Description

"Analytic Construction" frames stronger forms of psychotherapy than traditional and even cognitive-behavioral formats. Each patient's treatment is individually tailored to meet the ever changing patterns of relatively consistent clinical needs. "Analytic Construction" frames multiple seemingly incompatible treatments including psychoanalytically-framed psychotherapy, client-centered treatment, cognitive-behavioral therapy and other less structured formats into congruent near-scientific forms of stronger patient gain. After an introduction to the problems facing psychotherapy, the difficulties are described in greater detail before the reader is taken to what will offer an answer, "Analytic Construction"'s base in philosophy and science. The answer, "Analytic Construction", an echo of science structured for patient gain, is outlined before the wealth of possible treatment modalities are described. Clinical cases illustrate the power of the method before concluding with what can be valuable for the clinician and invaluable to the patient. Norman H. Freed is an Adjunct Clinical Faculty, Stanford University, and Associate Editor for "Psychological Reports".
