Entre deux Eaux

Entre deux Eaux literally means: in between two streams of water. Andrew’s poetry hails from 2001 to 2006, and his prose is from 1996 to 2009.

"Through Problem-Solving Therapy: A Treatment Manual, Nezu and colleagues offer an excellent manual that has the potential to help a wide range of individuals cope with lifeís challenges. This book is an invaluable addition to any practicing psychologistís bookshelf." – PsycCRITIQUES

Problem-solving therapy (PST) has been increasingly used to treat a variety of health and mental health problems due to its flexibility and proven effectiveness. This text, written by the co-developers of PST, is a comprehensive and detailed manual of how to apply PST to a wide variety of populations and situations. It reflects the significant conceptual and clinical revisions that supersede earlier versions of PST, and is based on the authors' clinical and research experience, the treatment outcome literature, and advances in related areas of psychology and neuroscience research.

The book offers specific treatment guidelines, sample client-therapist dialogues, clinical exercises and activities, homework assignments, client handouts, clinical case examples, and worksheets. These resources are based on a "stepped-care" model of PST that takes into account the nature of a client's problems, the intensity of these problems, the setting and treatment structure, and treatment goals. The manual offers clients four major "toolkits," which include a multitasking guide to overcoming "cognitive overload" when under stress, a guide to overcoming problems related to emotional dysregulation, a guide to overcoming barriers to effective problem-solving through use of healthy thinking and positive imagery, and a guide to fostering effective problem-solving by designing and employing a rational plan. Digital accompaniments include patient handouts, worksheets, and toolkits. Intended for use by a wide variety of mental health professionals in multiple settings, the manual can also serve as a text for both undergraduate and applied graduate courses.

Key Features:

  • Describes an increasingly popular psychotherapeutic intervention that works for multiple client populations and can be combined with other treatment modalities
  • Authored by the co-developers of PST
  • Provides the most up-to-date, detailed guidelines to PST
  • Presents treatment guidelines, case examples, and numerous clinical aids
