Treating Affect Phobia: A Manual for Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This hands-on manual for short-term dynamic psychotherapy emphasizes "affect phobia," or conflict about feelings, and reflects the ongoing evolution of the approach first presented in Changing Character (1997), by McCullough. Demonstrating procedures for assessing patients, formulating core conflicts, and restructuring defenses, affects, and relationship to the self and others, the manual includes a wealth of case studies and written exercises. The book may be used as a clinical resource and text for teachers, students, and practitioners. Topics include affect phobia, psychodynamic conflict, and Malan's two triangles; defense recognition and relinquishing; and building compassion and care for self.
