Richard B. Makover, M.D., is Lecturer in Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut.
This is a great addition to the literature for psychotherapists. With an easy to read framework, it provides therapists with a format that offers to restructure psychotherapy in a results-oriented approach. It helps to promote a simplified system to understand the therapeutic process. This straightforward model will be very useful for both new and more experienced psychotherapists who have ever felt lost or disorganized in their treatment. In addition, it integrates different therapeutic models and teaches readers to conduct therapy across a wide range of modalities. -- Laura Gonzalez-Conty, M.D. * Doody's Book Review *
