Therapist techniques and client outcomes: eight cases of brief psychotherapy
As a therapist, would it be useful to learn what other therapists actually do in therapy sessions and possibly discover new ways of approaching clinical situations? Or, as a client, do you often feel uncertain as to what to expect or how to behave in therapy sessions? And as a researcher, would you rather use a method for analyzing the psychotherapy process and outcome that does not interfere with the nature of the clinical treatment? The author of Therapist Techniques and Client Outcomes analyzes these questions, and many others, from the varying perspectives of the therapist, the client and the researcher. She examines eight cases of brief psychotherapy with experienced, psychodynamic therapists and anxious//depressed female clients.
