Indispensable For Therapists

In the course of extensive experience as a teacher and consultant, Makover has developed an unusually clear system for planning psychotherapeutic treatment and checking to see if it is still on track. In the book he presents his system in a way that will be useful to a varied audience - trainees learning the art and science of therapy, teachers seeking to expand their educational repertoire, and experienced clinicians who want to sharpen their skills at doing time-effective treatment and getting it covered by insurers.

James E. Sabin, M.D.

“This new book from Richard Makover, with its unique format of annotated transcripts of therapy sessions, is a valuable addition to the library of resources available to psychotherapists of all disciplines and will be especially useful in training new therapists.”

“Treatment Planning for Psychotherapists is an important addition to our field. Its outcome-based four-level treatment plan of aim, goals, strategies, and tactics is richly illustrated by many clinical vignettes. It not only helps us plan an effective psychotherapy but also enables us to monitor the therapy and better contend with the inevitable stalemates and impasses of therapy.
Lawrence E. Lifson, M.D.
