Editorial Reviews


"The eminent family therapist Jay Lebow has written a wonderfully readable book of short essays highlighting various contemporary issues germane to the science and practice of psychological interventions. While writings about these issues tend to be dogmatic, Lebow's perspectives are broad and balanced. Everyone involved in developing and delivering psychotherapy and psychological treatments would benefit from acquaintance with these perspectives." -David H. Barlow, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor and Director of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University, USA

"In this book Dr Jay Lebow tackles one of the most pressing and daunting problems facing behavioral health today: the relationship between science and practice. In a series of well written concise chapters he astutely summarizes and presents a well reasoned analysis of the key issues in this problem.  He repeatedly strikes at the heart of the matter and is a balanced and astute arbiter of these issues. It is an engaging and must read for anyone who cares about this issue and cares about the future of psychotherapy. -Bill O'Donohue, Ph.D., Professor at University of Nevada, Reno, USA

"This is a book for our times. Written in a short and crisp fashion it makes the material easily accessible covering topics highly useful to the clinician such as how to assess research findings quickly and what is true about what is truly effective." - Leslie S. Greenberg, Ph.D., Professor at York University

"...an engaging, stimulating and provocative read. Lebow succeeds in challenging the overly polarised current situation, where many therapists indicate that research has less direct influence on their developing practice than supervision, or their own personal therapy, useful as these latter factors may be." - Peter Jenkins, Counselling and Psychotherapy Research
