Description

In Qualities and Actions of Effective Therapists, Bruce E. Wampold discusses the essential aspects of effective therapy. Although evidence conclusively shows that psychotherapy is effective, evidence also shows that some therapists consistently achieve better outcomes than do others. Research has begun to identify the qualities that effective therapists have and the actions that they take to produce positive therapeutic outcomes.

In this DVD, Bruce Wampold discusses the things therapists do and the ways that they conduct sessions to help improve outcome, including verbal fluency, affect modulation, empathy, and the ability to provide an explanation for the client's distress. Wampold illustrates each therapist characteristic or action with demonstrations from actual therapy sessions, enabling viewers to observe compelling examples of skills that deepen and strengthen the therapeutic process.
