Concise, practical manual for psychodynamic psychotherapy clinical practice. I will be referring to this for case notes.

I found this to be a solid introductory textbook. I appreciated its thorough discussion of every aspect of the patient that a therapist should pay attention to (e.g. Affect, dreams, various ego functions), though I also found that this made some of the book seem repetitive. It's truly a basic text, and functions well in that capacity, but there's not a whole lot of depth. I did really appreciate the multitude of examples, and the exercises to practice techniques.

This is a really good manual and gave me amazing insight into Pyschodynamic Psychotherapy. I loved the fact that is was straight to the point and didnt bore me with long explainations or discussions that just seem to go on forever. The author wanted to get the points across, not just hear herself speak (or write).

This is a very useful and insightful book. Very practical manual for practitioner.

To be honest, i felt a little sad as i finish the last chapter. It's as if i have to say goodbye to a wise teacher. (I must do therapy on my own now :)

Thank you
