Time-Limited Psychotherapy by James Mann
  

Synopsis

Time-Limited Psychotherapy by James Mann

Waiting lists in psychiatric clinics and increasing numbers of patients in long-term psychotherapy have highlighted the need for shorter methods of treatment. Existing forms of short-term psychotherapy tend to be vague and uncertain, lacking as they do a clearly formulated rationale and methodology.

Reviews

The detailed examples and the clear, concise, well-organized exposition of theory and method should make this book especially appealing to therapists in psychoanalytic training. Its chief value in this context is its convincing demonstration that psychoanalytic concepts are not incompatible with brief, time-limited therapy. American Journal of Psychiatry An important and stimulating contribution to the rapidly growing literature on brief psychotherapy. It deserves a wide readership among all mental health professionals and should encourage spirited discussion and clinical research. Social Casework
