Learning Supportive Psychotherapy, second edition (first published in 2004 as Introduction to Supportive Psychotherapy and revised in 2012) is written for beginning therapists who need to learn the fundamentals of psychotherapy and in particular need to learn how to talk with psychotherapy patients. The book provides to the beginning resident clear guidelines for the conduct and progression of supportive psychotherapy in four major areas: forming and maintaining a positive therapeutic alliance, understanding and formulating patients' problems, setting realistic treatment goals, and knowing what to say to patients (technique). Included are a discussion of crisis intervention and the applicability of supportive psychotherapy to special populations, including patients with chronic mental illness, substance use disorders, and co-occurring conditions. The book also includes a discussion of how to determine whether a psychiatry resident has achieved competence in supportive psychotherapy and concludes with a presentation of the evidence for the efficacy of supportive psychotherapy, including a number of outcome trials
