience depression and in the USA the financial burden of this disorder, due to disability and work absenteeism, reaches Depression is also becoming more frequent over time and has a high risk of recidivism –particularly since its most common form, Major Depressive Disorder (DSM-5; ICD10) tends to occur in episodes. For example, 20% to 40% of people become depressed again within two years after their first depressive episode, meaning that a major aim of any therapeutic intervention should be to prevent future relapses. Depression also shows very high comorbidities with other mental and physical health conditions. Its overlap with anxiety pathology is so high that clinicians are concerned with whether the two disorder categories are indeed distinct or if they show substantial etiological overlap. Depression is also associated with heart disease and even cancer, making it a risk factor for mortality and morbidity that needs to be identified early and addressed effectively. In addition to Major Depressive Disorder, the often severe Bipolar Disorder, and the chronic form of Depression referred to as dysthymia are additional mood disorders that among them require careful differential diagnosis. They also lead to questions regarding their common or distinct etiological mechanisms. In order to gain a better understanding of Depression as a clinical disorder, one needs to look at it as a multifaceted phenomenon. Depression is a neurobehavioral condition, and one has to be up to date and have solid understanding of its biological substrate, at a genetic, neuronal, hormonal and pharmacological level. Depression is also a socio-demographic phenomenon, and one needs to examine its epidemiology, that might contain significant cues towards its clearer understanding. It is more prevalent, for example, in certain regions, climates, age groups and genders (much more prevalent in women, with age of appearance in young adulthood but also presents as a significant problem for youth and the elderly), is associated with stereotypes and stigma and can be the aftermath of crises, trauma and loss. The etiology of Depression remains under scrutiny, though recently much more knowledge is emerging from contemporary neuroimaging, genotyping and data science methods. Different neural and behavioral systems may be involved contributing to the significant heterogeneity within the disorder. Social roles, stressors, attachment patterns, family support and social networks, and individual (e.g. gender linked) vulnerabilities may contribute significantly towards increasing risk for developing depression. Different therapeutic approaches, like those stemming from the psychoanalytic/psychodynamic perspectives and those stemming from the cognitive/behavioral (2nd and 3rd wave) tradition focus on the components of etiology considered most dominant. As science progresses with clearer evidence regarding the important etiological factors and their interactions, these different perspectives, each with its own contribution, may need to take new developments into consideration, adapt and even begin to converge. These different aspects of the topic of Depression, which are central to the scientific aims of clinical scientists, but also permeate the way clinicians approach assessment, diagnosis, case formulation and treatment, become the focus of the present volume. Following a conference held at the University of Cyprus, in Nicosia, Cyprus in October 2019, which included presentations by internationally renowned experts in the field on these various aspects of Depression, the idea of extending the topics presented and discussed at the meeting into more elaborated and substantive chapters and synthesizing them into an edited volume was generated. The aim was to fill a substantive gap, with a volume that would be beneficial to a wider, interdisciplinary audience of clinicians, trainees and researchers with examine the different aspects of Depression. In this Edited volume, with contributions from prominent experts in the field, we propose to discuss the subject of conceptualizing and treating Depression and related conditions (e.g. Suicide, Bipolar Disorder) from different theoretical perspectives and after taking into consideration current research into the etiology and maintenance of this condition. Chapters on theoretical perspectives of treatment cover a wide range of approaches, that could be broadly clustered under behavioural and psychodynamic points of view. Perspectives discussed in this volume are psychodynamic therapy, 2nd waver CBT, acceptance and commitment therapy and mentalization therapy. Special topics with great relevance to treatment, include treatment in different levels of care (e.g. partial hospital setting; prevention of suicide; working with cancer patients). The book provides a unique combination of current empirical findings on etiology of depression and suicide, treatment considerations and practical recommendations, treatment in different settings and combination of different theoretical perspectives that can enrich a therapists’ repertoire of tools for understanding and approaching depression. The book describes various theoretical approaches without adhering to anyone but with an effort to highlight common underlying themes like issues of loss, self-esteem, guilt, grief and emotion regulation as these permeate the various perspectives. In this way the book presents a combination of science and practice and of various views that constitute an excellent resource of researchers, clinicians and students of mental health professions. In a final chapter the two editors, Drs. Christos Charis and Georgia Panayiotou, make an effort to impartially integrate information from the various perspectives, highlighting the utility of each approach to address specific vulnerability and etiological factors discussed in the book. In this regard, the volume stresses the idea of the need for continuous and open dialogue between perspectives, theories, levels of investigation, research areas, practitioner needs and scientific views to help make progress in treatment and address this complex and multi-faceted phenomenon

Book Description :

Quality of life is an important outcome when treating a cancer patient. Research is vast on the role of quality of life on patients' general wellbeing, responsiveness to treatment, and even mortality. On the other hand, there are several methodological considerations when planning to measure and assess quality of life in cancer patients. This handbook – with authorship that is diverse in terms of perspectives, countries, and fields – aims to fill a gap in the available literature and responds to a number of questions in its 26 chapters: What is quality of life and health-related quality of life and why are they important? How is quality of life assessed? What are the theoretical and methodological considerations when using quality of life outcomes in cancer research? How is quality of life useful in routine clinical care? How is quality of life impacting different cancer populations in terms of site of the cancer, age, gender, and context? Handbook of Quality of Life in Cancer is a learning and consulting tool that can be used by a diverse audience. It is an essential resource for researchers who wish to use quality of life assessment tools in clinical trials or other types of studies; clinicians who want to develop their understanding of how they can utilize quality of life and how it is important for the patients they care for; and commissioners who wish to see why quality of life may impact population health and health system costs. Students in diverse fields of study (medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, medical sociology, population health, epidemiology, and medical statistics, among others) also would benefit from using the handbook for their studies and for their continuing professional development.

Book Description :

Mick Cooper and John McLeod pioneer a major new framework for counselling theory, practice and research - the 'pluralistic' approach. This model breaks away from the orientation-specific way in which counselling has traditionally been taught, reflecting and responding to shifts in counselling and psychotherapy training. As accessible and engaging as ever, Cooper and McLeod argue that there is no one right way of doing therapy and that different clients need different things at different times. By identifying and demonstrating the application of a range of therapeutic methods, the book outlines a flexible framework for practice within which appropriate methods can be selected depending on the client's individual needs and the therapist's knowledge and experience. This is a must-read for anybody training or practising in the counselling or helping professions - it should not be missed!

Book Description :

This completely updated second edition of Comprehensive Textbook of Psychotherapy discusses the contemporary landscape of psychotherapy, honors its complexities, and focuses on history, theory, science, practice, and diversity. The book is divided into three parts: (1) Models of Psychotherapy; (2) Psychotherapy by Modalities and Populations, and (3) Research Methods and Randomized Clinical Trials, Professional Issues, and New Directions in Psychotherapy. Part 1 has been expanded to include two chapters on Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). This section now details the similarities and differences that exist across models, in an effort to articulate overarching principles of human change and stability processes that are advanced through professional practice. Chapters in Part 1 are organized into sets of two; each set has a theory chapter covering one of the six psychotherapy models discussed, followed by a practice chapter that conveys and illustrates the use of the model in a specific application, including a detailed case example. Part 2 addresses modalities of psychotherapy such as group, family, and electronic-based approaches, as well as psychotherapy with specific populations such as children and adolescents, older adults, and women. This section, too, has been expanded to include treatment of people in the schizophrenia spectrum, a chapter on treatment of immigrants and refugees, and another on working with men. There are also new chapters on working with military personnel and veterans, and a chapter on treating survivors of trauma, specifically on those exposed to mass trauma. Still another new chapter is included on working with psychological emergencies. Part 3 covers research methods and randomized clinical trials, the training of psychotherapists, ethics and legal matters, and the future of psychotherapy. Research and diversity are emphasized in each chapter and throughout the book. This new edition of a classic textbook will be valuable to instructors and students, psychotherapists-in-training, practitioners, and supervisors alike.

Book Description :

In this book, the author selects and presents eighteen of his most salient clinical papers. His presentation of detailed treatment cases is useful to the therapist and reveals an original orientation based on his five channel theory of psychoanalytic listening, that involves listening and responding to the patient from different stances or frameworks. He also reviews the various factors that he feels are operative in bringing about changes in psychoanalytic treatment. Clinical material from the treatment of borderline patient, eating disorders, psychosomatic disorders, schizophrenic disorders, obessive-compulsive disorders and characterological and personality disorders is included. This study is personal and reveals much about the inner thoughts of the psychoanalyst as he struggles to deal with difficult problems, including impasses and failures in the treatment.
