"This is one of the best books about any kind of psychotherapy that I have read in my forty years as a psychiatric educator; I consider it a "must read" for every trainee in psychiatry, psychology and psychiatric social work, and a very helpful addition to any active clinician's library." -- Jonathan Borus, Psychiatrist in Chief, Brigham & Women's Hospital and Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
