The author has meticulously updated every chapter of the previous edition, adding new illustrative case examples and discussing the most recent research findings and concepts in psychodynamic psychiatry. It introduces the basic principles of psychodynamic psychiatry and the four fundamental theoretical frameworks derived from psychoanalytic theory: ego psychology, object relations theory, self psychology, and attachment theory. Drawing on the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience to validate the latest psychodynamic thinking, the author includes neuroanatomical illustrations that highlight the need to integrate psychoanalytic theories of development with brain development and the impact of environment on gene expression. The fourth edition of Psychodynamic Psychiatry in Clinical Practice details the theory of psychodynamic psychotherapy and the adaptation of psychodynamic thinking to specific disorders.

Gabbard, M. Gabbard is well-versed in the research on efficacy, which is important in the era of evidence-based practice. Psychodynamic practice has not only a long history and a vast literature, but in recent years psychodynamic practice has been researched in well-designed studies and there is abundant evidence of its effectiveness for certain conditions and disorders. Gabbard has entirely reorganized the text from the fourth edition. All in all, a wonderful book, and I am now going to look into his other American Psychiatric Association press texts.

Previous editions were cheaper, printed in much larger type and on thicker paper. This is almost impossible to read for anyone over 40 and printed on razor-thin paper. Gibbered and publishers have lost perspective. Excellent, well-researched and helpful.

Structural consistency across chapters, with sections on psychopathology and psychodynamics, differential diagnosis, management of the interview, transference and countertransference, and so forth, which reinforces skills acquisition and makes the text easy to use.
