Amazon reviews:

“A very well written book that describes the various aspects of attachment and how it presents in clinical practice. Attachment theory is not universally understood by all clinicians but has the capacity to help explain the importance of early life experiences and how they shape the way we move through the world.”

“As a psychologist in private practice, and interested in attachment theory, I found this book very informative and illuminating. It helps me provide an ‘attachment informed’ therapy to clients suffering from various problems as well as helps me understand dynamics in my own relationships with clients.”

“In my view, all trainees and advanced clinicians wishing to learn IPT or to hone their general psychotherapy skills will stand to benefit considerably from reading and studying this welcome and edifying book. And, although I have been teaching IPT formally and informally to residents as well as to others for several decades, I know that from now on, I’ll personally be using the Casebook of Interpersonal Psychotherapy to enrich my instruction.” — Joel Yager, M.D., American Journal of Psychiatry
“In the meantime, for clinicians working on the front lines in a highly pressured managed-care environment, Markowitz and Weissman have provided a clear set of therapeutic techniques for a wide range of disorders with an easily assimilable theory supported by research and presented in the medical lingua franca of our evidence-based
culture. As they themselves urge at the end of the book, now it’s time for their readers to let them know whether IPT actually makes sense and works for them.” — PsycCRITIQUES
“This book is an important addition to the literature on brief psychotherapy. It will be useful to both the novice and the experienced psychotherapist. It will prod therapists who primarily provide more extensive psychotherapies to consider more actively when a brief therapy such as IPT may allow the patient to achieve meaningful and lasting change. Additionally, the extensive bibliography is an excellent resource for those wishing to learn more about psychotherapy research.” — Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

Review: “This book is in my view essential reading, not only for health professionals but also for psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists. It addresses psychological challenges related to interventions such as for example organ transplants, assisted suicide and chronic illness, by authors at the cutting edge of new developments. The language and psychodynamic concepts used are of the present era with Freud mentioned in context and the work of Bowlby, Mary Ainsworth and Peter Fonagy having a central position.

These poignant and powerful pieces speak volumes about the healing properties of narrative medicine from the perspective of health care professions and patients as well as their families. This is medical humanities at its finest.‘ Barbara Sibbald, Humanities Editor, Canadian Medical Association Journal, and author of The Book of Love: Guidance in Affairs of the Heart

Why another book on IBD you might ask? Well this book has raised the bar in the field of medical information for the general public. The approach taken by Dr. Hillary Steinhart in this book Crohn’s and Colitis, results in a clear discussion of an illness that at times seems confusing and that may even be overwhelming for patients and their families. He has set the standard to which other authors should strive; not only in the area of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but also in all books that intend to educate the public about medical conditions…. This is an excellent overview of IBD that is written in a style that is easy to understand, yet contains enough detail that it could function as an introduction to the subject for medical students and many other health care professionals…. Would I recommend this [book] to my patients? I would do so absolutely and without reservation. Ford Bursey, MD, FRCPC, FACP, Associate Professor Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada

An informative and comprehensive read… The book is written with an uncomplicated, easy to understand style, and with a factual and positive tone…. Many of the questions and answers raised are important to the personal lives of the reader, such as intimacy and social aspects…. The book is written for the lay reader and explains all technical and medical terms carefully…. This informative and optimistic book is a must have for anyone suffering or caring for a person with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis. Georgina Shaman National Association of Crohn’s and Colitis
