Will psychotherapy survive to be a vital part of inpatient treatment in the future? Will inpatient units themselves survive, or will they be replaced by partial hospital programs complemented by supervised housing arrangements? Will average length of inpatient stay continue to decrease, or has it reached its lowest possible level? Less Time to Do More: Psychotherapy on the Short-Term Inpatient Unit examines the implications of shorter stays for the practice of inpatient psychotherapy. The contributors describe techniques that inpatient psychotherapists can use to remain therapeutically effective despite increased pressure from managed care companies and the threat of malpractice suits. This book utilizes over 20 years of research on techniques and strategies to bring the reader the most up-to-date methods as well as the traditional models of inpatient treatment. "How can inpatient psychotherapists respond to the realities of modern hospital practice? Each of these chapters describes one facet of how the therapist can adapt his or her goals and techniques to treat seriously ill patients effectively in the limited time available." -- Ellen Leibenluft, M.D., From the Afterword

MEDIA REVIEWS

" "Less Time to Do More" is a telling review of current approaches to inpatient psychiatry; one in which insurers ask us to treat patients as objects to be cleverly and quickly maneuvered into conforming behavior and to overlook the possibility that they may be interesting persons overwhelmed by futile attempts to deal with conflicts beyond their abilities to manage."-- "The New England Journal of Medicine"


"The book has been well-edited so that there is little redundancy across chapters. Both the novice clinician and the experienced hospital psychiatrist will find a good deal of clinical wisdom on the pages of this fine new volume, and it will serve equally well as a text for residents assigned to inpatient rotations and as a reference book for the busy inpatient clinician."-- "American Journal of Psychiatry"


"This is a quality book, useful for psychotherapeutically disciplined trainees as an overview of philosophy and techniques that offer enhanced treatment effectiveness."-- "Doody's Journal"
