Brief case changing intimidating therapy unchangeable Greek men sex dating
Fisch and Schlanger provide interesting and edifying case examples from their practice that illustrate their work with such problems as severe depression, delusion and paranoia, anorexia, alcoholism, obsessive-compulsive behavior, and self-mutilation.
The extended case histories are easy to digest and the relatively light didactic content make for breezy reading. This is the second book that I have read coauthored by Richard Fisch, he also cowrote "Tactic of Change." I enjoyed the authors perspective of looking at the clients attempts to solve the problem as a focal point of change.The book is well-written and is a good introduction regarding the MRI institute and how to conduct brief complain-based therapy.That said, it down-plays certain problems to where it ALMOST feels ridiculous...The clients were stuck in their solutions to the problems.In these case studies, "the cure was indeed the disease." You can see Fisch's influences - Milton Erickson, Paul Watzlawick and John Weakland.
