Présentation de l'éditeur

Based on the work of the research team, this manual offers techniques and strategies for treating patients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) using Transference–Focused Psychotherapy. Unlike other books on the subject, this is not a step–by–step guidebook for treating patients; rather, it provides therapists with an overall strategy for treating BPD patients, and helpful tactics for working with individual patients on a session–by–session basis. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Quatrième de couverture

"This book contains the most readable and understandable description of BPD from a dynamic perspective that I have ever read. It is an eye–opener and must reading for anyone working with this population.

This book goes far beyond any other psychodynamic psychotherapy manual that I′ve read. It not only delves into the relationship and transference, as most do, but gives some straightforward and clear descriptions of very important interventions that are specific to this population.

This book breathes fresh air into psychodynamic psychotherapy. It includes not only a description of the pathology that is understandable even to the non–dynamic therapist, it offers rich descriptions of the specific interventions and their indications that can be effective with the borderline patient." Larry Beutler, Graduate School of Education, University of California

"Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality is an excellent guide to the treatment of these difficult and frequently intractable patients who test the mettle of any psychotherapist who attempts the daunting task of engaging them in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The authors have presented a manual that is practical, lucid, and yet sophisticated." Hans H. Strupp, Department of Psychology, Vanderbilt University

"In this era of demands for greater accountability in documenting the practice and outcomes of psychotherapy, Clarkin, Yeomans, and Kernberg continue to pursue the challenge of making more transparent what often seems elusive in the treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder. They take seriously the obligation to articulate as plainly as possible the theory behind their work and its translation into ′hands–on′ practice." Paul Pilkonis, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

"This book offers us an opportunity to share in [Drs. Clarkin, Yeomans, and Kernberg′s] success. It is a must for anyone who works with borderline patients." Robert Michels, MD, The New York Hospital–Cornell Medical Center

"This admirable guide′s many verbatim examples are organized into an expansion of the well–known and impressively effective Kernberg–style psychotherapy treatment system for borderline patients. If you treat borderline patients in psychotherapy, you need this guide for its high–power focus on the special problems of these patients." Lester Luborsky, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania

Working with a severely reduced emotional palette, the borderline personality inhabits a stark world populated by comic book heroes and villains, victims and destroyers, saints and serpents, endlessly vying for dominance. As any psychotherapist who treats borderline patients knows, entering the fray in an effort to help establish harmony among the warring factions is an undertaking fraught with danger. Even the canniest therapist is at risk of being drawn into the seductive whirlwind of shifting roles and power struggles, only to become another unwitting agent of chaos. What is needed, then, is an approach that provides sufficient clinical structure to contain the destructive forces that can undermine the therapeutic process while remaining flexible enough to allow the therapist the freedom to safely interact with and respond constructively to the roles thrust upon him or her by the patient. This groundbreaking book describes such an approach transference focused psychotherapy (TFP).

TFP is a sophisticated new variant of psychodynamic interventions centering on the analysis of the transference. Its main goal is to bring a patient′s unconscious conflicts to the surface so that they can be actively worked through by the client and therapist within a rigorous clinical framework.

An elegantly humane yet clinically rigorous approach to interventions with one of the most challenging categories of personality disorders, Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality is an important professional resource for all mental health professionals.

This book provide an approach of the treatment of patients with borderline personality disorder. As always with the authors from the object relation theory this work explains not only the theory, but also displays a lot of examples and discussions about treatments and patients. A book, absolutly indispensable, in the field of the treatment of these patients.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 extremely useful training manual 3 avril 1999
Par Susanne Weinhöppel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is a very useful manual that helps you to install the unevitable treating contract with bordeline patients which is a necessary frame. The manual provides you with clear instructions on how to set priorities when it comes to troubles (acting-out). And it helps you to develop the feeling when to interprete in terms of transference. Analysts who are used to wait very long until they react actively may be irritated; but no psychotherapist involved in the toil's work with severe borderline conditions can afford to ignore this modern, lively and considerate point of application. This work is the psychoanalytic counterpart, and challenge to Marsha Linehan's famous behavioristic studies on treating the self-destructive and acting-out borderline patient.

Par Lobewiper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is the product of years of clinical experience and training of psychiatrists/psychologists in the use of an object-relations psychoanalytic psychotherapy for treatment of patients with underlying borderline personality organization. Borderline in this sense means patients with primitive defense mechanisms (e.g., splitting, projective identification), identity diffusion, and other features, and such organization is seen in several personality disorders in addition to "borderline personality." Examples include narcissistic disorder and antisocial personality. The book presents a very clear picture of the value of ORT (object relations theory) in clinical practice, with many case examples and detailed explanations of their psychological significance for the individual patient. Particular attention is given to the importance of maintaining "technical neutrality" (i. e., functioning as an "observing ego" and not siding with a particular component of a patient's intrapsychic conflict.) In addition, emphasis is placed on the resolution of primitive defenses via interpretation. The authors have conducted extensive research on the training of therapists, and recognize that detailed supervision and discussion of case material with trainees is of utmost significance. Perhaps for this reason, their book is filled with insights of great potential value to practicing therapists. (I have never seen such a clinically useful book.) The treatment approach the authors recommend is time consuming (2 sessions per week) and can take several years (with severe cases). However, it offers serious promise that very significant change is possible with borderline patients. This book goes well beyond an account of ORT--it is a major contribution to those interested in the psychoanalytic psychotherapy of patients with underlying borderline personality organization.

Par T. Simonson - Publié sur Amazon.com

I loved and hated this book. Starts out great in its attempt to provide a description of an object relations approach to treating Borderline Personality. When steps are re-traced to dig deeper, I felt the book began to fall apart in the sense of being disorganized and redundant. Had to force myself to finish something that began very well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for beginners, but on the cutting edge... 22 mai 2005
Par D. Beech MD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Clarkin, et. al. have crafted a comprehensive but very readable volume that manages to be at the same time thorough and succinct. This group of clinician-researchers and their program continue to set the pace in the realm of psychodynamic psychotherapy for borderline conditions. Their method, termed "transference focused psychotherapy (TFP)", should not be mistaken for just another entry in a long line of manualized, mostly cognitive-behaviorally based psychotherapies currently in vogue. Built upon foundations laid for decades by co-author Otto Kernberg, this is a further-refined, yet evidence-based and intensive form of psychodynamic psychotherapy. The volume is geared specifically toward the practicalities involved in working with such patients. In reading this book, the experience and wisdom of its authors come through in nearly every page, as the approach is very structured and methodical and includes the troubleshooting strategies that could only be honed through repeated experiences with these interesting and challenging patients. The frankness and richness of the clinical examples are keenly illustrative, and will have every therapist empathically nodding their heads as they read how others have handled commonly-encountered dilemmas in their own offices. What is especially helpful is the description of a case in all of its phases. Seeing the future and feeling hope can sometimes be difficult when the therapist gets immersed in the deep hopelessness of some of their patients... the complete case description provides a set of guideposts, benchmarking every phase of the therapeutic process.

It should be noted that familiarity with basic psychodynamic principles, as well as a working knowledge of object relations theory are prerequisites for making the most of this contemporary work. This contribution lends order to what is often a chaotic endeavor, and arms the psychodynamic therapist with very specific, practical, problem-oriented direction. I recommend it highly to every clinician who works in intensive psychotherapy with patients with borderline conditions.
