NEW FROM SPRINGER PUBLISHING COMPANY
UNIFYING PSYCHOTHERAPY: PRINCIPLES, METHODS, AND EVIDENCE FROM CLINICAL SCIENCE
Unified psychotherapy, considered to be a significant new paradigm in the evolution of psychotherapy, is a multicomponent biopychosocial systems model that draws from all of the major psychotherapeutic paradigms and is grounded in the relational matrix. This book provides a comprehensive examination, analysis, and appraisal of unified psychotherapy with a practice-friendly presentation of its theoretical and evidence-based foundations, principles, and methods. It offers clinicians and students a framework for using unified psychotherapy and includes specific intervention strategies that can be used with the full spectrum of individuals suffering from psychological disorders and relational disturbances. It has been written by a recipient of the 2006 APA Award for Distinguished Professional Contribution to Independent or Institutional Practice in the Private Sector for his work in unifying psychotherapy and personality systematics, and the Co-Founders and Co-Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Unified Psychotherapy and Clinical Science.
The book describes a paradigm that is anchored in a holistic biopsychosocial systems model of personality and psychopathology and encompasses four domain levels ranging from microscopic to macroscopic. Detailed assessment and treatment principles consider the interplay between the components of all four levels of the multicomponent biopsychosocial systems model. Evidence-based interventions that are clearly described along with case illustrations underscore the importance of flexibility as an essential component in using unified psychotherapy. The book also discusses current developments in psychotherapy, clinical science, and the discipline of psychology itself as they bear on the use of unified therapy.
• Presents a state-of-the art examination, analysis, and appraisal of unified psychotherapy as the next wave in the evolution of the field
• Details the theoretical and evidence-based foundations, principles, and methods of a specific unified approach to psychotherapy
• Provides an organizing metatheoretical model that draws on all domains to form a unifying framework to guide therapeutic processes and practices
