Co-creating Change by Jon Frederickson

co-creating-change-smallCo-Creating Change provides the therapist clear steps, strategies and interventions to overcome the numerous obstacles that prevent the co-creation of a relationship for change. Many books describe a theory but not how to put it into practice. They reveal what the patient said, but not how the therapist intervened. Yet to succeed, therapists must know what to do. And to know what to do, they must know how to assess the patient moment-by-moment in the session. Each chapter presents a specific ingredient for co-creating change, shows how to assess it, and how to intervene. Co-Creating Change teaches a theory of assessment and how to put it into practice. Through numerous clinical vignettes the therapist learns how to be optimally responsive to the patient’s needs moment-by-moment. It shows how to intervene with literally hundreds of defenses.

psychodynamic-psychotherapyPsychodynamic Psychotherapy: Learning to Listen from Multiple Perspectives by Jon Frederickson shows how to listen and intervene from four perspectives: reflection, conflict, defense analysis, and transference analysis.  Each perspective has a brief theoretical chapter that shows how to listen and intervene followed by sample session transcripts which are presented in two ways.  First, the transcript is presented with questions.  Second, the transcript is presented with answers to the questions and sample interventions showing how to intervene from that perspective.  In the final chapter a single transcript is analyzed from three perspectives, showing how different approaches yield different interpretations based on different rules for timing.  If you want to intervene, this is the book to get.  Although not based on ISTDP, the learning skills in this book will help anyone learning how to do ISTDP.
