The Heart & Soul of Change: What Works in Therapy Gebundene Ausgabe – 31. Januar 1999
Seven years ago, we got together at the annual Family Therapy Network Symposium in Washington, D.C. All of us were alarmed that at a time when therapy is being scrutinized by special interest groups, outside agencies, and insurance entities, so many disagreeements continue about what makes therapy work and whose is better. If our own house was in such disorder, we worried that our survival could hardly be assured in the increaingly unfriendly environment professional therapy now finds itself. No longer comfortable sitting on the sidelines and watching the steady parade of therapies, we turned to the research literature for answers about what works in therapy. Our efforts resulted in two books: Escape from Babel and Psychotherapy with "Impossible" Cases. (See the author comments on "Escape" for a story of how that book evolved from beers at the Networker conference.) In all we found that the effectiveness of therapy resides not in the many variables that ostensibly distinguish one approach from another. Instead, it is principally found in the factors that all therapies share in common. To further explore the implications of the common factors, we invited the world's foremost scholars to present their findings in a way that would compel a deep understanding of what really matters in effective therapy. To our surprise and delight, they enthusiastically agreed. The Heart and Soul of Change creates a forum where the important findings bearing on the common factors are presented and evaluated. It represents a collection of the most noted outcome researchers who tell it like it is--not couched in researcherese, but rather in plain clinical terms that make sense of 40 years of data about what makes therapy effective. The Heart and Soul of Change rises above the criticism of most research oriented books--that researchers only write for other researchers and are far removed from the real world experieces of everyday therapists. Instead, the Heart and Soul translates thousands of studies into useful implications for practice. We have been honored to be associated with the contributors of this volume and hope that it encourages more reflection in this era of empirically validated techniques and prescriptive treatments.

- Part One examines what it is that leads to successful outcomes. The evidence suggests that the type of therapy or the techniques used come way down the list.
- Part Two goes into what really matters in therapy: the client (numerous points under this heading), the therapeutic relationship, the effect of placebo and expectation, a critique of the way in which the research community focuses on techniques and models when it should be weighted in other areas, and a chapter on what the research tells us about how people improve and how this knowledge can be used to change how you work.
- Part Three looks at how the knowledge from Parts One and Two can be used in different areas such as medicine, psychiatric drug treatment, family therapy and education.
- Part Four reveals the implications of all the above for you as an individual therapist and for how healthcare is managed.
This book would be valuable reading for healthcare managers as well as mental health workers. It would greatly assist a therapist in how to refine their practice. For those further up the organisational chain, it would help them direct resources in the right areas while avoiding wastage on things that do not significantly improve outcomes. It is written in non-technical language - anyone can pick this up and start to understand the ideas. Its logical format allows you to go straight to the areas you want. The information is well sourced, the reference material is clearly laid out at the end of each chapter and the contributors list impressive. If you are running a mental health organisation, the research based findings in this book will probably be extremely important for you. You may well find you have been doing the wrong things for a long time.
