Book excerpt: Patricia Coughlin Della Selva's Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy shows therapists how to achieve even the most ambitious therapeutic goals, including character change, in as few as 40 sessions. Not a cookbook, but a systematic guide to intervention, it outlines proven techniques for accessing a patient's ego-functioning, dismantling defenses, intensifying a patient's affective involvement in the treatment, identifying the transference patterns as they arise, and "unlocking the unconscious" with a speed and degree of accuracy previously considered impossible.
