This volume is a concise, convenient, and clearly written book for those who wish to study, master, and teach the core competencies of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Relevant for novice therapists as well as experienced clinicians and supervisors, this text also goes eoebetween the linese of evidence-based practices to highlight those methods which maximize the motivational and inspirational power of this therapy. Dr. Newman focuses on ways in which therapists can make treatment memorable for clients, thus enhancing maintenance and self-efficacy. He also highlights the value system that is inherent in best practices of cognitive-behavioral therapies, such as clinicianse(tm) commitment to earn the trust and collaboration of clients, to be humble students of the field for their entire careers, and to seek to combine the best of empirical thinking with warmth and creativity. Notably, this handbook also emphasizes the importance of therapists applying cognitive-behavioral principles to themselves in the form of self-reflective skills, good problem-solving, being role models of self-care, and being able to use techniques thoughtfully in the service of repairing strains in the therapeutic relationship. Newmane(tm)s book provides many enlightening clinical examples, including those practices that otherwise eager therapists should not do (such as eoemicro-managinge the cliente(tm)s thoughts), as well as a plethora of transcript material that describes best supervisory practices. It does all this with a tone that is engaging, respectful of the reader, caring towards the clients, and optimistic about the positive impact cognitive-behavioral therapiese"when learned and used welle"can have on the lives of so many, clients and clinicians alike.

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.
