About the Author

"Drawing together leading contributors to psychotherapy research, training, and practice, Muran and Barber provide an unparalleled opportunity to develop a critically balanced, research-informed understanding of key factors that contribute to productive therapeutic alliances in differing therapy approaches. I have no doubt that this book will become an 'instant classic' in the field of psychotherapy, one that will continue to shape alliance research and practice in the years to come." - Lynne E. Angus, Adult Clinical Psychology Graduate Program, York University, Canada; President-Elect, Society for Psychotherapy Research "This is a great book, edited by highly esteemed experts and featuring contributions by the best conceivable authors for this topic. The most current empirical evidence on the therapeutic alliance is reviewed, but the book's greatest value for psychotherapy practitioners, trainers, and trainees of any orientation resides in its recommendations for practice. I highly recommend this volume for anyone who wishes to learn how to establish and improve a therapeutic alliance." - Franz Caspar, Department of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, University of Bern, Switzerland "This book provides an invaluable and comprehensive review of the state of the evidence on what is arguably the most important common factor to therapy outcome/m-/the therapeutic alliance. Each chapter is written by the leading experts in the field. In addition to excellent chapters on measurement, prediction, change over time, negative experiences, and repair of alliance ruptures, the volume includes important chapters from psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive and behavioral, and other perspectives. If you were to buy only one book on psychotherapy this year, you would be hard-pressed to find a better alternative!" - Michael E. Thase, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, USA
