Abstract: This handbook sets out to provide a comprehensive account of current knowledge on empirically grounded time-limited approaches to psychotherapy. The book contains 25 chapters divided into five sections. The first includes a series of essays on key topics such as theoretical integration, recent innovative approaches to process research, and the implications of mental health policy for brief therapy. The second section covers a number of technical issues such as managing engagement problems, using time limited contracts to promote change, setting tasks and single session therapy. The third, fourth and fifth sections contain review chapters on individual, family and group approaches to brief therapy. Within these chapters, psychodynamic, systems and cognitive-behavioural perspectives are well represented along with a number on interesting integrative approaches.
