Reviews
Review Quotes
"No one can read all the journals in our hugely expanding domain of psychotherapy. That is why an edited, and well-selected, spectrum of view is so valuable. This book contains important summations by many of the research leaders of our field and will provide clinicians with a valuable overview. Dr. Janowsky is to be both thanked and congratulated."- Mardi J. Horowitz, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Director, Center on Stress and Personality, Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, San Francisco, California
The broad coverage of a wealther of cable pedigree of the authorship must establish this as a potentially important source text for psychotherapy researchers.
"The broad coverage of a wealther of cable pedigree of the authorship must establish this as a potentially important source text for psychotherapy researchers."- British Journal of Psychiatry , August 2000
"This is a most timely update on the state of the value of psychotherapy. At a time when academic departments of psychiatry are questioning whether to persist with training in the various modalities of psychotherapy, this book provides a resounding positive answer. The chapters are well organized to present what we know and what we are able to do with such knowledge on psychotherapy. Under the pressure to streamline all psychiatric treatments-which for all too many meant a movement to the biological aspects of treatment, the mental health professions have rapidly embraced the 'new pharmacology' of the 1990's. Until this book, it has been a quiescent time for the psychotherapies-an almost 'where have all the flowers gone interval.' The 'flowers' are all back and blooming in abundance. To the editor and all his contributors, a job extremely well done!"- Samuel J. Keith, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico
"This volume is a most welcome contribution. Its chapter provide a serious sampling of the world of psychotherapy research, both current and recent past."- Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

Summaries
Main Description
A combination of scientifically-driven techniques and an art incorporating creativity, intuitiveness, and empathy, psychotherapy is well worth celebrating, refining, and expanding. But just as scientific study of psychotherapy is demonstrating how very effective it is, economic, political, and social pressures are undercutting the profession's ability to offer effective treatment. It is more crucial than ever for practitioners to understand the dynamics that affect outcomes. Psychotherapy Indications, Outcomes, and Mechanisms reviews the current status of psychotherapy, in the 1990's, with attention to the existing evidence of its efficacy and underlying mechanisms that appear related to positive and negative outcomes. The book is an up-to-date compendium of research by esteemed leaders in the field of psychotherapy investigation. It covers: The interpersonal, patient, therapist, underlying personality, and general patient characteristics that determine psychotherapeutic outcome The nature, theory, and efficacy of dialectical behavioral therapy in treating borderline personality disorder Interpersonal therapy An effective group therapy model for the treatment of cancer and medical illness sufferers Family therapy in general and in the treatment of psychotic patients Methodological considerations in psychotherapy and psychopharmacological research The relationship of psychotherapy to managed care and important perspectives on psychotherapy's survival in these current difficult times This book provides a clear view of the scientific basis underlying psychotherapy practice and research. Complete with extensive references and illustrative tables and graphs, it will be an invaluable source of information to practitioners, researchers, and graduate students.
