<i>Maximising the Benefits of Psychotherapy</i> critiques Evidence-Based Practice and puts this in the context of what we know about why therapy works from over seventy years of research.&nbsp; It supports the desire to improve therapeutic practice but suggests that to reduce this to advocating one therapy over another may be premature. Other approaches to improving effectiveness are explored, including the use of feedback from clients and the advantages of&nbsp;Practice-Based Evidence (PBE).</p> <p> <span style="font-family: &quot;Calibri&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';">&nbsp;</span></p> <ul style="margin-top: 0cm;" type="disc"> <li class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0cm 0cm 12pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;">Puts forward a critique of existing research claiming that certain psychotherapy programmes are more effective than others in treating specific disorders</li> <li style="line-height: 115%; margin: 2pt 0cm 12pt; color: black; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;">Includes an accessible summary of key research findings, a practical introduction to a practice-based evidence approach, and a series of detailed case studies</li> </ul> <ul style="margin-top: 0cm;" type="disc"> <li class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 115%; margin: 0cm 0cm 12pt; mso-list: l1 level1 lfo2; tab-stops: list 36.0pt;">Offers a timely alternative to the prevailing wisdom in the mental health field by challenging the practical logic of the Evidence-Based Practice approach</li> </ul> <ul style="margin-top: 0cm;" type="disc"> <li class="MsoNormal" style="line-height: 115%; margin: 0cm 0cm 12pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;">Reviews the empirical evidence examining the effects of client feedback on psychotherapy outcomes </li> </ul>

Industry Reviews

?In keeping with the authors? clear preference for the on-going monitoring of client work, is the belief that on-going monitoring of the supervisory dyad mirrors and enhances the supervisee?s learning, and for that reason alone I would recommend this book to both the practising therapist and those in training.?  (Counselling & Psychotherapy Research, 2 December 2014)
