About the Author

After many years of clinical work in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin, Lorna Smith Benjamin moved to the Department of Psychology at the University of Utah to collaborate with graduate students in the research study of psychosocial factors in mental disorder. A past president of the International Society for Psychotherapy Research and an advisor to the DSM-IV work group on personality disorders, she is author of over 50 professional publications. Her SASB model of interpersonal relations has been translated into ten different languages. The associated coding system, questionnaires, and software are widely used in efforts to enhance scientific understanding of the practice of psychotherapy. Her dream is to use the concepts described in this book to guide development of a high-quality, low-cost research and training center that emphasizes efficacy in psychosocial treatment of major mental disorders.


"Impressive... unequalled in terms of its scientific rigor, clinical penetration, comprehensiveness... This book will have a powerful impact on psychiatric diagnosis and treatment in the coming years... a superb accomplishment." - Hans H. Strupp PhD (on the first edition)
