Review of Effective Psychotherapy: A Handbook of Research. Edited by Alan S. Gurman and Andrew M. Razin. Pergamon General Psychology Series, vol. 70. Elmsford, N.Y.: Pergamon Press, 1977

Mullen, Edward Joseph

This volume, together with S. Garfield and A. Bergin's revised Handbook
of Psychotherapy and Behavior Change (New York: John Wiley & Sons,
1978), provides the mental health practitioner and student who are willing
to explore the merits of a scientific approach to practice with excellent
beginning points. A reading of this volume will provide a sense of the
current conceptual and methodological limits circumscribing the scientific
study of the intervenor in psychotherapy and the product of that study to
date. Most important, the reader will have an opportunity to experience
the process of an effectiveness-oriented, empirically based, scientific approach
to understanding practice.
