How do our patients come to be the way they are?

What forces shape their conscious and unconscious thoughts
and feelings?

How can we use this information to best help

Constructing psychodynamic formulations is one of the best ways
for mental health professionals to answer questions like these. It
can help clinicians in all mental health setting understand their
patients, set treatment goals, choose therapeutic strategies,
construct meaningful interventions and conduct treatment.

Despite the centrality of psychodynamic formulation to our work
with patients, few students are taught how to construct them
in a clear systematic way. This book offers students and
practitioners from all fields of mental health a clear, practical,
operationalized method for constructing psychodynamic formulations,
with an emphasis on the following steps:

DESCRIBING problems and patterns

REVIEWING the developmental history

LINKING problems and patterns to history using organizing ideas
about development.

The unique, up-to-date perspective of this book integrates
psychodynamic theories with ideas about the role of genetics,
trauma, and early cognitive and emotional difficulties on
development to help clinicians develop effective formulations.

Psychodynamic Formulation is written in the same clear,
concise style of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: A Clinical
Manual (Wiley 2011). It is reader friendly, full of
useful examples, eminently practical, suitable for either classroom
or individual use, and applicable for all mental health
professionals. It can stand alone or be used as a companion volume
to the Clinical Manual.
