Mastering the art of supportive psychotherapy demands years of training and experience -- and Learning Supportive Psychotherapy: An Illustrated Guide paves the way. This book, along with the accompanying DVD, serves as a trustworthy guide to mastering the rudiments of supportive psychotherapy from the initial interview through the therapeutic progression to the very last session. The authors, preeminent figures in psychiatry, describe the basic principles and objectives of supportive psychotherapy, with emphasis on the critical importance of the therapeutic relationship and how to develop a positive therapeutic alliance. They have written an extremely accessible text that provides practical hands-on instruction to beginning psychotherapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and others who require the fundamentals of psychotherapeutic patient care. Supportive psychotherapy has been recognized as a core competency, and readers seeking the requisite skills will find an advantage in this volume's beneficial features: Insightful perspective on the origins and development of supportive psychotherapy, locating it on the psychodynamic therapy spectrum, and distinguishing it from the expressive psychotherapies in terms of objectives, process, and outcomes Expert instruction on conducting a thorough assessment and evaluation of a patient, with emphasis on techniques for conducting a comprehensive initial interview, exploring the patient's manifesting problems, taking an accurate patient history, eliciting useful information, and identifying supportive measures -- all of which are crucial to establishing a therapeutic relationship Specialized focus on useful techniques, including alliance building, esteem building, encouragement, promoting adaptive behaviors, anticipatory guidance, reducing and preventing anxiety, naming the problem, rationalizing and reframing, expanding awareness, clarification, interpretation, and much more Critical information on how to intervene in a crisis to facilitate the patient's personal growth rather than physical and psychological deterioration Significant clinical illustrations, vignettes, and case studies to help the reader make connections between theoretical concepts and real-world applications. This text follows one of the three formats now required for psychiatry residency training by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and provides newly credentialed psychiatrists with the basic tools needed to treat the broad range of patients they encounter. Like the other books in the Core Competencies series, it is a valuable adjunct to the traditional methods of psychotherapy education and an indispensable resource for the profession.

This is the type of book instructors, trainees, and clinicians need—a short text that demystifies the case conceptualization process and provides a streamlined method for learning and mastering this competency. It presents an integrative model for conceptualizing cases, dispels common myths about case conceptualization, and provides straightforward guidelines and strategies for mastering this essential competency. Writing clinically useful case conceptualizations is no longer optional today, and this training guide is the only resource you will need to increase your expertise and incorporate this competency in professional practice. Five detailed clinical case studies are referred to throughout the book, and exercises are presented at the end of the last five chapters to help readers in deriving Cognitive-Behavioral, Dynamic, Solution-Focused, Biopsychosocial, and Adlerian case conceptualizations from an integrative assessment. Drs. Len and Jonathan Sperry also address cultural sensitivity and offer guidelines for developing cultural conceptualizations and selecting culturally-sensitive treatments. All techniques are easy to understand and use, ensuring that readers will master this competency and feel confident applying it to difficult cases.

The groundbreaking text The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies, addressing a treatment modality in increasing demand, has now been released in a new edition, thoroughly updated, revised, and expanded to include rich material for learning and teaching the "how to" of brief psychotherapy. This new edition is grounded in research and meticulously referenced; at the same time, its style is hands-on and its focus utterly pragmatic. * This is the only book presenting expert video demonstrations of the major brief psychotherapy models. The DVD depictions vividly illustrate characteristics that distinguish the various forms, so that viewers can see how the different therapies look and sound in practice -- a terrific teaching and learning tool.* The DVD presents master clinicians' insights and experience for five brief therapies -- cognitive (Judith Beck, Ph.D.), behavioral (Edna Foa, Ph.D.), solution-focused (Brett Steenbarger, Ph.D.), interpersonal (Scott Stuart, M.D.), and dynamic (Hanna Levenson, Ph.D.) -- illustrating the essential techniques of these modalities in a concrete, compelling way.* Because the contributors were selected for their extensive experience in teaching and training in brief therapy, they are uniquely qualified to provide highly practical and effective information about their chosen approaches. The case vignettes and clinical strategies are plentiful.* A chapter on motivational interviewing, a technique used to heighten patient engagement in the brief psychotherapeutic process, has been added.* The new opening chapter presents a concise review of factors common to all successful psychotherapies.* The book addresses the six most common forms of brief psychotherapy in depth, examines combined therapy, cross-cultural issues, and evaluation of trainee competence, and ends with a chapter in which the editors provide a highly readable, astute overview and synthesis of this complex material. Teachers who strive to provide their students and trainees with a working sense of brief therapy beyond theory, and students who long for that down-to-earth knowledge, will be grateful for The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies.
