Preview

The second edition of this book identifies effective elements of therapy relationships (what works in general) as well as effective methods of tailoring or adapting therapy to the individual patient (what works in particular). Each chapter features a specific therapist behavior (e.g., alliance, empathy, support, collecting feedback) that demonstrably improves treatment outcomes or a nondiagnostic patient characteristic (e.g., reactance, preferences, culture, attachment style) by which to effectively tailor psychotherapy. Each chapter presents operational definitions, clinical examples, comprehensive meta-analyses, moderator analyses, and research-supported therapeutic practices. New chapters in this book deal with the alliance with children and adolescents, the alliance in couples and family therapy, and collecting real-time feedback from clients; more ways to tailor treatment; and adapting treatments to patient preferences, culture, attachment style, and religion/spirituality.

Keywords: psychotherapy; cooperative behavior; professional-patient relations; psychotherapy/methods; clinical competence; mental disorders/therapy; evidence-based medicine; treatment outcome; evidence-based practice; meta-analysis
