Product Description

This manual is based on current neuroscience and treatment outcome studies that demonstrate the importance of focusing on the full range and depth of emotional and social functioning. Beginning with a classification of the spectrum of personality patterns and disorders found in individuals and then describing a profile of mental functioning that permits a clinician to look in detail at each of the patient's capacities, the entries include a description of the patient's symptoms with a focus on the patient's internal experiences as well as surface behaviors. Intended to expand on the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders)and ICD (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) efforts in cataloging the symptoms and behaviors of mental health patients, this manual opens the door to a fuller understanding of the functioning of the mind, brain, and their development.

5-0 out of 5 stars Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual
I am very pleased with the product ordered.It arrived when expected, but I was somewhat dissatisfied with the product packaging.The PDM was shipped to me at the Book Rate, which takes an agonizingly long time!I am unaware if other, more expeditious shipping options were available.The packaging was torn in transit, but the product, although exposed, was not damaged.I'm very pleased with my purchase and will certainly consider future orders with this seller.I might insist on future orders on expedited shipping and more careful packaging.ANG

5-0 out of 5 stars Surprising Here and There... and Well Worth the Price of Admission
I am not essentially a psychodynamicist (though I have written extensively on the Karpman Drama Triangle, codependence, and family of origin issues in the addictions.) I am fundamentally a cognitivist, and a rational-emotive one at that. Yet I found the PDM extremely enlightening and worthwhile, at least through the first 650 pages.

Rather than approach the topic as "better or worse than the DSM or ICD," I'm just going to touch upon some of the book's specific strong points:

Why else does the patient turn up in front of us? Because he is in pain. And he wants, first and foremost, to feel that he is -understood-. We could all use a little more empathy here. Odd, perhaps, that a "client-centered" notion seems to underly the principally psychodynamic creative effort here. But I'm gratefull that it does.

I found "The Internal Experience of Psychic Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress" on pages 100-106 to be some of the most accurately descriptivematerial I have run across on PTSD from the patient's perspective. I can assert that because I've spent quite a bit of time on both sides of the nursing station counter with this particular diagnosis. The PTSD sufferer really -suffers-; this section may help the practitioner understand precisely -how-.

In fact, the adaptation of the organizing principle of "The Internal Experience of..." to a range of diagnoses has lead to descriptions from pages 93-148 that struck me as some of the most-empathy-inducing I have encountered in the professional literature. I did not expect this from a "manual," and was very pleasantly surprised to find it.

While the section on "Infancy and Early Childhood" (pp. 320-375) is neither Brazelton & Cramer, Perry, Seigel, or Stern in terms of depth, detail or turn of phrase, I again found it to be surprisingly empathic for this format. The child is in front of us because he either hurts himself, causes his caregivers to hurt, or both. The descriptions of pretty much all that we have recognized thus far are effective, as well as discerning and discriminative.

The material on pp. 345-351 concerning the "Sensory Modulation Difficulties" will be an eye-opener for those who are not deeply grounded in early life research. Do parents over-stimulate their children into the doctor's office nowadays as much parents of two generations ago under-stimulated them? That is what I see in the real world, and it is well-addressed here.

Greenspan and Shanker's "Developmental Framework for Depth Psychology and a Definition of Healthy Emotional Functioning" on pp. 431-473 provides sufficient data for the psychodynamically-oriented therapist to understand at depth what he is seeing in front of him, and what needs to be done about it from a "re-developmental" perspective.

In it, I found myself able to construct a simple forumlation of remediation as a process of working back through the defense mechanisms of the psychotic-level demonstrations -- or truly "infantile" assessment of the environment -- then rebuilding through what may be developmentally incomplete, but hopefully temporary, borderline defenses, onto more developmentally complete, "societally normal neurotic" defenses... and even onto (if the patient is willing to foot the bill) -very- developmentally complete, reality-based, rational and empirical defenses.

Shevrin's "...Neurophysiological Frames of Reference to a Psychodynamic Nosology..." (pp. 483-506) helped me clarify the notion of specific "paths of dissociation" I have seen in so many adults molested as children, and other traumatees. I think van der Kolk, for one, would see the sensibility of Shevrin's "neuropsychological" theses here.

And for those looking for in-depth material on the increasingly popular SWAP diagnostic asssessment tool, there are 38 pages of it here (pp. 573-610) from Shedler and Westin themselves. Much of the article is a defense of the validity and reliability of the SWAP. But I was particularly taken with the adaptation of the SWAP concepts to a case history of borderline personality on page 591-592 in which BPD is effectively presented as a "defensive process" rather than as a set of traits.

This is, after all, what any of the personality disorders really are when we take a diagnostic snapshot over the course of an hour or two. Are we seeing any more than the lab results of the state of being at that particular moment? I think not, and that is vital for those who work with borderlines (and -any- of the other personality disorders, really) to understand.

In my view, the behavioral adaptations of the moment represent a point along an unfolding process of continuing, corrupted, Eriksonian development. No single assessment -- or diagnosis -- ever be cast in bronze. A "working hypothesis on this particular date" is more like it. I'm gratified, I suppose, to see that others understand this, as well.

I am not so taken with all the material that follows in the final 200 pages. But understanding the need to lay some empirical bedrock for the afforementioned theoretical constructs, I accept that it has to be there... even if it may do as much to put the afforementioned in question (for some readers) as it does to back it up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just for professionals who diagnose- The PDM will help you UNDERSTAND
An Expert Look at Love, Intimacy and Personal Growth
I Love You Madly! On Passion, Personality and Personal Growth, second edition
Yes it is a masterpiece in nosology, but it is not just for professionals who need to diagnose for a living. ANYONE who wants to understand personality- I mean the FULL range of personality should read as least pages 1 to 31! You will read the non-dogmatic culmination of over 100 years of research, case study and wisdom that is applicable to all theoretic orienations. I have taught the PDM to non and even anti-psychodynamic psychologists. What happens? Except for very few defensive types, the all loved it. [...]

5-0 out of 5 stars good
The PDM is very helpful and a good complement to the DSM-IV.Every good clinician should consult it...

5-0 out of 5 stars A magnificent compendium
I found this manual a useful resource for the evaluation and treatment of our consultants.
It's also an invaluable aid for teaching psychotherapy.
As it presents personality traits as a continuum, with emphasis in healthy functional patterns and healthy personality, the comprehension of psychopatology results a dynamic process, not a cold list of symtoms.

Editorial Review

Product Description
This is a book about cognition, emotion, memory, and learning.Along the way it examines exactly how implicit memory (knowing how) and explicit memory (knowing that)are connected with each other via the cerebellum.Since emotion is also related to memory, and most likely, one of its organising features, many fields of human endeavour have attempted to clarify its fundamental nature, including its relationship to metaphor, problem-solving, learning, and many other variables.This is an attempt to pull together the various strands relating to emotions, so that clinicians and researchers alike can identify precisely, and ultimately agree, upon what emotion is and how it contributes to the other known activities of mind and brain.

It is hoped this book will help our understanding of emotion psychoanalytically if we patiently delineate the complex picture of the human experience of emotion and integrate this with the efforts of brain scientists and psychoanalysts to understand how the mind view of emotion and the brain view of emotion connect.In the belief that the cerebellum plays a decisive role in emotion, we have tried in this book to convey this newest part of the story of emotion and the cerebellum with the utmost clarity and accuracy.

Editorial Review

Product Description
Mental health practitioners and students learning psychodynamic psychotherapyare often exposed to multiple schools of thought—Freudian theory, interpersonal theory, egotheory, object-relations theory, self-psychology, and affect theory. In this book, Scott Ahles,introduces and explains the major theories and integrates them into a model of psychodynamicsthat can be used to treat common psychiatric complaints.

After explaining the theories, Ahles, applies an integrated approach to two general areas ofpatient discomfort: problems with sense of self, such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, andfeelings of worthlessness; and problems with interpersonal relationships, such as difficultyforming long-term relationships, excessive shyness or fear of others, and aggressive personality. The psychotherapy of both problems of sense of self and interpersonal relationships are discussedand illustrated with clinical cases. Ahles also discusses the psychodynamic model in relation toneurobiological research into brain function, and he explores how psychotherapy can best becombined with pharmacotherapy. Throughout, the primary concepts of object relations and egopsychology are demonstrated with diagrams and case studies.

A valuable tool for teaching concepts to students of psychiatry, psychology, social work, andgeneral medicine, Our Inner World allows the future clinician to keep variouspsychodynamic aspects of the patient in mind during treatment. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description

Most of the existing psychodynamic literature approaches the treatment process from one particular theoretical perspective or another.  Yet, what contemporary psychotherapists need most is practical information that transcends individual perspectives.  After all, they must be able to treat patients who suffer from structural conflct, structural deficit, and relational conflict, and they must be able to understand the theories of therapeutic action associated with these concepts of psychopathology in relation to one another.

Understanding Therapeutic Action: Psychodynamic Concepts of Cure both surveys different theories of therapeutic action and offers an integrative model of treatment.  Editor Lawrence E. Lifson has brought together contributors who are among the leading theoreticians and practitioners of psychodynamic psychotherapy.  Their chapters cover all the major perspectives on therapeutic action and are ogranized into sections covering structural and object relations theories; the self as the focus of therapeutic action; and an integrative approach to the concept of cure.  The emphasis throughout is on the translation of theory in clinical practice, with attention given to the contributions of patient and therapist alike in the curative process.

Providing clinicians with a comprehensive overview and synthesis of the different models of therapeutic action, this collection is an illuminating exercise in comparative psychotherapy and a valuable tool for enhancing the applicability and effectiveness of clinical work.

Product Description
This well-documented and articulate manual gathers in one place the psychodynamic psychotherapy thinking and research on each of the Axis II personality disorders. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for Personality Disorders: A Clinical Handbook includes the work of 22 contributing writers in addition to the three primary authors, John F. Clarkin, Ph.D., Peter Fonagy, Ph.D., and Glen O. Gabbard, M.D. Each contributor has extensive clinical experience, and some also have research experience, with the assessment and treatment of specific personality disorders. The focus of the book is the psychodynamic conceptualization, assessment, and treatment of the personality disorders as currently described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The 16 chapters are divided into sections that address the definition of personality pathology, approaches to treatment, and research for future directions. The authors conclude that to the surprise of many new research and reviews indicate that psychodynamic treatments are effective for personality disorders, and their impact is as great as that of cognitive-behavioral treatments. ...

Product Description
This new edition of the classic psychodynamic psychiatry text Psychodynamic Psychiatry in Clinical Practice continues its tradition as the most readable, scholarly, and practical introduction to psychodynamic theory and practice available. Kept within arm's reach of all mental health professionals, this invaluable "one-stop" reference will prepare you to teach students and treat patients more effectively with its truly integrative psychodynamic approach.

The author has meticulously updated every chapter of the previous edition, adding new illustrative case examples and discussing the most recent research findings and concepts in psychodynamic psychiatry. It introduces the basic principles of psychodynamic psychiatry and the four fundamental theoretical frameworks derived from psychoanalytic theory: ego psychology, object relations theory, self psychology, and attachment theory. Drawing on the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience to validate the latest psychodynamic thinking, the author includes neuroanatomical illustrations that highlight the need to integrate psychoanalytic theories of development with brain development and the impact of environment on gene expression.

The eminently practical Psychodynamic Psychiatry in Clinical Practice is organized into three distinct sections based on DSM-IV diagnoses:

  • Section I, Basic Principles and Treatment Approaches in Dynamic Psychiatry, begins by laying a foundation in psychoanalytic theory. It focuses on how to apply psychoanalytic theory to specific types of evaluation and treatment, including psychodynamic assessment, brief therapy, individual and group psychotherapy, family and marital therapy, pharmacotherapy, and hospital/partial hospital treatment.
  • Section II, Dynamic Approaches to Axis I Disorders, covers the major psychiatric disorders and discusses how to apply psychodynamic understanding to the treatment of patients with these disorders.
  • Section III, Dynamic Approaches to Axis II Disorders, provides a psychodynamic understanding of personality disorders and covers in detail the principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy for these conditions.

The fourth edition of Psychodynamic Psychiatry in Clinical Practice details the theory of psychodynamic psychotherapy and the adaptation of psychodynamic thinking to specific disorders. As such, it is an ideal companion to Dr. Gabbard's Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: A Basic Text, which details the techniques of dynamic psychotherapy.

The bestselling Psychodynamic Psychiatry in Clinical Practice is the definitive reference for training programs of all kinds at all levels. This new edition provides a clear synthesis of diagnostic understanding and treatment unmatched in the literature. Marked by Dr. Gabbard's distinctly lucid and compelling prose, it is the ultimate psychiatric guide for the busy clinician and mental health student. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Strongly recommend this book
This book offers a great perspective by examining psychological disorders from a dynamic approach.It provides the reader with a new way of looking at various disorders from the DSM-IV-TR.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for therapists
This is a well written book which requires thought and some previous and accompanying understanding.I can not wait to read the in depth book about psychotherapy by Dr Gabbard.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for psychiatrists
This text is a wonderfully clear and easily understood book. Gabbard looks at the fundamentals of dynamic psychiatry and explains the principles behind the major schools of psychodynamic theory in such a way that even I can understand! In this edition, he adds some of the latest findings on neurobiology, offering a compelling integration of biological and psychological theories. This is the second edition I have bought, and for someone who usually avoids buying even one textbook, to have bought two of the same is saying something.

4-0 out of 5 stars great text, poor book production
this is a very good text. well written and useful. i'm just getting a little tired of paying a hundred bucks a pop for books that start to fall apart soon after i get them. in the case of the gabbard book, the binding holding the pages together was truly cheap and coming apart. just cheap production. i'm less concerned if the sideboards are on the less than totally solid and reliable side of production but don't produce a book and charge a hundred bucks for it and have the binding start to split at the first reading. really insulting to the buyer and the author. i'm sure apa could afford to forgo an additional ten cents per book and actually have their contracted book manufacturer use glue in the binding.

4-0 out of 5 stars this is a good book for psychiatrist.
i think as a psychiatrist using dynamic perspective to understand patient is very important. this is a good book for clinic work. ... Read more

Product Description
Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: A Basic Text, by leading psychotherapist and educator Glen O. Gabbard, M.D., instructs in both the core principles of this fundamental treatment modality and its practice in real-world treatment settings. This second edition expands on the theoretical, technical, and clinical issues addressed in the popular first edition. Since the first edition appeared in 2004, rigorous research revealed in major psychiatric and psychological journals has further confirmed the efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy and how it can improve the lives of patients over time. Those findings make a thorough understanding of key concepts, assessment, indications, formulation, interventions, and the goals of therapy crucial for emerging psychotherapy professionals. An innovative feature of the new edition is a companion DVD in which the author brings the text to life, giving psychiatric residents and other mental health professionals an invaluable glimpse of a senior clinician at work. The DVD illustrates key clinical problems encountered in psychiatry, psychology, or social work and proven solutions gathered over many years of actual clinical experience. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Review of Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Text
Well-written, easy to read but comprehensive description of basic issues, research behind,and technique of doing psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy.It brings together current thinking about such techniques, or rather, the ways of approaching and understanding the complex interaction between two subjects working together.Good, useful clinical examples.Good introduction to analytic concepts about psychotherapy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro
Add me to the list of people who really like this book.

For years, I've consulted Gabbard's book on Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (see my Amazon review from a few years ago) for ideas, even though I'm not primarily a psychodynamic therapist. It relates psychodynamic ideas to the DSM-IV in a valuable way, suggesting clinical formulations and potential treatment strategies.

The current book is a readable yet information-rich intro to psychodynamic therapies.This is a great intro and if I was teaching a course on psychodynamic therapy, I'd probably use this book.But it is also a great way for therapists (like me -- not trained in psychoanalysis, but sympathetic to the approach) to enhance their understanding and appreciation of this venerable approach.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great introductory book!
This is a great book for both graduate students and seasoned clinicians wishing to incorporate psychodynamic principles into their work.While many books about psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy require a sound grasp of jargon, Dr. Gabbard has done a great job presenting the material in a very palatable fashion.I would agree with one reviewer who stated that the reference section alone is the worth the price of the book.As someone who did not receive indepth training in psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy (I had been trained in CBT and systemic therapies), I found this to be a good launching point for further reading into psychodynamically oriented therapies(e.g. Mitchell & Greenberg; Fromm, Sullivan, etc.).If you are someone who has already received graduate level training in basic counseling/therapy skills, you might find yourself skipping over bits and pieces of the book.However, with that said, I would suggest this book to any counselor/therapist looking to incorporate psychodynamic thought into their work!

3-0 out of 5 stars Long Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
The book is well written and helpful for any mental health professional even if we differ with some of the issues presented.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well-written, concise and crystal clear
This is a an expensive, but really great book on long-term psychodynamic therapy which is often used to treat borderline personality disorders and other conditions that are more serious than the everyday problems of the average person.

It is actually a short book only being 210 pages.However, it covers a lot of ground and does it in a way that is easy to read.It introduces key concepts right at the beginning then it goes into assessment, indications and formulation.The next two chapters cover the nuts and bolts of psychotherapy and the role of the therapist.As a whole, the text does a great job of covering the end-to-end therapeutic process.

There are a lot of books on this topic, but this one is very clear, well-organized and covers the most important topics in just enough detail.There is not much fluff in this book and the clinical examples are useful and not overdone. ... Read more

Product Description
`I enjoyed and was challenged by reading this book, and learned from, and with, it. It is useful for browsing and for a deeper exploration of chosen topics. It offers a healthy enrichment for all who have a dynamic interest in the external and internal supervisory relationship. I warmly recommend it' - British Journal of Psychotherapy

`This book is thoughtful, scholarly and very well written. The content is well set out in separate sections making it eminently readable. It is solidly based on psychoanalytic theory highlighting the transformational impact of a supervisory process that is embedded in the dyadic relationships formed by the supervised patient - supervisee and the supervisee - supervisor. This book has greatly enriched my understanding of the supervisory process and the organizational life in which it transpires. It will be a richly informative resource for all involved in supervisory work' - Gemma Corbett, Self & Society

Based on the view that supervision is in itself both a developmental and a therapeutic process, Supervising Psychotherapy examines the fundamental knowledge needed to become a skilled and effective supervisor.

Written by a highly experienced team of trainers and supervisors, the book explores the triangular relationship which exists between supervisor, therapist and the absent patient or client. It describes in depth the complex dynamics which characterise this relationship, while avoiding the pitfalls of unconsciously colluding with or controlling the supervisee.

In supervising the practice of others, supervisors must draw not only on their experience as a therapist, but also on a firm understanding of how people learn and of how organisational factors can impinge on therapy and supervision. The book examines the interface between supervision and teaching and between supervision and organisation and offers guidance in relation to:

· unconscious processes in supervision

· the supervisory triangle

· supervising groups

· supervising short term therapy

· ethical practice

· timing and ending of supervision.

For those who are in the process of becoming supervisors and for those who already practising, Supervision in Psychotherapy is an enlightening and thought-provoking read.

Mary Banks, Christine Driver, Gertrud Mander, Edward Martin and John Stewart are all trained supervisors who have been or are currently involved in training others in supervision. All are members of the British Association for Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervision (BAPPS).

5-0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must have for any Theory Enthusiast
I ordered this book after it was listed as a suggested text on the syllabus in a Psychodynamic Theory course I was taking. I must say that this was by far the best investment I made this semester. Berzoff makes psychodynamic theory user friendly and an enjoyable reading experience. This book is a great companion to any psychodynamic theory text book and offers a different lens in which to view theory through. An absolute must have for any psychodynamic theory enthusiast.

Product Description
Psychodynamic psychotherapy offers people a chance to create new ways of thinking and behaving in order to improve the quality of their lives.

This book offers a practical, step-by-step guide to the technique of psychodynamic psychotherapy, with instruction on listening, reflecting, and intervening. It will systematically take the reader from evaluation to termination using straightforward language and carefully annotated examples. Written by experienced educators and based on a tried and tested syllabus, this book provides clinically relevant and accessible aspects of theories of treatment processes. The workbook style exercises in this book allow readers to practice what they learn in each section and more “actively” learn as they read the book.

This book will teach you:

  • About psychodynamic psychotherapy and some of the ways it is hypothesized to work
  • How to evaluate patients for psychodynamic psychotherapy, including assessment of ego function and defenses
  • The essentials for beginning the treatment, including fostering the therapeutic alliance, setting the frame, and setting goals
  • A systematic way for listening to patients, reflecting on what you’ve heard, and making choices about how and what to say
  • How to apply the Listen/Reflect/Intervene method to the essential elements of psychodynamic technique
  • How these techniques are used to address problems with self esteem, relationships with others, characteristic ways of adapting, and other ego functions
  • Ways in which technique shifts over time

This book presents complex concepts in a clear way that will be approachable for all readers.  It is an invaluable guide for psychiatry residents, psychology students, and social work students, but also offers practicing clinicians in these areas a new way to think about psychodynamic psychotherapy. The practical approach and guided exercises make this an exceptional tool for psychotherapy educators teaching all levels of learners.

Praise for Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: A Clinical Manual

"This book has a more practical, hands-on, active learning approach than existing books on psychodynamic therapy."

Bob Bornstein, co-editor of Principles of Psychotherapy; Adelphi University, NY

"Well-written, concise and crystal clear for any clinician who wishes to understand and practice psychodynamic psychotherapy.  Full of real-world clinical vignettes, jargon-free and useful in understanding how to assess, introduce and begin psychotherapy with a patient.  Extraordinarily practical with numerous examples of how to listen to and talk with patients while retaining a sophistication about the complexity of the therapeutic interaction. My trainees have said that this book finally allowed them to understand what psychodynamic psychotherapy is all about! "

Debra Katz, Vice Chair for Education at the University of Kentucky and Director of Psychiatry Residency Training

"This volume offers a comprehensive learning guide for psychodynamic psychotherapy training."

Robert Glick, Professor, Columbia University ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Despite the constraints and challenges imposed by managed care, many psychodynamic clinicians are finding ways to work successfully within this pervasive type ofhealth care arrangement. This clear, straightforward book shows how. Grounded in the authors' high professional standards and commitment to psychodynamic principles, the book provides the information and guidance that therapists need to communicate effectively with managed care decision makers, maximize the likelihood of obtaining treatment authorization, and adapt to the demands of time-limited treatment. Extensive case material and concrete examples illustrate ways to "translate" case formulations, treatment plans, and reports into an alternative functional language more readily accepted by managed care, without compromising the psychodynamic conceptual framework. A range of brief dynamic therapy models and techniques are described, and their implications for managed care practice are explored. Clinicians also learn how to present an empirically based rationale and appropriate documentation for their services; select and make use of treatment outcome measures; and deal with clinical and ethical dilemmas that are likely to arise. Useful appendices list additional resources for clinicians and include a glossary of health care and health insurance terminology. ... Read more
