30 of 31 people found the following review helpful By Scott D. Miller on May 1, 2000
Format: Hardcover
The effectiveness of treatment has routinely been attributed to the technique a therapist uses or the therapist using the techniques. Witness so much emphasis on the model of therapy at continuing education programs and in graduate education. Finally, someone has gathered together evidence about what really makes therapy work--or better said, who. Researchers Art Bohart and Karen Tallman have compiled a compelling, readable, and practical summary of the research on the client's contribution to change in treatment. As noted above, the client is the single largest contributor to change in treatment--accounting for the largest percentage of the variance in treatment outcome.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Z. on March 28, 2002
Format: Hardcover
In the psychotherapy profession we spend so much time focusing on how therapists make therapy work. Bohart and Tallman, relying on numerous research studies, remind us that it is the client, not the therapist, who makes therapy work. Bohart and Tallman make clear we can do a more effective job as facilitors if we keep clear that the client, not our our techniques are what makes the difference. A great book, carefully researched, well-written and full of ideas worth thinking about. Phillip Ziegler, co-author of Recreating Partnership: A Solution-Oriented, Collaborative Approach to Couples Therapy

Dr. Bohart knows his stuff. All very useful information. I contend the client makes therapy work, it is up to him/her to take the tools the professional offers and use them to resolve his/her issues.

This book and its premise reinforces my perception that there is little I can do as a therapist without the client being willing and able to do the work it will take to resolve conflicts, weaknesses, doubts, feelings and most other experiences that motivate them to seek therapy and grow from the experience. This book also underlines the idea that most of us have the tools to deal with mental and emotional problems successfully, and, for the most part, these tools can be learned. I expect that this book will help to make me a better therapist.
