First published in 2002, the landmark Psychotherapy Relationships That Work broke new ground by focusing renewed and corrective attention on the substantial research behind the crucial (but often overlooked) client-therapist relationship. Now, this thoroughly revised third edition has become a highly cited, widely adopted classic in the field.
Each chapter features a specific therapist behavior that improves treatment outcome, or a transdiagnostic patient characteristic by which clinicians can effectively tailor psychotherapy.
In addition to updating each chapter, the third edition features new chapters on the real relationship, emotional expression, immediacy, therapist self-disclosure, promoting treatment credibility, and adapting therapy to the patient's gender identity and sexual orientation.
All chapters provide original, meta-analyses of the relevant research; clinical examples; landmark studies; diversity considerations; training implications; and most importantly; research-infused therapeutic practices by distinguished contributors. The result is a compelling synthesis of the best available research, clinical expertise, and patient characteristics in the tradition of evidence-based practice.
As was the original, the third edition of Psychotherapy Relationships that Work is "A veritable gold mine of research related to relationships, a volume that should be an invaluable reference for every student and practitioner of psychotherapy."
