In this book, Dr. Penny Rawson succeeds in showing short-term psychodynamic psychotherapy to be an authentic and accepted method of therapy. She roots the concept in tradition and also introduces the reader to the relevant contemporary literature. In examining several cases in detail she draws out the key principles involved to present these in a clear and concise manner and demonstrates aspects of the method in practice. This book is both an excellent introduction and in depth exposition so it is highly relevant to the experienced practitioner or student. It will appeal to people both lay and professional who have an interest in an approach to therapy that is condensed but not diluted.

'This book concentrates on short term psychodynamic psychotherapy. It aims to discover and analyse the key principles involved. It also aims to enrich the understanding of an approach to therapy that is already of benefit to many in our community, but that could reach very many others if it were better known and understood.'
- From the Introduction.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Dr. Rawson.. gives an overview of ..various attempts [by practitioners to shorten therapy] and presents her own form of short-term psychotherapy. I would thoroughly recommend a close perusal of her book. If her thesis holds up in practice, many people who would otherwise have been incapacitated personally for long periods of time will be helped much more quickly to take up their personal responsibility for themselves and do so, moreover, at a tiny fraction of the cost.’
- Thomas More Mann OFM Cap., M.A., PhL..

'... it is certainly the most important survey of short-term therapy that exists and would be of immense value for those studying the subject...such a broad and deep study of the whole gamut of the subject.'
- Rev. Louis Marteau, AAPSW
