Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

‘This book provides a well-developed model of short-term psychodynamic therapy, which is both evidence based and sensitive to interpersonal and relational processes. It is particularly strong in aiding therapists to sense, refine, and then work on a therapeutic focus with their clients. This is one of the foremost skills necessary for effective therapy. Each phase of the therapy is explained in detail with rich case examples. The book is unique in attending to the need for evidence-based psychodynamically informed therapies. It provides a solid basis for teaching the STDIP model and then for determining and rating the therapist’s adherence to the model. In doing so, it provides both deep clinical insights and opportunities for future research. It is an important and wise contribution to our field.’

‘A truly innovative work. An approach to short-term psychodynamic therapy that incorporates developmental and trauma theory, affect theory, memory and linguistics theory and evolving brain dynamics. It is integrated, structured, time limited, dynamic and interpersonal. Incorporating underlying theory, techniques, and process along with illustrative case examples, and concluding with specific situations such as adolescence and parent–child therapy, it leaves nothing out. Written in an accessible style, and illustrated throughout with detailed case studies, if you are a professional working in this area, then this is the book for you. It’s a welcome addition to the library of anyone practising dynamic psychotherapy.’
- Janine Stevenson, clinical associate professor, Sydney University, and consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist
