This text explores how psychotherapists can use deliberate practice to improve their clinical effectiveness. By sourcing through decades of research on how experts in diverse fields achieve skill mastery, the author proposes it is possible for any therapist to dramatically improve their effectiveness. However, achieving expertise isn’t easy. To improve, therapists must focus on clinical challenges and reconsider century-old methods of clinical training from the ground up. This volume presents a step-by-step program to engage readers in deliberate practice to improve clinical effectiveness across the therapists’ entire career span, from beginning training for graduate students to continuing education for licensed and advanced clinicians.

This book presents essential background necessary for understanding the role of theory in psychotherapy practice, and shows how understanding psychotherapy theory is the first step to becoming an effective therapist. The author provides a thorough but concise overview of the history of psychotherapy, the evolution of psychotherapy theories, and research on the effectiveness of various psychotherapies in general practice and for treatment of specific common disorders. The book is an accessible, handy resource for students training to be psychotherapists and practitioners seeking to reevaluate theories and corresponding therapies. As the foundational book in the Theories of Psychotherapy Series, this title may be read first or in combination with other books in the series to establish a thorough understanding of psychotherapy and its variants. This updated second edition incorporates new developments in theory and research, new approaches including advances in culturally sensitive therapy, and updates in the classification of mental illness.
How Master Therapists Work engages the reader in experiencing what really happens in therapy with master therapists: who they are, what they do, and how they bring about significant change in clients. It examines one master therapist’s actual six-session therapy (also available on DVD) that transformed a client’s life, resulting in changes that have been sustained for more than seven years. Session transcriptions directly involve the reader in every aspect of the therapeutic change process. This is followed by the commentary of a master therapist-psychotherapy researcher who explains how these changes were effected from a psychotherapy research perspective. Next, the master therapist who effected these changes explains what he was thinking and why he did what he did at key points in the therapy process. Then, the client shares her thoughts on this life changing therapeutic experience. This is a must have, one-of-a-kind book that will greatly enhance the therapeutic understanding and skills of both practicing therapists and therapists-in-training.
Closer regulation of psychological counselling means that an awareness of the professional, legal and ethical considerations is vital. The second edition of Handbook of Professional and Ethical Practice offers a clear, stimulating, and structured introduction to a number of contemporary issues of professional and ethical practice. Rachel Tribe and Jean Morrissey have brought together updated, re-written and new contributions from professionals in the interrelated fields of psychology, psychotherapy and counselling, which illustrate the professional and ethical dilemmas involved in mental health practice. Academic and clinical experiences are skilfully combined with personal reflection to produce a comprehensive resource that addresses challenges that therapeutic practitioners are faced with on a daily basis. Each chapter places particular emphasis on the current codes of practice and ethical principles underpinning safe ethical practice and the implications for practitioners. Comprehensive coverage of the legal, clinical and ethical considerations involved in research and training is provided and the reflective questions at the end of every chapter serve to prompt further discussion of the issues. Chapters are enhanced by clinical vignettes that illustrate the particular issues at hand, as well as detailed bibliographies that point the reader towards the latest literature on the subject. The book is divided into 5 sections: Professional practice and ethical considerations Legal considerations and responsibilities Clinical considerations and responsibilities Working with diversity – professional practice and ethical considerations Research Supervision and Training This new, updated edition reflects the changes in the environment in which therapists and psychologists work. Covering a wide range of perspectives, clinical settings and client populations, Handbook of Professional and Ethical Practice 2nd edition will be an invaluable source of both information and inspiration to psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists and practitioners of diverse orientations and stages of professional development and to those interested in a contemporary, multi-disciplinary approach to best practice in mental health.
In Practicing Psychotherapy in Constructed Reality: Ritual, Charisma, and Enhanced Client Outcomes, Stephen Bacon charts a radical and provocative new direction forward for psychotherapy. Based on the research finding that techniques have no inherent power, and the insights of constructionism, Bacon explores new ways of understanding therapeutic rituals, therapist charisma, and client-centered therapy. Special emphasis is given to an analysis of the work of master therapists, and all of the concepts are illustrated with numerous clinical examples. Finally, Bacon develops a geography of constructed reality which pragmatically supports deliberate practice and therapist mindfulness.
