The editors divided the book into three parts, making it easy for the reader to follow. These parts focus first on strengthening the patient, second on the mechanism of therapeutic change, and third on sustaining the therapeutic approach. Case studies are woven into various chapters so that the reader can gain an understanding of how this approach has been effectively utilized with various patients. Each chapter ends with a concise summary. In chapter 12, the results of a study that explored the subjective experience of being medicated are presented. Despite the weaknesses in the study (such as a small sample), findings are thought provoking and warrant further investigation.
