Summary:The growing dissatisfaction with the excessive use of drugs has encouraged practitioners to reconsider the possibilities of psychological treatments for mental illness. In the past, such treatment was avoided because of apparent inefficacy or lack of proof. The contributions in this book concentrate on the methodology of evaluating psychological treatments, based on extensive past research. The range of topics is confined to treatments involving adults, sick or disabled people and deals with both serious psychotic and milder neurotic problems. Reference is made both to psychodynamic psychotherapies and behavioural approaches; and not only the English, but also the French and German literature is covered. The book will prove valuable to researchers seeking to resolve ambiguities, to build confidence in proven methods and to point the way for further research
