This book is an accessible and comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of short-term treatment. It opens with a chapter on the theoretical foundations of the method before leading to its practical applications in clinical practice. It is highly recommended for all mental health professionals.

Traditionally, psychoanalytic treatment has been a lengthy endeavour, requiring a long-term commitment from patient and analyst, as well as vast financial resources. More recently, short-term approaches to psychoanalytic treatment have proliferated. One of the most well-known and thoroughly-studied is the groundbreaking method of Intensive Short term Dynamic Psychotherapy, developed by Dr Habib Davanloo. Having trained directly with Dr Davanloo, the author has written a clear, concise outline of the method that has come to be regarded as a classic in the field. The book is organized in a systematic fashion, analogous to the process of the therapy itself, from initial contact through to termination and follow-up. Detailed clinical examples are presented throughout the text to illustrate how theory is translated into techniques of unparalleled power and effectiveness.
