This book contains a selection of interesting and informative articles authored by orthodox rabbis and psychotherapists that are highly relevant and pertinent to religious psychotherapists, veterans and novices alike. The highly significant topics and issues discussed include the relationship between clergy and clinician, special considerations in treating the haredi patient, attitude towards and treatment of homosexuals, and responsa by prominent contemporary rabbis regarding the issue of halachic constraints and treatment options, among others. The latter contains anecdotal examples of conflicts and dilemmas that religious therapists encountered in their work that were presented by the editor to various rabbis for their halachic (religious law) rulings. Among the questions raised are: Is the therapist obligated to rebuke a patient when the latter is transgressing serious religious commandments?; Is the therapist permitted to encourage a patient to express his negative feelings towards his/her parents?; Can a therapist continue doing marital therapy after learning that the husband is a Cohen and his wife is a divorcee?; Is cross-gender therapy permissible?, amongst others. --- Religious therapists, rabbis and laymen will find the book stimulating, informative and a worth-while read.

In this stimulating and insightful book, Dr. Strean sensitizes the psychodynamically oriented psychotherapist to the complex and controversial issues surrounding the treatment of the Orthodox Jewish patient. He begins by documenting the ambivalent relationship that has existed historically between psychotherapy and Orthodox Judaism. Then, drawing upon his rich clinical experiences as a psychoanalyst, teacher, and supervisor, Dr. Strean shows clearly how religion serves unconscious, neurotic, and defensive functions as well as adaptive purposes. Written in a personal, self-reflective style, Dr. Strean's case study material illustrates beautifully the relevance and application of psychoanalytic concepts to understanding the life and struggles of the Orthodox Jewish patient. These theoretical and technical constructs include transference and countertransference, the relationship between overt behaviors and their genetic antecedents, and the effects of interpretation on facilitating childhood reconstructions. Dr. Strean conclusively demonstrates that by approaching religious behavior and fantasies in the same metapsychological manner in which psychoanalysis understands all human behavior, the Orthodox Jewish patient becomes a happier person who gets pleasure from life as well as from his or her religion.

Jewish Guide to Practical Medical Decision-Making seeks to remedy that by presenting the most contemporary medical information and rabbinic rulings in an accessible, user-friendly manner. Rabbi Weiner addresses a broad range of medical circumstances such as surrogacy and egg donation, assisted suicide, and end of life decision making. Based on his extensive training and practical familiarity inside a major hospital, Rabbi Weiner provides clear and concise guidance to facilitate complex decision-making for the most common medical dilemmas that arise in contemporary society.

This book contains a potpourri of articles written by haredi and religious mental health practitioners who were employed in a haredi sponsored mental health clinic that treated religious patients. The book is divided into two parts, part one addresses mental health issues and part two applies those issues in treatment cases. In part one, I found the article by a haredi psychoanalyst who described in an open and forthcoming manner the internal conflicts she faced in treating patients from the haredi community fascinating. Other interesting topics discussed in this section include rabbinic attitudes towards psychological treatment, clergy-clinician cooperation in treatment, and responsa by prominent haredi and orthodox rabbis to halachic questions raised by therapists in the treatment process. In the second part, highly creative and successful treatment interventions are described. I believe that mental health professionals, religious and secular, can gain practical insights and ideas for treatment from this book, particularly when working with a haredi and religious population.

I believe that mental health practitioners, rabbis and those interested in the interface between psychotherapy and Judaism will enjoy and benefit from this interesting and informative book.

The author, a clinical psychologist who has worked in a variety of mental health facilities in the U.S. and Israel for over half a century, has shared with us in this book case studies of unconventional psychological treatment interventions such as the use of "phantom" con­sul­tants, clergymen, humor and a projective test, in dealing with challenging cases. Several articles present innovative approaches to supervision and the creative use of a mobile chair in therapy. The interventions and rationale of the treatment of the patients, that include both adults and children with a variety of pathologies and symptoms in different formats, are clearly presented. Some unconventional ideas and suggestions presented in the book, such as the dia­lectical cotherapy treatment approach and the use of a mobile chair in the treatment room, may possibly startle and shock the conventional therapist. Several of the articles were previously published in professional journals in the U. S., UK and Israel and slightly revised. It is hoped that this volume will encourage greater open-mindedness, flexibility and creativity on the part of clinical psychology students, trainees, beginning and seasoned psychotherapists, and expand their armamentarium of psychological tools, techniques and interventions in their clinical work.

In the recent past, there has been a general resurgence of investigative interest in the myriad relationships between psychology and Judaism, and more specifically between the latter and psychotherapy that has greatly enhanced our understanding of the interface between them. This book contributes to that worthwhile goal. Between its covers, one can find a collection of articles by orthodox rabbis, educators, and mental health professionals, which discuss and explore a wide spectrum of relevant and topics of concern to professionals and laymen. Controversial issues, such as the attitude of rabbis towards psychotherapy, clerical-clinician cooperation, and Judaism's view and attitude toward homosexuality are discussed in an open and forthright manner. It is expected that some readers may take exception to the views presented, which will, hopefully, enhance further deliberation on these topics. Throughout the book, rich clinical material is presented to guide the practitioner in treating the ultra-orthodox community; in depicting successful collaboration between rabbis and clinicians; and in enlightening the reader regarding the psychological wisdom and insights of the Jewish sages and religious leaders. Mental health professionals, religious leaders, and the general lay public who are interested in the interface between psychology, psychotherapy, and Judaism, will find this work informative, interesting, and stimulating.

This book presents case studies of the unconventional psychological treatment of orthodox and ultra-orthodox patients by psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric social workers and rabbis. Presenting problems treated include social phobia, obsessive-compulsive, conduct disorder, homosexuality, and severe depression, amongst others. The appendix contains three articles that deal with very sensitive and controversial issues that are highly relevant to the religious mental health practitioner - counseling homosexuals, attitudes of haredi rabbis toward psychological treatment, and cross-gender psychotherapy. The editors are hopeful that this volume will pave the way for haredi rabbis, seminary heads and arbiters to greater appreciation of the value and benefits of psychological treatment for people suffering from emotional, psychological and behavioral difficulties and disturbances. * * * Seymour Hoffman, Ph.
