Synopsis

Psychotherapy Relationships That Work Evidence-Based Responsiveness by John C., PhD. Norcross

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 of additional 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, and attachment 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. The result 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. 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 very important 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

Reviews

This thoroughly revised book directs us to what relationships work in psychotherapy and to effective ways of tailoring the relationship to the unique needs of individual clients. Dr. Norcross and contributors have compiled a most useful resource for practitioners and students. * Gerald Corey, EdD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Human Services and Counseling * John Norcross and his contributors have created a stunningly valuable resource for researchers and clinicians alike. This landmark second edition transcends theoretical orientation, client population, treatment format, and clinical severity. Clinicians in particular will find the 'therapeutic practices
section of each chapter to be thought

-provoking and immediately applicable. Truly, evidence-based responsiveness works. * Carol D. Goodheart, EdD, Past President, American Psychological Association * This excellent resource is a treasure! Norcross
second edition of Psychotherapy Relationships That Work is the gold standard in providing current evidence on how the psychotherapist client

/patient relationship promotes change. Educators, clinical researchers and practitioners will be informed, inspired and moved by an immersion into the evidenced based understanding of the change process. * Melba Vasquez, PhD, ABPP, Independent Practive, Austin, Texas and APA President, 2011 * An intriguing issue that has fascinated therapy researchers and practicing clinicians alike has been the question of how therapy works.
