This guide presents seven brief psychodynamic therapy models, including: supportive therapy; time-limited therapy; interpersonal therapy; time-limited dynamic psychotherapy; short-term dynamic therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder; brief dynamic therapy for substance abuse disorders; and brief psychodynamic psychotherapy with children. The models are established short-term approaches to common clinical problems and can accomodate the ten- to 20-minutes session time frame found in most managed care settings. Each chapter focuses on a particular approach, and matches particular patient problems best handled by that approach. The book discusses each model in terms of its overall framework, selection criteria, goals, therapeutic tasks and strategies, empirical support, and relevance for managed care. Clinical cases are provided to illustrate how each model is applied. A separate chapter covering the use of psychopharmacology in brief psychotherapy is also included.
