Boot Camp Therapy Brief Action Oriented Clinical Approaches to Anxiety Anger Depression Excerpt :

Incorporating brief therapy with an innovative “boot camp” approach to help clients overcome three of the most prevalent issues in therapy. In some cases long-term therapy that seeks to assess a client’s history and gain insight over the course of many sessions isn’t always possible. Immediate behavior change and concrete steps to fix the problem at hand are sometimes more practical and desirable. Grounded in a results-oriented brief therapy model, this user-friendly guide presents the author’s “boot camp” approach—focusing on a client’s immediate behavior, helping them to do things differently, take action, concentrate on process, and use targeted goals and homework to jump-start and motivate them into taking risks and breaking patterns. Following this approach, Taibbi walks readers through session-by-session treatment “maps” for achieving solutions to three of the most common issues in therapy.

Process Focused Therapy Excerpt :

Process-Focused Therapy weaves together three key perspectives to help clinicians create a more effective therapeutic session: client problems as faulty process, the goal of therapy as changing such faulty process within the session and the art of shaping the session process for each client. Each practical chapter enables professionals to focus on bridging the gap between the client’s language (content) and the clinician’s language (process) and on the need to assess and shift this focus quickly within each session to create a new and productive therapeutic experience. The book starts with the concept of "how you do anything is how you do everything" and details tools that clinicians can use to identify a client’s "stuckpoints," (i.e. the faulty process that keeps clients from effectively solving their life problems). The reader is then provided with treatment maps for each of the most commonly presented stuckpoints, and guidance on how to present clients with a preliminary treatment plan. Next, the author explains techniques for building rapport, changing the emotional climate, staying in lockstep, and repairing breaks in the process and shows, through transcribed sessions, how to craft sessions to maximize their emotional and therapeutic impact. Finally, clinicians will learn how to apply these concepts and techniques to their established clinical model. With rich vignettes included throughout and end-of-chapter questions to invite the reader to reflect on their own practice and consolidate their knowledge of therapeutic processes, Process-Focused Therapy will be a valuable guide for both beginning and experienced therapists.

The Art of the First Session Making Psychotherapy Count From the Start Excerpt :

Making Psychotherapy Count from the Start The average client today only comes to therapy five to eight times, and many only come once, so it is increasingly important, therefore, for therapists to achieve first-session success. Therapeutic skills and sales and marketing savvy are equally important to this task. In the first sixty minutes, clinicians must build trust, communicate what they have to offer, and ensure that the client feels different when they walk out than they did walking in. Short, practical, and applicable to all therapeutic modalities, this book walks readers through all the first-session essentials, including preparation for the first session, action-steps for each stage of the session, techniques for changing the emotional climate, and “closing the deal,” to make sure that clients come back for more. Packed with case examples, vignettes, tools, and techniques, The Art of the First Session prepares clinicians with critical skills to cut through performance anxiety, feel and convey confidence with clients, and hit the ground running in therapy with new clients.

Choice Theory Excerpt :

Dr. William Glasser offers a new psychology that, if practiced, could reverse our widespread inability to get along with one another, an inability that is the source of almost all unhappiness. For progress in human relationships, he explains that we must give up the punishing, relationship–destroying external control psychology. For example, if you are in an unhappy relationship right now, he proposes that one or both of you could be using external control psychology on the other. He goes further. And suggests that misery is always related to a current unsatisfying relationship. Contrary to what you may believe, your troubles are always now, never in the past. No one can change what happened yesterday.

Ending Discrimination Against People with Mental and Substance Use Disorders Excerpt :

Estimates indicate that as many as 1 in 4 Americans will experience a mental health problem or will misuse alcohol or drugs in their lifetimes. These disorders are among the most highly stigmatized health conditions in the United States, and they remain barriers to full participation in society in areas as basic as education, housing, and employment. Improving the lives of people with mental health and substance abuse disorders has been a priority in the United States for more than 50 years. The Community Mental Health Act of 1963 is considered a major turning point in America's efforts to improve behavioral healthcare. It ushered in an era of optimism and hope and laid the groundwork for the consumer movement and new models of recovery. The consumer movement gave voice to people with mental and substance use disorders and brought their perspectives and experience into national discussions about mental health. However over the same 50-year period, positive change in American public attitudes and beliefs about mental and substance use disorders has lagged behind these advances. Stigma is a complex social phenomenon based on a relationship between an attribute and a stereotype that assigns undesirable labels, qualities, and behaviors to a person with that attribute. Labeled individuals are then socially devalued, which leads to inequality and discrimination. This report contributes to national efforts to understand and change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that can lead to stigma and discrimination. Changing stigma in a lasting way will require coordinated efforts, which are based on the best possible evidence, supported at the national level with multiyear funding, and planned and implemented by an effective coalition of representative stakeholders. Ending Discrimination Against People with Mental and Substance Use Disorders: The Evidence for Stigma Change explores stigma and discrimination faced by individuals with mental or substance use disorders and recommends
