I have written a chapter for a book on psychotherapy, to illustrate how EDT can be adapted for use with adolescents in general, and, specifically, underachieving gifted adolescents:
‘Using Intensive Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy to Treat an Underachieving Gifted Adolescent’, in ‘The Theory and Practice of Experiential Dynamic Therapy’, edited by Ferruccio Osimo and Mark Stein. Published by Karnac in July 2012.
"I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It enables the reader to observe closely the therapeutic process, highlighting the healing ingredients across different therapeutic styles. One of the book's strengths is in displaying plenty of variations on the theme of Experiential Dynamic Therapy (EDT) therapeutic techniques, always highlighting the real, personal aspects of the therapeutic relationship. This is consistent with research findings that emotional experiencing, therapeutic alliance, and motivation lie at the core of successful outcome. Annotations to the clinical material are accurate and well to the point, giving the reader a direct view and understanding of the change process." Leigh McCullough, PhD, Associate Clinical Professor, Harvard Medical School
"This original and thoughtful book is distinctive in the way it emphasises that EDT is an over-arching term, embracing a number of therapeutic approaches. All of them, however, have a common conceptual core, which is outlined very clearly at the beginning. Ferruccio Osimo and Mark Stein, with a group of talented therapist colleagues (many working in the British NHS), have demonstrated how effective EDT can be with a range of patients in many settings. Impressively inclusive of a number of different techniques, each therapist gives a comprehensive, clear account of the methods that they are using, illustrating them with verbatim vignettes of actual therapies, all of which are touching stories in themselves. Additionally, the therapists explain as each therapy unfolds, why they made the interventions that they did, and do so in a refreshingly honest way that not only brings the whole process to life, but adds an important quality to the book as a whole."
