Summary
"On Becoming a Better Therapist redirects our attention from specific treatments to our behaviors and attitudes as therapists, offering a refreshing look at improving treatment that operates outside the contemporary solution of providing the "right psychological treatment for the right disorder." This book provides simple but elegant solutions for becoming a more effective therapist. In On Becoming a Better Therapist, Barry Duncan emphasizes the therapist and the therapist's contribution to patient well-being, extending the usual solutions provided in graduate education and challenging therapists in two important ways. The first requires therapists to systematically monitor their clients' treatment response and the therapeutic alliance (as rated by the client) and to discuss these phenomena with the client. The second challenge is for therapists to examine their effectiveness over time and use this information to become more effective. The discourse is on the one hand highly personal, anecdotal, passionate, and persuasive, and on the other, evidence-based. Barry Duncan is one of a handful of individuals advocating and implementing client progress information as an integral method of helping while learning from our patients. Duncan makes improving patient outcomes the private and primary business of therapists, rather than policymakers and researchers. In this persuasive book he shows therapists how they can empower themselves and change their identities from providers of brand-name treatments to effective providers"--Foreword.
