Once reserved for use with severely impaired patients, supportive therapy has come to be recognized as the treatment of choice for many patients, and supportive techniques underlie many other psychotherapies. As a result, in the 25 years since the first edition of Clinical Manual of Supportive Psychotherapy was published, the academic literature covering both specific populations and technical issues has mushroomed. The authors of this revised volume-practicing mental health clinicians-have undertaken a thorough review of the available literature to present updated and new chapters, case vignettes, tables, and resources that reflect best practices. In these pages, readers will find an introduction to the principles and techniques of supportive psychotherapy, as well a description of its application to specific mental disorders, including new chapters on anxiety and co-occurring disorders. This updated and greatly expanded edition also features supportive therapy with medically ill and older patients, as well as discussion of practicing in correctional and detention centers and the special needs of therapists in public institutions, community and family involvement, and medication adherence and therapy interactions. A discussion of ethics, augmented with guidance on cultural and religious sensitivity, completes the manual.
