The Great Psychotherapy Debate: the evidence for what makes psychotherapy work

practice-iconThe second edition of The Great Psychotherapy Debate (by Bruce Wampold and Zac Imel) has been updated and revised to expand the presentation of the Contextual Model, which is derived from a scientific understanding of how humans heal in a social context and explains findings from a vast array of psychotherapy studies. This model provides a compelling alternative to traditional research on psychotherapy, which tends to focus on identifying the most effective treatment for particular disorders through emphasising the specific ingredients of treatment.

The new edition also includes a history of healing practices, medicine, and psychotherapy, an examination of therapist effects, and a thorough review of the research on common factors such as the alliance, expectations, and empathy.
