(on the first edition)-- "Journal of Clinical Psychiatry" (7/1/2011 12:00:00 AM) "For the newcomer the book offers a comprehensive framework for approaching the patient in actual clinical practice. For seasoned practitioners it offers a refocused perspective on ongoing therapeutic work. For the teacher the text provides an excellent outline for focusing on the clinical situation. For the researcher it offers a framework that lends itself to use as a research manual." (on the first edition)-- "Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association" (4/1/2011 12:00:00 AM) "Summers and Barber focus the light of empirical evidence on this treatment and on its competitors in a clear, concise, and well organized format....We recommend this book to supervisors and their students." (on the first edition)-- "Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Psychiatry" (1/1/2011 12:00:00 AM) "This book has enormous value to both students and advanced practitioners. We hope that this book is adopted by institutes, graduate programs, and medical schools as a promising text to teach psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as a means of enhancing its effectiveness and preserving its credibility."

(on the first edition)-- "Clinical Psychology Forum" (10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM) "This is among the very best books on practicing psychotherapy. The authors beautifully illustrate how to apply evidence-based principles to particular patients' problems--the chapters on psychodynamic formulation, therapeutic focus, and building a personal story provide rich material for individualizing treatment. Therapists at all levels of training and from diverse theoretical perspectives will benefit from reading this excellent second edition."--George Silberschatz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of California, San Francisco; President, San Francisco Psychotherapy Research Group "Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a powerful clinical tool. This approach--and the evidence for its effectiveness--needs to be clearly introduced and articulated to new therapists and those who wish to broaden their skills. Summers, Barber, and Zilcha-Mano illuminate crucial therapeutic ideas and applications in this readable, clear book. Like the first edition, the second edition of this guide is certain to become a mainstay in psychotherapy curricula."--Barbara Milrod, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
