This book boldly asks whether and when psychotherapy works. It proposes a groundbreaking model of psychological and psychiatric assessment and treatment. The therapist's responsibility is to deliver a treatment that is effective. Two independent data sources measure progress and correct for imprecision in the therapist's clinical judgment. The book is intended as a guide for any office-based mental health clinician who wants to maximize his or her therapy.
