Specialized Techniques in Individual Psychotherapy: Edited by Toksoz B. Karasu, M.D. and Leopold Bellak, M.D. New York: Brunner/Mazel, 1980. 504 pp.

Review by:
Alex H. Kaplan

A number of good books dealing with the general subject of psychoanalytically oriented short- and long-term individual psychotherapy have already been published. However, none of them cover the treatment of such a wide range of problems or of the specialized techniques involved in individual psychotherapy as this volume does. Encyclopedic in its range, it covers not only an overview of all psychotherapies and the general principles of psychotherapy, but the application of individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy alone or in combination with other techniques to a wide range of psychiatric conditions.

The book, of great value for the young psychiatric resident and psychiatrist in clinical practice, will also be most helpful to the psychoanalyst and psychiatrist with more clinical experience. The underlying principle throughout this book is the adherence to the psychoanalytic theory of personality and psychopathology as the basis for individual psychotherapy.
