Dynamic Therapies for Psychiatric Disorders: Axis I


The editors of this volume asked experts in the psychodynamically oriented treatment of various disorders (including depression, panic, generalized anxiety, drug or alcohol abuse, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress, schizophrenia, dissociative states, grief reactions, and HIV-related issues) to write in detail about the techniques they use. While the range of dynamic approaches offered here varies from interpersonal to object relations to self psychology, the contributors all present their techniques in a uniform way that makes it easy for practitioners to put them to immediate use. Each chapter presents the history and development of the method; the selection criteria used for treatment; specific dynamic issues; treatment goals; theory of change; techniques; vivid case examples; training issues; and empirical evidence for the approach. All the techniques have been used extensively in clinical settings. Several have also been rigorously tested in research comparing different forms of treatment for specific disorders. With its detailed techniques, its theoretical sophistication, and its impressive array of contributors, this book will go far in advancing the science and art of psychotherapy.
