This volume is the seventh in the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Series. One of the aims of this series is to promote the pan-European community of psychoanalytic psychotherapists. Accordingly, the contributors for this book come from different cultures but are united in their view on the importance of empirical research in psychotherapy. The chapters examine issues as varied as the treatment of eating disorders with psychoanalytic psychotherapy, the differences between psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, treatment outcomes of group psychotherapy, and the treatment of borderline personality disorders.
"In the present-day culture of evidence-based practice as a guiding principle for the delivery of public- and private-sector health services, the critical importance of collating empirical research findings relating to psychoanalytic psychotherapy cannot be overstated. Evidence-based clinical guidelines are increasingly finding their way into the mental health arena and, as of yet, the place of psychoanalytic psychotherapy within such guidelines is far from extensive. The present monograph brings together a number of research reports and overviews, all of which have used conventional empirical research methodologies and illustrate, we believe, the potential of such methods to explore questions of real significance to psychoanalytic psychotherapists throughout Europe." -- From the Preface
"This is a pioneering volume of work in progress. It is important and exciting work by talented pioneers who have responded effectively to an intellectual as well as a professional call. It is clear from the variety of findings reported in this stimulating volume that many of the traditional ideas concerning psychoanalytic psychotherapy will need to be revised." -- Peter Fonagy from the Foreword
