At the time Dr. Glen O. Gabbard's first edition of Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapycame out in 2004, the Psychiatry Residency Review Committee (RRC) mandated that all psychiatric residents must become competent in five different psychotherapies, including psychodynamic psychotherapy. Just a few years later, the RRC reduced the number of mandated psychotherapies from five to three, with psychodynamic psychotherapy being one of the triad needed in training. Also during that time, much rigorous research appeared in the pages of major psychiatric and psychological journals further confirming the efficacy and value of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: A Basic Text, Second Edition,is focused on the key concepts, assessment, indications, formulations, therapist interventions, goals of therapy, and the mechanisms of therapeutic action all mental health professionals need in their daily clinical experience. In this manual, Dr. Gabbard expands on the application of basic theory and techniques in actual clinical practice. Therapeutic topics are brought to life on a companion DVD that gives students and residents a visual reference to the text through video vignettes of a senior clinician at work.As useful to educators as it is to students, Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapyserves as a guide to understanding the thinking behind the therapist's actions in a wide variety of situations. This "fly on the wall" glimpse into therapeutic mechanisms helps future psychologists, social workers, licensed counselors, nurses and others put psychodynamic psychotherapy into the proper context for long-term, successful treatment. This manual delves into the goals of therapy and the mechanisms for therapeutic action, including: • Assessment• Indications and formulation• Therapist intervention• Using fantasies and dreams in therapeutic action• Identifying and working with countertransference• Optimal use of supervisionIn addition to the DVD that serves as a guide to understanding the thinking behind the therapist's choices, this book also features a greatly expanded discussion of the evidence base for psychodynamic psychotherapy and a more extensive discussion on gender in transference. It also updates the neurobiological correlation between dreaming and its implications in psychotherapy and elaborates on the contribution of resistance to contemporary thinking.Equally important, Long-Term Psychodynamic Psychotherapyprovides its readers with a clear road map to greater understanding through practical, hands-on application such as case writeups, oral presentations at case conferences, written examinations, oral examinations, videotaped recordings and direct observations, audiotape recordings, and supervision to help build competent skills and broad knowledge.
