Summary: In his foreword Dr. Ivan Boszormenyi-Nagy writes ''...the rich illustrative/clinical materials of this book provide a very useful contribution to the literature. It is a helpful reading even for the reader who is familiar with the basic texts of the approach...[Dr. Goldenthal] has been able to grasp and distinguish the ethical dimension of relationship as a key therapeutic factor. The illustrations from his practice will help the reader to see how many contextual p ...show morerinciples may be applied in working with families in general and with children in particular.'' This unique and powerful integrative approach to the treatment of individuals, couples, and families brings together individual psychodynamic thinking and family systems formulations and concepts. This book will help clinicians ask appropriate questions about fairness in family relationships. Vignettes illustrating clinical interventions are included. The flavor and richness of the complex and innovative approach developed by Boszormenyi-Nagy and his colleagues is ably captured by the author.
Goldenthal, Peter :
Peter Goldenthal, PhD, has conducted numerous professional training workshops, seminars, and continuing education programs focused on contextual treatment with couples, children, and families under the auspices of the American Psychological Association, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and other professional groups. With over 14 years of experience as a family therapist, he is active in both the training and supervision of family therapists and serves as an approved supervisor for the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. Dr. Goldenthal received his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Connecticut, interned at Worcester Youth Guidance Center, and was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in psychology at Harvard Medical School. He has also held academic appointments at Bryn Mawr College, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Delaware. Dr. Goldenthal has earned Diplomates in both Clinical Psychology and Family Psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP). He is licensed as a psychologist in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. In addition to maintaining private practices in both King of Prussia, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware, he currently serves as Director of the Outpatient Unit and Family Study Center of The Terry Children's Psychiatric Center in New Castle, Delaware.
"This practical guide to a complex and sophisticated therapeutic method is clear, straightforward, and not oversimplified. The author, an experienced psychologist and family therapist, understands and appreciates the depth dimensions of contextual therapy, and has been able to explicate and elaborate the major procedural steps of assessment, treatment, and termination. Several clinical vignettes vividly demonstrate how the therapist intervenes - the 'how to do it' of contextual therapy, especially with families of young children and adolescents."
