Reviews

"At last, we have the definitive book on psychodynamic therapy. The authors weave together traditional psychodynamic strategies and techniques with up-to-date developments in the field. The chapters are extremely well written, containing clinical examples that illustrate the strategies and techniques...I highly recommend this book to clinicians and students who want the latest on psychodynamic therapy." - Aaron T. Beck, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania Medical School, USA "This gem of a book fills an important gap in the dynamic therapy literature, incorporating cutting-edge research and conceptual advances while using jargon-free, experience-near language. The result is a scholarly, nuanced, and innovative work that will be highly useful for beginning clinicians, supervisors, and even experienced clinicians across all major theoretical orientations. Summers and Barber debunk outdated and stereotyped ideas about dynamic psychotherapy by describing in a clear, pragmatic manner the core principles and the unique aspects of a dynamic approach. The clinical examples are vivid and resonant...A 'must read'!" - Kenneth N. Levy, Department of Psychology, Pennsylvania State University, USA "This important work combines the wisdom of experienced therapists with current empirical research. The book includes thoughtful discussions of alliance, transference, and interpretation, along with newer understandings of narrative and trauma. Summers and Barber share what they know, based on systematic research; what they believe, based on clinical experience; and, especially, what works--the specific clinical strategies they have found to be helpful and effective." - Robert Michels, Walsh McDermott University Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry, Cornell University, USA "This timely, up-to-date, and remarkably useful book will be accessible to readers from a broad range of professional backgrounds. It will be of particular interest to therapists-in-training who are relatively unfamiliar with psychoanalytic theory and seek a hands-on guide that incorporates the latest developments in clinical thinking and research. At a time when many psychiatry residencies and clinical psychology graduate programs neglect to provide adequate training in this pivotal approach, the book provides a much-needed corrective. Summers and Barber convey the wisdom, clinical sophistication, and vitality of psychodynamic therapy in a way that speaks to the sensibilities and needs of a new generation of therapists. A wonderful contribution!" - Jeremy D. Safran, Professor and Director of Clinical Psychology, New School for Social Research, USA "This is the best book on psychotherapy that this former training director has ever read. It is rooted in both 21st-century science and the wisdom of psychiatry over the past two centuries. Students will value its lucidity, positivity, and common sense." - George E. Vaillant, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, USA
