With all of the expert-authored content that made previous editions indispensable references for students and practitioners alike, this third edition of The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies: A Practitioner's Guide has been updated to reflect this rapidly changing field.

Most chapters include new material that documents recent developments within existing models, and new chapters tackle topics that include the following: • Multicultural practice• Mentalizing• Motivational interviewing• Dialectical behavior therapy• Telepsychiatry• Internet-based interventions

All chapters summarize the ideas underlying each modality, the evidence for effectiveness, and the techniques and interventions central to each.

In this edition, the DVD of videos has been replaced with 40 updated streaming videos -- available on desktop and mobile devices -- that show experienced practitioners engaged in a range of brief therapies, allowing for a deeper and richer learning experience for readers.

In a national and global environment of limited economic resources and multiple demands on patients' time, short-term treatment modalities are increasingly important. Integrating theory, research, and step-by-step procedures, The Art and Science of Brief Psychotherapies is an ideal introduction to the range of short-term therapies for psychiatry residents, psychology interns, social work students, and experienced practitioners looking to broaden their practice.
