Today, under pressure from managed care companies as well as from patients who are demanding briefer and more focused treatments, therapists are creatively combining cognitive and psychodynamic approaches and obtaining unprecedented therapeutic results.

With concrete examples he shows how to implement all of the basic cognitive techniques.
