Interpersonal Reconstructive Therapy - Lorna Smith Benjamin

Promoting Change in Nonresponders


Drawing on and extending the concepts presented in her earlier Interpersonal Diagnosis and Treatment of Personality Disorders, leading scientist-practitioner Lorna Smith Benjamin now presents a powerful, evidence-based therapeutic model that is applicable to a broad cross-section of the "nonresponder" population. At the heart of interpersonal reconstructive therapy (IRT) is a clearly explained method of case conceptualization that links presenting problems to longstanding patterns in interpersonal relationships; targets the motivational factors that maintain current difficulties; helps therapist and client collaborate to stay focused on key therapeutic goals; and facilitates the learning of new patterns through a variety of carefully planned interventions. Solidly grounded in theory and research, the volume is illustrated with rich clinical examples that bring core principles to life.
