Editorial Reviews

Review


"The present volume, comprising collaborative review articles by top US psychotherapy researchers, integrates the findings of both camps and identifies superordinate principles applicable across different psychotherapy schools. It focuses on psychotherapeutic treatments for four major groups of disorders: dysphoric disorders, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and substance misuse. The result is a measured, balanced, open-minded, scholarly, readable and inspiring compendium."--British Journal of Psychiatry


"In sum, Castonguay and Beutler's edited volume Principles of Therapeutic Change that Work has much to offer clinical researchers and practitioners alike. The principles the Task Force delineated are terrific contributions. Further, their effort to integrate across diverse literatures and theoretical camps is laudable and well done."--Psychological Medicine

"Both of them seasoned researchers and clinicians, Castonguay and Beutler established a task force sponsored by Division 12 and the North American Society for Psychotherapy Research that would specify variables associated with change that were based on research findings--rather than on a persons favorite theoretical variables...this volume represents an important step in the history of therapy, and has the potential to dramatically change how we think about therapy clinically and to inform us about the kind of research that is needed. As such, it represents an exciting beginning."--The Clinical Psychologist

More About the Author

Louis G. Castonguay, Ph.D.
Bio- sketch

After his undergraduate studies in Psychology at the University of Sherbrooke and a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology at the University of Montreal, he completed his doctorate in Clinical Psychology at S.U.N.Y. Stony Brook, a clinical internship at U.C. Berkeley, and a Post-doctorate at Stanford University.

He is currently Professor at the Department of Psychology at The Pennsylvania State University, where he also served as the Associate Director for the Clinical Program and the Director of the Graduate Studies.

His research focuses on the process of change in different forms of psychotherapy (cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and integrative), especially for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression. Within this context, he has investigated several factors related to the client (e.g., emotional experience), therapist (e.g., focus of intervention) and the therapeutic relationship (e.g., working alliance). He is also involved in the investigation of the efficacy of new integrative treatments for generalized anxiety disorder and depression. With students and colleagues, he is also conducting effectiveness research aimed at better understanding and possibly improving psychotherapy as practice in natural settings.

He has more than 140 publications, including five co-edited books: On empirically based principles of change in psychotherapy (with Larry Beutler); insight in psychotherapy (with Clara Hill); corrective experiences in psychotherapy (with Clara Hill); the integration movement in psychotherapy (with Conrad Lecomte); and on the legacy of influential figures of the Society for Psychotherapy Research, SPR (with Chris Muran, Lynne Angus, Jeff Hayes, Nick Ladany, and Tim Anderson).

Based on his dissertation research (on the process of change in cognitive therapy for depression), he won the Graduate Student Paper Competition awarded by the Division of Psychotherapy of the American Psychological Association (APA). He has also received the Early Career Contribution Award from SPR, the Jack D. Krasner Memorial Award from the APA Division of Psychotherapy, and the David Shakow Early Career Award from the APA Division of Clinical Psychology. With Thomas Borkovec and Stephen Ragusea, he has received the Pennsylvania Psychological Association Presidential Award for their work on a state-wide Practice-Research Network. He has also received three additional recognitions from the APA Division of Psychotherapy: the Distinguished Psychologist Award for his life time contributions to the field of psychotherapy, the Distinguished Contributions to Teaching and Mentoring, as well as the Distinguished Research Publications Award.

He served as President of the International Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR) and the North American Society for Psychotherapy Research (NASPR), and co-chaired (with Larry Beutler) the APA Division of Clinical Psychology and NASPR Task Force on Empirically Based Principles of Therapeutic Change. He also serves on the Steering Committee of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration (SEPI). Moreover, he has co-chaired (with Clara Hill) The Penn State Conferences on The Process of Change, which has regrouped prominent psychotherapy researchers interested in delineating quantitative and qualitative methods that can help us better understand how clients' change.

He chaired the Pennsylvania Psychological Association-Practice Research Network (PPA PRN), and has been chairing for several years the committee responsible for the creation and implementation of a Practice Research Network at the Psychology Clinic of the Penn State University. He has also team up with Ben Locke and Jeff Hayes in developing a Practice Research Network involving more than 150 Counseling and Psychological Centers on college campuses in the US. With David Kraus, he is also in the process of creating an international Research Practice Network, which will allow them to develop a large infrastructure for the conduct of clinically meaningful and scientifically rigorous studies on the process and outcome of psychotherapy. These are part of a number of initiatives that he has been involved in with the goal of fostering an active collaboration between researchers and clinicians. He also maintains a part-time private practice.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Anthony Centore Ph.D. on February 9, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I don't know if this applies as a full review or just a few quick notes/thoughts.

I bought this book recently because I am interested in optimizing my own therapeutic effectiveness, and thought the book would provide some good techniques or principles that would guide my time with clients.

Unfortunately, the book is heavy in theory and written by persons who are obviously good at research and statistics, but not good at communicating their findings in a way that can be applied.

I'm not saying not to buy the book, but expect to do a lot of work getting through this book, and even more translating it from Professional Journal speak into something with utility for your practice.

Hope this helps!

Final Note: If you're interested in learning telephone or online counseling, this book is really good: The Therapist's Clinical Guide to Online Counseling and Telephone Counseling: The Definitive Training Guide for Clinical Practice
