About this title:

Pittsburgh Pocket Psychiatry Series

This is an introductory text on psychological theories and psychotherapy that approaches the topic from a multidisciplinary perspective. It lays out a specific sequence for learning psychotherapy that emphasizes the fundamental importance of acquiring an appropriate foundational knowledge base in addition to learning the specific techniques of psychotherapies.

Beyond emphasizing the details of major treatment models, as well as the theory and research findings that inform the field of psychotherapy in general, a specific learning sequence is laid out that will guide the reader toward developing early competence as a psychotherapist. Psychoanalytic theory and behaviour theory are each presented in historical context, with explanations and clear distinctions made among categories of each. These include classical psychoanalytic theory, ego psychology, object relations, the interpersonal school, intersubjective and relational approaches, learning theory (including classical and operant conditioning), cognitive theory, and mindfulness-based approaches.

Key features:

  • Psychological theories are presented in historical context to make the concepts both more useful and more memorable
  • Psychodynamic theory is presented alongside behavioural theory to enhance the reader's understanding of the full gamut of psychological theory upon which psychotherapies are based
  • Sections on the neurobiological correlates of psychotherapy, as well as current research findings from both psychology and psychiatry, provide a multidisciplinary perspective
  • Psychotherapy skills applicable to all psychotherapies are presented, along with detailed discussion of how to learn psychotherapy.

Readership: Psychiatry residents, but also of relevance to other students and practitioners in the medical and mental health fields.

Authors: Andrew Koffmann and M Grace Walters
