Second edition of Wampold’s, ‘The Great Psychotherapy Debate,’ now available

January 29, 2015

The second edition of Bruce Wampold’s, “The Great Psychotherapy Debate: The Evidence for What Makes Psychotherapy Work,” has been updated and revised to expand the presentation of the Contextual Model, which is derived from a scientific understanding of how humans heal in a social context and explains findings from a vast array of psychotherapies studies.

Wampold book coverWampold is the Patricia L. Wolleat Professor of Counseling Psychology at UW-Madison, and the director of the Research Institute at Modum Bad Psychiatric Center in Vikersund, Norway. “The Great Psychotherapy Debate,” is co-authored by the University of Utah’s Zac Imel.

According to a web page promoting the second edition of the book, the Contextual Model “provides a compelling alternative to traditional research on psychotherapy, which tends to focus on identifying the most effective treatment for particular disorders through emphasizing the specific ingredients of treatment. The new edition also includes a history of healing practices, medicine, and psychotherapy, an examination of therapist effects, and a thorough review of the research on common factors such as the alliance, expectations, and empathy.”

The description adds that the new edition “also includes a history of healing practices, medicine, and psychotherapy, an examination of therapist effects, and a thorough review of the research on common factors such as the alliance, expectations, and empathy.”
