A team of well-known and highly-regarded contributors examine issues which have particular bearing on psychotherapy today. This includes the changing roles for psychotherapists working in primary and secondary care and the demand for practice to be more "evidence-based". A useful summary is provided of existing research into the efficacy and effectiveness of psychotherapy. Looking ahead, the book also examines the future of psychotherapy and considers the effect that the proposed statutory registration will have on the field.
