Handbook of Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy pdf free download. In recent years much has been written on the topic of brief psychotherapy (Budman & Gurman, 1988). Clinicians of varying orientations as well as therapy researchers have been shifting toward the brief therapy model as the standard, and long-term therapy is becoming the exception. Many observers (such as Koss & Butcher, 1986) note that brief psychotherapy can now be
considered the treatment of choice for most patients seeking help. A number of factors explain this trend toward briefer therapies (Garfield & Bergin, 1986; Koss & Butcher, 1986). These include (1) the development of crisis-oriented therapies arising out of the community mental health movement; (2) the advent of the cognitive and behavioral treatments,
which were originally defined as brief treatments; (3) the focus on brief therapy in research studies because of the practical difficulties of studying long-term treatments; (4) the increasing awareness among clinicians that most patients desire a treatment of short duration; and (5) the pressures from insurance companies to lower costs.
