<p>“In keeping with the authors’ clear preference for the on-going monitoring of client work, is the belief that on-going monitoring of the supervisory dyad mirrors and enhances the supervisee’s learning, and for that reason alone I would recommend this book to both the practising therapist and those in training.” (<i>Counselling & Psychotherapy Research</i>, 2 December 2014)</p>
<b>David Green</b> is a clinical psychologist who has worked therapeutically for more than 30 years with young people and their families.

His clinical and research interests are mostly around psychological interventions in medical settings, and he has published several papers and book chapters on this topic.</p>
Within <i>Maximising the Benefits of Psychotherapy</i>, the authors review the evidence for and against Evidence-Based Practice (EBP), viewed as the ‘standard’ approach to how psychotherapy services should best be provided and put this in the context of what we know about why therapy works from over seventy years of research. <br /> <br /> <p><span style="font-family: "Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';"> </span></p> <p>The book supports the desire to improve therapeutic practice but suggests that to reduce this to advocating one therapy over another may be premature. Other approaches to improving effectiveness are explored, including the use of feedback from clients and the advantages of Practice-Based Evidence (PBE). This approach offers a more flexible, but compatible, alternative; it allows therapists to draw on a full range of established theoretical models in designing interventions, the effectiveness of which is determined by a continuous flow of feedback from their clients. The treatment thus provided can be characterised as both client-directed and outcome informed (CDOI). This book reviews some of the history behind efforts to determine the effectiveness of psychotherapy, and describes the theoretical rationale and emerging research evidence for the PBE approach in general and the CDOI system in particular.</p> <p><span style="font-family: "Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-bidi-font-family: 'Times New Roman';"> </span></p> <p>This book includes both an accessible summary of key research findings and a practical introduction to a practice-based evidence approach. It offers a timely alternative - and a significant conceptual challenge - to the prevailing wisdom in the mental health field. The authors include a series of detailed case studies in order to illustrate the method in action.</p>
Green and Latchford are to be congratulated on writing a landmark book on their unique evidence-based approach to psychotherapy. In a field increasingly dominated by protocol-driven practice, they offer their client-directed, outcome-informed approach as a genuine alternative. This approach represents a marriage of scientific rigour with clinical artistry. All therapists – both novices and experts – should read this book.<br /> —<b><i>Alan Carr</i></b><i>,</i> <i>Director of Clinical Psychology</i><i>,</i> <i>University College Dublin</i> <p>This is about evidence-based practice that you must and will want to read. Green and Latchford provide welcome relief from the mindless protocols and treatment guidelines that dominate so much of modern professional discourse and practice. In the process, they offer practitioners, researchers, educators, and policy makers a research-based alternative to improving the quality and outcome of behavioral health practice.<br /> —<b><i>Scott Miller</i></b><i>, Director, International Centre for Clinical Excellence and Cummings Professor of Behavioral Health, Arizona State University</i></p>
