A six-book set of quick-reference, multimedia guides to key protocols all therapists need to know.
Rigorously field-tested by on-the-ground clinicians, these practical guidebooks—collected here in a six-book set—provide easy-to-use, evidence-based summaries of core therapy techniques. Filled with self-test questionnaires, case studies, diagrams, exercises, and role play transcripts, they are ideal teaching and learning resources. Accompanying each guide is a DVD featuring an hour-long video of sample therapy sessions and clinical explications, as well as a handy practice-reminder card that summarizes key information about each therapy technique.

"An extraordinarily lucid and helpful discussion of the tenets and techniques of psychotherapy. The presentation draws on current research and the case presentations are not only gripping but also studded with brief clear discussions of the reasons for each therapist comment. A superb training manual for therapists." - Irvin Yalom, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University and author of "The Gift of Therapy"
'At last! Here is that rarity, a book that actually tells you how to do the job of psychotherapy -- laying out the detailed workings of forming a therapeutic alliance, deepening emotional engagement, tactfully tackling trauma, and transforming therapist-client relationship strain into therapeutic opportunity. The accessible, learning-oriented format, with extensive annotated extracts from therapy sessions provide ideal teaching material for all mental health professionals. Simple without being simplistic, demystifying while acknowledging complexity, readable and reliable, energizing yet evidence-based, it is destined for a place in every therapist's and would-be therapist's backpack. - Prof Jeremy Holmes MD FRCPsych University of Exeter UK
"Psychotherapy Essentials To Go is a truly impressive series of books. Elevating pragmatics over dogma, it is grounded in the wisdom of front-line psychotherapists who adapt the core principles of empirically supported psychotherapies to flexibly address a myriad of clinical issues. I can think of no other series of psychotherapy handbooks as skillfully concise and yet thorough. It will quickly become a standard reference for teaching and enhancing clinical competence." - Zindel V. Segal, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Psychology in Mood Disorders, University of Toronto-Scarborough; author of The Mindful Way Through Depression
