The past quarter century has been a time of monumental change for psychotherapy. Myriad new therapies and novel variations on older ones have swelled the ranks of recognized therapeutic approaches to more than 400. Advances in the understanding of the neurophysiology of mental disorders have led to a new generation of drugs that do more than merely suppress symptoms. And the ascendancy of managed care has spawned an increasing demand for brief, "results-oriented" treatment. Through all of these changes, Principles of Psychotherapy has endured. Generations of clinicians have valued its breadth of coverage and accessibility as well as the author's singular ability to gather the many elements of this diverse discipline into a single, unified presentation. Dr. Irving Weiner succeeded at a seemingly impossible task: to identify universal principles applicable to every psychotherapeutic approach; to delineate the substance of modern psychotherapy theory and research; and to integrate principle, theory, and research into simple guidelines for conducting therapy, from initial interview to termination of treatment. Like its celebrated predecessor, this long-awaited Second Edition offers therapists conceptually based guidelines for conducting effective psychotherapy. Dr. Weiner has rewritten his classic text in terms of clinical thinking and practice in the late 1990s. Within the framework of dynamic personality theory, Principles of Psychotherapy, Second Edition addresses the full range of basic issues in psychotherapy with a complete survey of its elements, processes, current treatment techniques, and phases. Writing with eloquent simplicity and citing hundreds of contemporary sources, Dr. Weiner presents the conceptual and empirical foundations that support his approach and offers helpful case examples that illustrate vividly what a therapist might say and do in various circumstances. Steeped in the latest research and attentive to practical concerns of the day, this new edition of Dr. Weiner's classic work is must reading for psychotherapists and psychotherapists-in-training in all mental health professions.
