Clinicians will appreciate the comprehensive, focused approach to all aspects of long-term treatment.
`Elegant and complex...well organized, well written, and exciting to read....an impressive report of sophisticated and valuable research that gives voice to the revitalization of dynamic psychotherapy research and to the notion that intensive psychotherapy is not just expensive but effective as well....The report of this research will become common knowledge to both researchers and clinicians interested in the therapeutic action of dynamic treatment.'
