This book provides an overview of the basic principles in relational therapy, which, in combination with the latest research about the significance of the therapeutic relationship, makes it possible to present practical therapeutic tools and techniques to help the therapist make optimal use of the interaction between patient and therapist.

It presents models and concepts in relational psychotherapy that may contribute to the patient’s development of relational and emotional competence, and to more authentic and meaningful ways of living with oneself and others. The book specially emphasizes the significance of the mutually constructed emotional interplay as the material for key experiences in the development of the patient – and therapist.

The focus is on the usefulness of relational principles and research findings in psychotherapies of shorter duration, in primary care, psychiatric clinics, and private practice.

Rich in clinical examples, Principles and Practices of Relational Psychotherapy is an extremely useful resource for psychotherapists and clinical psychologists in training and practice.

Reviews and Endorsements

"Holmqvist achieves the dual feat of capturing the complexity of an influential tradition in contemporary psychotherapy and opening new pathways to expand and improve its clinical impact. As an integration of rich theoretical constructs, illustrative cases, practical guidelines, and up-to-date empirical findings, this is a fascinating book!" - Louis G. Castonguay, Ph.D., Liberal Arts Professor of Psychology, Penn State University

"Holmqvist takes us on a comprehensive journey that thoughtfully considers critical questions and concerns of relational psychotherapies. He captures the complex and integrative spirit of the relational revolution -in addressing such subjects as affectivity, attachment, mentalization, metacommunication, and intersubjectivity (plus the various paradoxes and pressures posed). His presentation is rich with insights and illustrations that reflect years of experience in the realms of theory, research, and practice. Professionals at all levels of training will appreciate his exceptional ability to turn the conceptual into the practical" - J. Christopher Muran, PhD, Full Professor, Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology, Adelphi University; Principal Investigator, Psychotherapy Research Program, Mount Sinai Beth Israel
