The Heart and Soul of Change

The Heart and Soul of Change, 2nd Ed, is a new 8-hour book-based CEU course for psychotherapists.

The Heart and Soul of ChangeHow does psychotherapy work? As research on psychotherapy has accumulated, it has become increasingly clear that common factors like the therapeutic alliance constitute the primary mechanisms for change. This text reviews the empirical research literature, distills the common factors associated with change, and presents them in a clear and straightforward manner for practicing clinicians. Topics include client and therapist factors, the therapeutic alliance, the common factors approach, common factors within psychiatric drug treatment, outcome monitoring (practice-based evidence), and common factors for specific populations (youth psychotherapy, couple and family psychotherapy, and substance abuse/dependence treatment). This CE test is based on the book “The Heart and Soul of Change (2nd Edition): Delivering What Works in Therapy” (2009, 455 pages). The book can be purchased from Amazon.
