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.
