Psychotherapy with Impossible Cases: The Efficient Treatment of Therapy Veteransby Barry Duncan
Synopses & Reviews
This book, a companion to the authors' , describes therapy with a number of patients who had defeated numerous clinicians and become "veterans" of the system. Using a flexible approach that emphasizes relationship, hope, and a plan for the future, the authors turn these cases around, setting the clients on a path of independence and health.
Book News Annotation:
Presents insights from the authors' five-year study of therapy veterans, or "impossible" patients, proving that the key to success with such patients is in accommodating their frames of reference and honoring their theories of change. Shows how to learn the client's theory of change, and offers clinical examples and full-length cases demonstrating the approach in situations such as dissociative identity and borderline personality disorders. For professional therapists.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
A new approach, based on a five-year clinical study for clients who have not responded to treatment. Riveting, full-length cases clearly illustrate this new approach and should convince readers that successful treatment can occur when therapy is accommodated to the client's frame of reference and the client's theory of change is honored.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 209-214) and index.
