Economic pressures have created an emphasis on short-term modalities rather than traditional psychodynamic, long-term therapies, and advances in psychopharmacology and modern psychotherapeutic techniques have also altered the ways in which psychotherapy is practiced.

Part I, on theoretical perspectives, discusses the value system of the psychotherapist, integration of therapies, the long-term outlook for short-term therapies, and presents an overview of short-term dynamic psychotherapies.

Part III examines trends in therapy for specific populations with contributions on contemporary child psychotherapy, the current practice of family therapy, and approaches for borderline women. Part IV, on contemporary treatment issues, discusses such topics as working with heterosexuals who deny the risk of AIDS, treating incest victims for shame, and utilizing group psychotherapy for eating disorders.
