The Brief Psychoanalytic Therapy Treatment Manual is presented. This summarizes the rationale and principles of treatment—in part, distilling and organizing themes that had been introduced in Chapter 1—and then devotes attention to characterizing a particular style of attending to and interpreting the transference. In a final section of the chapter, the very beginning of the assessment consultation from Chapter 3 is revisited, in order to review how the therapeutic orientation and techniques described in the Manual can be identified in clinical material. In a manner that will be developed in subsequent chapters, therefore, principles are exemplified in clinical practice.
