Praise for Personality-Guided Therapy "A comprehensive, innovative approach to the treatment of syndromal and personality disorders. This volume is a 'must read' for students as well as mental health professionals."—Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania "[Millon] masterfully integrates disparate systems of psychotherapy, as well as personality theory and clinical practice, in reminding us that psychotherapy is not, and never will be, a disembodied treatment of simple disorders, but rather textured interpersonal relationships with complex people. Brilliant in concept and amazing in scope!"—John C. Norcross, PhD, University of Scranton, President-elect, APA Division of Psychotherapy "His freshly conceived focus on tailoring treatment modalities to fit individual patient's personality pattern adds an important new dimension to the psychological intervention literature."—Irving B. Weiner, PhD, University of South Florida "[This book] provides par excellence the type of integrative thinking clinicians need, our training program should utilize, and our field is striving for."—John F. Clarkin, PhD, New York Hospital, Cornell Medical Center "Students of various disciplines, as well as seasoned mental health professionals, will undoubtedly return again and again to this volume to glean a deeper understanding of personality functioning and to develop a greater appreciation of how to approach these disorders therapeutically. This volume is sure to prove a classic in the field."—Jeffrey J. Magnavita, PhD, ABPP, Connecticut Center for Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
Finally, the companion volume that takes the best-selling DSM-IV-TR® Casebook to the next level -- Treatment Companion to the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook. One of the main purposes of psychiatric diagnosis is to guide treatment selection. Although the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook discussions often briefly mention treatment and follow-up, the focus is almost exclusively on diagnosis. This Treatment Companion takes the next step: for 34 cases (all but three from the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook), world-renowned experts discuss their approach to treatment for a case in their specialty area -- both how they would manage the specific case and the general principles of treatment for that disorder. Treatment Companion to the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook is an indispensable companion designed to help students, residents, and clinicians conceptualize how DSM-IV-TR can be used in everyday practice and will be invaluable in helping mental health professionals develop a deeper comprehension of all diagnostic categories and their treatments. Treatments include:Antabuse (disulfiram) Cholinesterase inhibitors Electroconvulsive therapy Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitorsStimulants Behavior exposure Behavior therapy Classroom behavior modification Cognitive enhancement therapy Cognitive-behavioral analysis system of psychotherapy Cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention therapy Cognitive-behavioral therapy Contingency management Couple therapy Dialectical behavior therapy Family psychoeducation Family-focused therapy Interpersonal psychotherapy Interpersonal social rhythm therapy Motivational interviewing Personal therapy Psychodynamically based partial hospitalization Relaxation exercises Self-help groups Social skills training Supportive psychotherapy Transference-focused psychotherapy

The woman seriously interested in her personal growth and self-awareness will find this volume indispensable reading! She can learn how to assume power over her relationships, mind, body, and positions in society. Leading feminist therapists provide methods that can help women make their aspirations for power a reality--in the workplace, in social situations, in intimate relationships. Topics include black women and the politics of skin color and hair agoraphobic women and behavior change, unlearning victim behavior, decision-making about contraception, single mothers by choice, female alcoholism and affiliation needs, and much more. This volume is on the cutting edge of the rapidly expanding body of literature and knowledge in women's studies, and describes new and frequently controversial ideas and programs. It deals with issues of power over the intimacies of women's bodies and psyches, as well as power in the workplace, professional societies, and the courts. In order to help the reader understand these issues more fully, this fine book also describes some of the historical and social contexts in which women have not had power or have gained power.
"As we enter a new era of scientific evaluation and acceptance of Freud's ideas, psychodynamic practitioners need to be aware of the most valid and clinically useful findings relevant to their everyday work with patients. This handbook meets that need by integrating the best contributions of the clinical psychoanalytic literature with the latest generation of clinical-quantitative research, and translating these findings into pragmatic clinical wisdom about what works and what doesn't." "In twenty-six chapters, forty-nine leading authorities and clinician-researchers discuss what is known about selecting patients, defining treatments, and measuring key processes and outcomes. The findings include which curative factors are effective; how the patient-therapist alliance can be a major predictor of treatment success; new transference, defense, insight, and internalization measures; prescriptions for improved case studies; pros and cons of the DSMs; and the role of psychotherapy manuals." "This comprehensive volume not only offers the clinician the latest in psychodynamic research and thinking but can guide those who wish to shape their clinical hypothesis into a study. By reviewing the central clinical concepts and techniques of psychodynamic psychotherapy and by providing the necessary empirical documentation to support their validity and clinical relevance, Psychodynamic Treatment Research makes an important contribution to mapping out the future of therapy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
