Cognitive and Psychodynamic Perspectives
Author: Zindel V. Segal,Sidney Jules Blatt
Publisher: Guilford Press
Does understanding a client's view of self increase a clinician's ability to treat emotional disorder? How can practitioners agree on the essentials of self-representation if various clinical theories implicate different aspects of the self in accounting for psychological distress? These questions form the basis for this unique examination of "the self' in the development and treatment of a number of emotional disorders. What is most exceptional about this volume is that it explores these issues from cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic approaches, each of which has articulated treatment methods that incorporate a focus on self-based processes. The result is a rare forum in which leading clinicians and theorists from both orientations address a single set of specific topics. The book opens with two chapters that review theories of the self construct in both social cognition and psychoanalysis. The focus then shifts to the specific diagnostic categories of anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and borderline personality disorder. For each clinical disorder, separate chapters present the cognitive and psychodynamic perspectives. Then each set of authors provide commentary on the complementary chapter. Allowing for an interaction among cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic authors rarely found in other works, this format engenders comprehensive coverage of each specific disorder, as well as a uniquely informative synthesis of the insights of each approach. The editors' concluding chapter delineates the ways in which the self provides a vantage point for understanding emotional disorder. THE SELF IN EMOTIONAL DISTRESS will interest all professionals of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic orientations. Given its integrative focus, it will also be valuable to those involved with the psychotherapy integration movement, and therapists who describe themselves as eclectic. In addition, the volume serves as a text for upper-level courses in psychotherapy, psychopathology, abnormal psychology, and psychotherapy integration.

The Human Face of Emotional Distress
Publisher: Allyn & Bacon
This casebook offers fifteen lively cases that illustrate a wide range of specific DSM-IV diagnoses covered in the abnormal psychology course. These cases integrate issues of racial and gender diversity and provide insight into the lives of people suffering from a variety of psychological disorders, highlighting how psychological distress is experienced and treated in real life. Each case follows a similar pattern to aid reader comprehension. An Introduction describes the problems in the person's life, or the catalyst bringing him or her into therapy. A Psychosocial History offers childhood and other relevant background data to provide a context for the disorder. The Conceptualization section offers the rationale for the diagnosis and the Treatment section then outlines the appropriate psychotherapy as well as any other treatments such as medication or group therapy. The Discussion section highlights interesting aspects of the case, presents relevant research, and examines various theoretical perspectives on treatment. Finally, the Prognosis section covers reasonable expectations of what the future might hold for this person. Critical Thinking Questions are posed at the end of each chapter. Gender and cultural diversity are highlighted among both clients and psychotherapists with important cultural issues woven throughout the cases. The cases themselves feature people from a variety of backgrounds and heritages, the impact of sociocultural factors on the experience or prevalence of a disorder is often discussed, as well as how treatment is affected when the client and therapist come from different ethnic backgrounds. This casebook also features diverse theoretical orientations that drive treatment. Treatment outcomes are diverse and realistic and span from short to long-term. Most are designed as ideal interventions, but some are influenced by economic concerns and changing models of available services. For anyone interested in abnormal psychology.
