Jeremy D. Safran, whose work has systematically broadened the scope of cognitive therapy by integrating principles from other therapeutic traditions, probes critical clinical and theoretical issues in this volume of seminal papers. He begins by outlining the implications of interpersonal theory for cognitive therapy, and proceeds to examine emotion and attachment theory, revolutionizing thinking about the role of emotion in the process of change. Chapters on ruptures in the therapeutic alliance provide a sophisticated approach to working with difficult patients. The concluding section on psychotherapy integration highlights the importance of dialogue among diverse therapeutic traditions as a way for clinicians to see and advance beyond their own preconceptions.

Review:

Blending theory, research, and practice, Safran's collection creatively integrates cognitive-behavioral, experiential, and interpersonal therapies, and explores how the therapeutic focus on affect, the therapeutic relationship, clients' misperceptions of self and others, and ineffective actions all come into play in the change process. In short, the book is a fine and invaluable guide for professionals seeking to deepen their understanding of that process and to enhance their clinical effectiveness. -- Marvin R. Goldfried, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, State University of New York at Stony Brook

Jeremy Safran is one of the most insightful and innovative cognitive therapists writing today. His scholarly and clinically sophisticated contributions have had a tremendous impact on contemporary theory and practice, and this long-awaited book is sure to delight the large audience of readers who are already familiar with his work and provide a valuable introduction to those who are not. -- T.D. Borkovec, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Psychology, The Pennsylvania State University

Safran's contributions to the advancement of psychotherapy integration and his explorations of the therapeutic relationship and the role of emotions in psychotherapy have been creative and valuable. The papers in this volume will be of substantial interest to clinicians and researchers alike. -- Paul Wachtel, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, City University of New York

This clear and beautifully written text fills an important gap in the psychotherapy literature. Mental health therapists of all modalities will broaden their understanding of the essential role of emotions and the unconscious in the cognitive process of change. A vital resource for the new millennium. -- Frank M. Dattilio, Ph.D., Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
