The Dilemmas of Brief Psychotherapy
Health care reform has made short-term psychotherapy an increasingly popular treatment option. This informative volume explores the potential of brief psychotherapy through four paradigmatic modes of the individual's relationship to others: subservience, indecisiveness, entitlement, and fundamental fault - the latter of which deals with long-term, family-related emotional problems. The Dilemmas of Brief Psychotherapy uses cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, and systems approaches to show clinical psychology practitioners and students how to decipher and respond to the narratives of patients' lives. James Gustafson's highly readable treatise arms the modern practitioner with solutions to the myriad of problematic situations encountered throughout the course of a brief psychotherapy.
