Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy : Theory and Technique, Paperback

Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy : Theory and Technique Paperback


Traditionally, psychoanalytic treatment has been a lengthy endeavour, requiring a long-term commitment from patient and analyst, as well as vast financial resources.

More recently, short-term approaches to psychoanalytic treatment have proliferated.

One of the most well-known and thoroughly studied is the groundbreaking method of Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy, developed by Dr. Habib Davanloo. Having trained directly with Dr. Davenloo, the author has written a clear, concise outline of the method that has come to be regarded as a classic in the field.

The book is organised in a systematic fashion, analogous to the process of therapy itself, from initial contact through to termination and follow-up.

Detailed clinical examples are presented throughout the text to illustrate how theory is translated into techniques of unparalleled power and effectiveness.
