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. This thoroughly revised edition brings a decade ofadditional research to the same task. In addition to updating each chapter, the second edition features new chapters on the effectiveness of the alliance with children and adolescents, the alliance in couples and family therapy, real-time feedback from clients, patient preferences, culture, andattachment style. The new editon provides "two books in one" - one on evidence-based relationship elements and one on evidence-based methods of adapting treatment to the individual patient. Each chapter features a specific therapist behavior that improves treatment outcome, or a transdiagnostic patient characteristic(such as reactance, preferences, culture, stage of change) by which clinicians can effectively tailor psychotherapy. All chapters provide original, comprehensive meta-analyses of the relevant research; clinical examples, and research-supported therapeutic practices by distinguished contributors. Theresult is a compelling synthesis of the best available research, clinical expertise, and patient characteristics in the tradition of evidence-based practice. The second edition of Psychotherapy Relationships That Work: Evidence-Based Responsiveness proves indispensible for any mental health professional.
This book is edited by John C. Norcross, PhD, Professor of Psychology at the University of Scranton.

Editorial Reviews

"An intriguing issue that has fascinated therapy researchers and practicing clinicians alike has been the question of how therapy works. Acknowledging the findings that therapy techniques do indeed contribute to the change process, this empirically based volume convincingly documents the veryimportant role that the therapy relationships plays as well. It is a timely and comprehensive contribution that is relevant for both clinicians and researchers." --Marvin R. Goldfried, Ph.D., President, Society of Clinical Psychology (APA Division 12) and Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychology, Stony Brook University
