From the Back Cover:

In this groundbreaking book, authors Bruce Ecker and LaurelHulley show how to work directly and immediately with the emotionaland unconscious meanings that structure the very existence of thepresenting problem, making in-depth therapy so effective as to bebrief. Depth-Oriented Brief Therapy represents a new stagein brief therapy and offers clinicians new hope of maintainingprofessional satisfaction in the time-effective practice demandedby today???s managedcare environment.

“This is a brilliant, breakthrough book. Ecker and Hulleyhave created a psychotherapy which is at once analytic,phenomenological, and experiential, based not only on thisintegration, but on recent developments in cognitive science. Thisinnovative context raises each of these fields to new levels ofefficacy and depth. Accessible, nonpathologizing language,sophisticated yet profoundly simple theory, and powerfultherapeutic process combine to make this work of the highestsignificance. I have rarely been this impressed.”
—STEPHEN M. JOHNSON, PHD, author ofCharacter Styles, The Symbiotic Character, Humanizing theNarcissistic Style, and CharacterologicalTransformation.

“A challenging, precise, and exciting approach to therapythat will delight those therapists who celebrate and cherish thecomplexity of clients. Ecker and Hulley combine a thoughtfulattention to the unconscious with a commitment to makingevery session count. Gutsy, convincing, andpowerful!”
—DAVID B. WATERS, PHD, professor offamily practice and psychiatry, University of Virginia, and authorof Competence, Courage, and Change

“This book offers creative examples of how constructivismcan be applied in clinical practice. The authors show how anexperiential approach to felt meanings can help clients explorealternative personal realities. This is recommendedreading.”
—MICHAEL J. MAHONEY, PHD, professor ofpsychology, University of North Texas, and author of HumanChange Processes

From the Inside Flap:

As the demand for time-limited, demonstrably effective psychotherapy increasingly dominates the mental health professions, many therapists are caught between this demand and their aversion to brief therapy, which they see as sacrificing vital qualities of the work—the depth and durability of resolution reached, the thoroughness of change in the emotional and unconscious basis of the problem, the trust-based client-therapist relationship. These therapists are asking: Is it possible for clinicians to provide in-depth therapy in the cost-conscious, time-limited world of managed care? In this groundbreaking book, authors Bruce Ecker and Laurel Hulley show how to work directly and immediately with the emotional and unconscious meanings that structure the very existence of the presenting problem, making in-depth therapy so effective as to be brief. This book represents a new stage in brief therapy and offers clinicians new hope of maintaining professional satisfaction in time-effective practice.From start to finish, this book is a practical guide to working deeply and briefly with individuals, couples, and families and includes:

  • a clear and complete methodology and conceptual framework for producing lasting change beyond symptom relief
  • a compAndium of specific techniques for depth-oriented brief therapy
  • how to work time-effectively with clients whose presenting symptoms are driven by unresolved, lifelong emotional wounds
  • abundant case examples with clients who suffer from a wide range of presenting symptoms, such as low self-esteem, chronic depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, agoraphobia, symbiotic attachment, dissociation, psychogenic pain, and sequelae of sexual abuse.
Depth-Oriented Brief Therapy is written for therapists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, and other helping professionals who want to meet the challenge of managed care without losing the deeper levels of change traditionally associated with long-term
