Summary
"This book provides students and novice clinicians with nuts-and-bolts advice about the process of doing therapy, starting with the first contact with a new patient. Suzanne Bender and Edward Messner - a junior clinician and a seasoned practitioner and supervisor - provide a unique, combined perspective on how therapy is conducted, what works and doesn't work in treatment, and the basic elements of good therapist self-care. Organized around the treatment of one fictitious patient, with other case examples brought in as needed to illustrate special topics, the book speaks directly to the questions, concerns, and insecurities that beginning therapists typically face. Written with candor and empathy, it offers authoritative guidance for understanding and resolving common clinical dilemmas." "Each clearly structured chapter opens with a concise summary, examines a specific stage in the therapeutic process, and offers workable suggestions for practice. Covered are such real-world tasks as setting up appointments and discussing payment, handling latecomers and no-shows, conducting effective assessments while setting patients at ease, and formulating a treatment plan. Recommendations are provided for handling mundane and serious clinical concerns, including suicidality, and for integrating psychopharmacology with psychotherapy. Emphasis is also given to the therapeutic relationship: how to recognize transference and countertransference, navigate issues of consent and compliance, and much more. A wealth of sample therapist-patient dialogues are included to guide the novice therapist who feels at a loss for words, while also illustrating certain situations worth avoiding. The book concludes with a helpful glossary and suggestions for further reading." "Filling a prevalent gap in clinical training, this is an invaluable resource for practitioners and advanced students in any of the mental health disciplines, including clinical and counseling psychology, psychiatry, social work, and psychiatric nursing. It serves as a highly practical text in graduate-level psychotherapy courses."--BOOK JACKET
