Synopsis

Mastering the art of supportive psychotherapy demands years of training and experience -- and Learning Supportive Psychotherapy: An Illustrated Guide paves the way. This book, along with the accompanying DVD, serves as a trustworthy guide to mastering the rudiments of supportive psychotherapy from the initial interview through the therapeutic progression to the very last session.



The authors, preeminent figures in psychiatry, describe the basic principles and objectives of supportive psychotherapy, with emphasis on the critical importance of the therapeutic relationship and how to develop a positive therapeutic alliance. They have written an extremely accessible text that provides practical hands-on instruction to beginning psychotherapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, and others who require the fundamentals of psychotherapeutic patient care.



Supportive psychotherapy has been recognized as a core competency, and readers seeking the requisite skills will find an advantage in this volume's beneficial features: Insightful perspective on the origins and development of supportive psychotherapy, locating it on the psychodynamic therapy spectrum, and distinguishing it from the expressive psychotherapies in terms of objectives, process, and outcomes Expert instruction on conducting a thorough assessment and evaluation of a patient, with emphasis on techniques for conducting a comprehensive initial interview, exploring the patient's manifesting problems, taking an accurate patient history, eliciting useful information, and identifying supportive measures -- all of which are crucial to establishing a therapeutic relationship Specialized focus on useful techniques, including alliance building, esteem building, encouragement, promoting adaptive behaviors, anticipatory guidance, reducing and preventing anxiety, naming the problem, rationalizing and reframing, expanding awareness, clarification, interpretation, and much more Critical information on how to intervene in a crisis to facilitate the patient's personal growth rather than physical and psychological deterioration Significant clinical illustrations, vignettes, and case studies to help the reader make connections between theoretical concepts and real-world applications.



This text follows one of the three formats now required for psychiatry residency training by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and provides newly credentialed psychiatrists with the basic tools needed to treat the broad range of patients they encounter. Like the other books in the Core Competencies series, it is a valuable adjunct to the traditional methods of psychotherapy education and an indispensable resource for the profession.
