Reach a new stage in brief therapy

Is it possible for clinicians to provide in-depth therapy in the cost-conscious, time-limited world of managed care?

This groundbreaking book offers clinicians new hope of maintaining professional satisfaction in time-effective practice. Authors Bruce Ecker and Laurel Hulley provide a practical guide for clinicians on how to work deeply and briefly with individuals, couples, and families, and shows how to meet the challenge of managed care without losing the deeper levels of change traditionally associated with long-term or existential work.

By using Depth-Oriented Brief Therapy, you'll work directly and immediately with the emotional and unconscious meanings that structure the very existence of the presenting problem.


"A challenging, precise, and exciting approach to therapy that will delight those therapists who celebrate the complexity of clients. Ecker and Hulley combine a thoughtful attention to the unconscious with a commitment to making every session count. Gutsy, convincing, and powerful!" (David B. Waters, Ph.D., professor family practice and psychiatry, University of Virginia, author of Competence, Courage and Change)
