How and Why Are Some Therapists Better Than Others?: Understanding Therapist Effects Hardcover – May 15, 2017  by Louis G. Castonguay (Author), Clara E. Hill (Author)

We know intuitively that some therapists are better than others, but we don’t fully understand why. To answer this question, Louis Castonguay and Clara Hill compiled this comprehensive guide that brings together expert scholars and clinicians from a variety of theoretical backgrounds. They explore the empirical foundations of therapist effects as a broad concept and propose practical strategies to help mental health practitioners become more effective. Chapters also closely examine specific therapist characteristics, skills, and attitudes that are relevant to all clinical contexts, including therapeutic presence, cultural competence, reactions to negative emotions, and humor.
