Reaching through Resistance by Allan Abbass, MD.
I'm pleased to announce that my book, Reaching through Resistance: Advanced Psychotherapy Techniques, will be coming out next month. Pre-publication reviews have been glowing: “must-read,” “profound and nuanced,” “rich, empirically robust, and technically clear,” and “superb.”
Forming an emotionally engaged treatment alliance with treatment-resistant patients is one of the toughest challenges we face as therapists. Reaching through Resistance teaches you how to reach through to the person beneath long held treatment-defeating behaviors to help your client become the person he or she was meant to be.
The book starts shipping in mid-May, but if you pre-order by April 13, you'll get 32% off, and you'll receive it before Amazon can ship it.
Dr. David Malan, author of Individual Psychotherapy and the Science of Psychodynamics, wrote about Reaching through Resistance: “Numerous clinical vignettes show how to put theory into practice, leading to enduring change . . . If you want to know how to help clients change, this book is essential reading.”
Dr. Stan Messer, Dean and Distinguished Professor at Rutgers University, wrote: “Abbass demonstrates how one can reach behind the resistances of even the most repressed and fragile character types and offer them genuine, lasting change . . . a gold mine of clinical insight.”
