9780127444703: Succeeding with Difficult Clients: Applications of Cognitive Appraisal Therapy (Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional)

I know that I am doing therapy correctly and well, so why aren't some of my clients changing? " "Why do I feel anxious when I think about my next session with that difficult client? " When psychotherapy stalls, it's time to try new ideas. The authors' experience with difficult clients - uncooperative, hostile, uncommitted to change - gave them a new perspective on working with therapeutic impasses. Papers describing Cognitive Appraisal Therapy have appeared in many books and journals, and now for the first time these ideas are compiled into a single volume. Heavily influenced by the psychotherapy integration movement and in a radical departure from conventional cognitive-behavior therapy, they see motivation in terms of affect and attachment rather than cognitive schemas, and resistance and setbacks as the result of emotional setpoints. Practitioners from all corners of the psychotherapy landscape will be able to integrate Cognitive Appraisal Therapy into their therapeutic approaches to help them work successfully and confidently with difficult clients as individuals, as couples and in groups. Key Features* Novel therapeutic strategies and formulations to use when all else is failing* Provocative conceptualizations of self, personality and psychopathology* A fresh approach to treating personality-related disorders* Numerous case illustrations, and excerpts from actual psychotherapy sessions and supervision sessions* Straightforward, common sense writing free of jargon and psychobabble

Review:

"Wessler, Hankin, and Stern are to be commended for their efforts in addressing the difficult topic of working with difficult clients... In sum, Succeeding with Difficult Clients provides a clear overview of the cognitive, affective, and interpersonal components of CAT designed as a guideline for treatment of personality-disoriented adults."
-CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY

"The book is easy to read, comprehensible, and very useful in application... This book was very helpful in working with some of my own difficult clients who I found struck in their process of change and a few tips from the book allowed me to adjust my exploration questions, helping to lower resistance and causing the change."
