Annotation

From the author of the landmark "Psychoanalytic Diagnosis, " this bestselling title takes clinicians step-by-step through developing an understanding of each client's unique psychology and using this information to guide and inform treatment decisions.

Publisher Description

This invaluable book shows that while seasoned practitioners rely upon established diagnostic categories for record-keeping, their actual clinical concepts and practices reflect more inferential, subjective, and intuitive processes. From the author of the landmark text Psychoanalytic Diagnosis, the volume takes clinicians step-by-step through developing a dynamic case formulation and using this information to guide and inform treatment decisions. Synthesizing extensive clinical literature, diverse psychoanalytic viewpoints, and empirical research in psychology and psychiatry, McWilliams brings assessment to life and illuminates the entire psychotherapeutic process.

Review

"Books by Nancy McWilliams used in unison make the best psychodynamic resources I have yet encountered in more than 60 years in the field."--Robert C. Lane, PhD, Department of Psychology, Nova Southeastern University

"This beautifully written, uniquely accessible guide to the psychoanalytic understanding of clinical cases will be of immense value to students and practitioners of all theoretical persuasions. I predict it will be among the most important and widely used books in this field for years to come." --George E. Atwood, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey

"Psychoanalytic Case Formulation is a worthy successor to Psychoanalytic Diagnosis. Nancy McWilliams has a pellucid writing style that brings complex concepts within the easy grasp of the reader. She has produced a book that is intelligently psychoanalytic without being restricted to any single vision of psychoanalysis. The critical concepts are developed well and the issues important to assessment--a concept that goes well beyond diagnosis--are explicated clearly and helpfully. This is a rare book that can serve as a text for beginning students and still has much to offer to accomplished professionals." --George Stricker, PhD, The Derner Institute, Adelphi University, Garden City, NY
