Report on Effective Psychotherapy: Legislative Testimony

Russell, Roberta

The purpose of this report was to seek out the common denominator of the "active ingredients" in the therapy process. The study was undertaken with no particular allegiance to any school of thought. My intent was to take a relatively unbiased look at the research done on therapy outcome— and perhaps a more biased exploration of some professionals I thought to be seminal thinkers in the therapy enterprise. I also interviewed professional therapists representative of the profession to gain perspective on what seemed at first to be rather strange research conclusions.
