Dirk Zimmermann illustrates that some therapists significantly differ concerning their average dropout rates. He points out that initial impairment is a strong predictor of early termination. Different dropout criteria as well as various explaining variables on patient and on therapist level were assessed. Premature treatment termination is a common phenomenon in psychotherapy with mean dropout rates of about 20%. Therapist effects account for 3%-4% of the variation in dropout.
Dirk Zimmermann studied psychology in Osnabrück (Germany), Bergen (Norway) and Trier (Germany). He works as a research associate at the department of clinical psychology and psychotherapy at the University of Trier since 2014. In addition he is a psychological psychotherapist in training.
