Buy this Book

The focus of the completely revised 5th edition is the practice of guideline psychotherapy including the application process. The central topic is the many decisions that should be made before starting therapy. Questions about treatment technique (dealing with transference and countertransference, scenic understanding, “as if fantasies”) as an expression of the basic therapeutic attitude are included. Special attention is paid to the tension between the therapist’s affective responses and his or her critical self-reflection: clearly prepared didactically with many case studies. A comprehensive new chapter on supervision in therapeutic practice rounds off the book convincingly in this 5th edition.
