This volume details the direct and successful application of time-limited clinical interventions to problems commonly encountered in psychotherapy. Using a minimum of theory, eminent practitioners analyze case studies to offer action-oriented advice on the treatment of such issues as bereavement, depression, and panic disorder in children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. The rational, problem-solving approaches demonstrated help build valuable skills and illustrate how to balance a client's ability to change with the demands and limits of time.
