While "psychotherapy" has been busily dividing into hundreds of different models, research shows that it doesn't really matter which approach you use. Yet there are some factors, across models, that do matter.

Booknews

Urges psychotherapists to abandon their allegiance to a particular model, method, or guru and focus on aspects of treatment that are common to all schools in the field. Among those are respect for the client's point of view, the therapeutic relationship, the client's hope and plan for the future, and using techniques and models to provide structure and introduce novelty. Presents a number of short vignettes and two extended case studies. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
