'Essential research findings in counselling and psychotherapy: the facts are friendly' provides trainees, students, practitioners and researchers with a comprehensive introduction to the latest findings in the field. It is accessible even to those with no background knowledge of research methods and sets out the evidence for the effectiveness of therapy in an entirely jargon-free way. It presents the factors associated with positive therapeutic outcomes and provides suggestions for further reading, definitions of key terms, and questions for discussion.
