In a national and global environment of limited economic resources and multiple demands on patients' time, short-term treatment modalities are increasingly important. Integrating theory, research, and step-by-step procedures, The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies is an ideal introduction to the range of short-term therapies for psychiatry residents, psychology interns, social work students, and experienced practitioners looking to broaden their practice.
In this Third Edition of the Practitioners Guide to Brief Psychotherapies, Dewan, Steenbarger, and Greenberg bring together several master therapists who provide step-by-step treatment delivery instructions for their respective approaches. In addition, in the accompanying videos readers get to see how the principles are put into practice by the master therapists themselves. A must have resource for anyone who is learning to do therapy briefly. --Joshua K. Swift, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Idaho State University

Huprich, Ph.D., L.P., Fellow of APA Division 29, Professor of Psychology, Editor, Journal of Personality Assessment, President-Elect, International Society for the Study of Personality Disorders, Department of Psychology, University of Detroit
