Clearly laying out the factors associated with positive therapeutic outcomes, it gives suggestions for further reading, definitions of key terms, and questions for discussion.

Review:

Essential reading for trainers, trainees, practitioners and those involved in counselling and psychotherapy research...The success of Cooper s work lies in its clarity, accessibility and user friendliness. In each chapter key points are summarised. Technical terms highlighted, recommended reading indicated and implications for practice signposted. --Andy Hill, Senior Lecturer in Counselling at the University of Salford and Primary Care Psychological Therapist for Bolton PCT

Research reports do not usually make for riveting reading, so I had expected this book to be rather dry. However, nothing could be further from the truth as Mick Cooper has managed to create a text that is interesting and informative as well as engaging...certainly deserves a place on every counsellor and psychotherapist s bookshelf. --Therapy Today, March 2009

As a scholar of psychotherapy research I highly recommend this book as a remarkable summary of findings and their implications for practice as we enter the 21st century. Essential information to consider by professionals and students alike as they become more effective practitioners. --Michael Lambert
