Seminars in the Psychotherapies
Jane Naismith and Sandra Grant
Part of the College Seminars Series.
Seminars in the Psychotherapies presents an overview of
the major established psychotherapies for which there is a growing
evidence base and provides background knowledge for psychiatrists
who are developing their therapeutic skills. Dynamic psychotherapy,
cognitive–behavioural psychotherapy and systemic therapy − the
three main modalities required for trainees in general psychiatry
and for psychiatrists training in psychotherapy − are emphasised.
As well as exploring the differences between therapies, there is
discussion of the common ground. Clinical examples are used
throughout to highlight how theory can be applied to practice and
to illustrate how different theoretical concepts are linked. Group
psychotherapy, family therapy, therapy with children and
adolescents, and psychotherapy research are also discussed.
Aimed primarily at trainees, Seminars in the
Psychotherapies is also relevant for psychotherapists from
different professional backgrounds and for psychiatrists in other
specialties who wish to update themselves on psychotherapy.
