Psychotherapy, like most other areas of health care, is a synthesis of scientific technique and artistic expression. In recognition of these two basic skill sets within the field, the editors have compiled a group of leading therapists to give insight into the creative side of psychotherapy. Central to this collection is the premise that a toolbox full of treatment approaches, no matter how comprehensive, is not enough to effectively reach your patients.

This book addresses the fundamental split between the researchers and scholars who use scientific methods to develop disorder-specific treatment techniques and those more clinically inclined therapists who emphasize the individual, interpersonal aspects of the therapeutic process. Once this polarization of approaches is clearly defined, contributors systematically unearth and explore the variety of unspecific, subtle factors in psychotherapy that are often overlooked by even those therapists who are conscious of interpersonal theories.
