Reviews

The advancement of psychotherapy as a scientific discipline and clinical art requires the kinds of incisive analyses undertaken by Dr. Mardi Horowitz and his collaborators. Their work is thought-provoking and exemplifies the directions in which the field must move. -- Hans H. Strupp, Ph.D., Vanderbilt University Dr. Horowitz and his colleagues have made a significant addition to the literature on brief psychotherapy. The initial chapter reviewing historical developments is not only an excellent summary of current psychotherapeutic techniques, but it provides a fitting background to the authors' own unique concerns with tailoring brief therapy to the individual patient's personality configuration. This is a book from which all psychotherapists will profit, whether they are budding beginners or in the full flower of a successful career. -- John C. Nemiah, M.D., Harvard Medical School; psychiatrist-in-chief, Beth Israel Hospital
