I just submitted:
  Therapeutic Communication: Principles and Effective Practice by
  Paul L. Watchel, Ellen F. Wachtel (Postscipt)
  This book emphasizes the discussion and use of psychotherapeutic, 
psychodynamic techniques. Although this book emphasizes psychodynamic, 
psychotherapeutic techniques and is, therefore, a practical book, this volume 
also explores an integrative theory of psychological pathology and 
psychological change. Even though the theory discussed is based on the 
psycho-dynamic tradition, it also draws upon the discoveries and insights of 
other psychotherapeutic orientations.  Throughout the book, the rationales for 
the clinical interventions recommended are discussed in depth, and the reader 
is given the reasons why one way of saying things is preferable to another. 
Finally, even though, the writing is often technical, the writers do not use 
much psychological jargon and this makes it easy to read and understand. 
  I prevalidated everything in the book except for the Reference and Index 
sections. Also, in Chapter 12, I rearranged some of the text and added the 
phrase [THERAPIST COMMENT] when appropriate to facilitate the reader's 
understanding. Thus, this should be an easy validation for anyone interested in
