Psychotherapy

An Introduction for Psychiatry Residents and Other Mental Health Trainees

Many psychiatry residents and other mental health trainees begin their careers as psychotherapists with a mixture of enthusiasm and apprehension: enthusiasm at the prospect of using only words and actions to help someone in distress; apprehension about whether they are capable of doing it. In his latest book, Phillip R. Slavney helps these students get started by discussing such fundamental issues as what makes psychotherapy work, what is important in a psychotherapeutic relationship, and whether psychotherapists should have their own psychotherapy. Slavney draws on his long experience as a psychotherapist and teacher of psychotherapy in a confidence-building book that is both practical and scholarly.

Reviews

"Written in an engaging, informal style, and is replete with the sorts of examples that can only come from an extended period of experience."—Tony O'Brien, Mental Health Net

"A helpful book and one that has a place as a first volume for residents beginning to practise psychotherapy."—Laura Stovel, Canadian Journal of Psychiatry

"The writing style is easy and conversational . . . will appeal to students for its ability to address their fears and to instructors and supervisors, because it contains a number of conversations worth having with students of psychotherapy."—Caroline Fisher, M.D., Ph.D., Psychiatric Services

"An excellent contribution to students. Most trainees do not have the perfect book to guide them in psychotherapy supervision—this is it."—S. Nassir Ghaemi, M.D., Cambridge Health Alliance, Harvard Medical School

"Dr. Slavney, a distinguished scholar and esteemed clinician and teacher, has provided an invaluable tool for psychiatry residents beginning to learn psychotherapy."—James L. Griffith, M.D., George Washington University School of Medicine
