A unique and accessible guide to contemporary psychodynamic therapy and its applications. Introduced with a foreword by Nancy McWilliams, an author line-up of experienced educators guide the reader through the breadth of psychodynamic concepts in a digestible and engaging way. The key applications of psychodynamic psychotherapy to a range of presentations are explored, including anxiety, depression, problematic narcissism as well as the dynamics of 'borderline' states. Specific chapters cover the dynamics of anger and aggression, and working with people experiencing homelessness. A valuable resource for novice and experienced therapists, presenting a clear, comprehensive review of contemporary psychodynamic theory and clinical practice. Highly relevant for general clinicians, third-sector staff and therapists alike, the authors also examine staff-client dynamics and the development of psychologically-informed services underpinned by reflective practice. Part of the Cambridge Guides to the Psychological Therapies series, offering all the latest scientifically rigorous, and practical information on a range of key, evidence-based psychological interventions for clinicians.
