A proven technique applying brief therapy to difficult and challenging disorders
Brief Therapy with Intimidating Cases is a myth–shattering book that reveals how short–term therapy can be used as a powerful tool for treating clients who present a range of complex psychological disorders including severe depression, delusions and paranoia, anorexia, alcoholism, obsessive–compulsive behavior, and borderline personality disorder.
Fisch and Schlanger have done an admirable job of addressing the difficult. They have done this with detailed description of cases and step–by–step explanations for dealing with the unchangeable briefly.

No other book gives such detailed information for helping people who are caught in hopeless situations. Brief Therapy with Intimidating Cases shows how to succeed with the tough cases even the best therapists usually give up on.
