Therapy that effects change must authentically involve you, the therapist. Engaging, readable, and immediately helpful with clients, INTERPERSONAL PROCESS IN THERAPY: AN INTEGRATIVE MODEL brings together various theories into a cohesive framework that centers on the therapeutic relationship. It shows you practical ways to intervene with your clients, while addressing and alleviating the concerns new therapists often have -- such as worrying about making "mistakes." It also provides clear guidelines for effective (and ineffective) ways to establish a working alliance, address resistance and resolve ruptures in the therapeutic relationship, help clients transition from surface conversation to their key concerns, respond to clients' painful feelings, develop a focus for treatment, and more. Featuring new case examples and updated research, the seventh edition's extensive clinical vignettes and sample therapist-client dialogues will bring you "in the room" with the therapist.
