View all copies of this ISBN edition:

While empirical, scientific research has much to offer to the practice-oriented therapist in training, it is often difficult to effectively engage the trainee, beginning practitioner, or graduate student in a subject area that can often glaze over the eyes of a reader focused on practical work.  Most books about psychotherapy focus either on the process of gathering, analyzing, presenting, and discussing research results, or on conducting clinical work.  What most of these texts lack is an engaging, accessible guide on how to incorporate research into practice.  Research for the Psychotherapist: From Science to Practice fills that niche with an approach that bridges the gap between research and practice, presenting concise chapters that distill research findings and clearly apply them to practical issues. 

Jay Lebow is an accomplished practitioner and researcher in the fields of marriage and family therapy and integrative psychotherapy. In this book, he offers a focused volume that covers a range of topics.  This volume should appeal to psychotherapists and students looking for an accessible, jargon-free guide to utilizing research in practical settings.

About the Author:

Jay Lebow, Ph.D., LCP, ABPP, LMFT, is a licensed clinical psychologist and research consultant at The Family Institute at Northwestern, and Clinical Professor of Psychology at Northwestern University.  A past president of the Family Psychology Division (43) of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Lebow is also an active member and approved supervisor of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), a board member of the American Family Therapy Academy, and is a Fellow in APA divisions 12 (Clinical Psychology), 29 (Psychotherapy) and 43 (Family Psychology).


"The eminent family therapist Jay Lebow has written a wonderfully readable book of short essays highlighting various contemporary issues germane to the science and practice of psychological interventions. While writings about these issues tend to be dogmatic, Lebow's perspectives are broad and balanced. Everyone involved in developing and delivering psychotherapy and psychological treatments would benefit from acquaintance with these perspectives." -David H. Barlow, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor and Director of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University, USA

"In this book Dr Jay Lebow tackles one of the most pressing and daunting problems facing behavioral health today: the relationship between science and practice. In a series of well written concise chapters he astutely summarizes and presents a well reasoned analysis of the key issues in this problem.  He repeatedly strikes at the heart of the matter and is a balanced and astute arbiter of these issues. It is an engaging and must read for anyone who cares about this issue and cares about the future of psychotherapy. -Bill O'Donohue, Ph.D., Professor at University of Nevada, Reno, USA

"This is a book for our times. Written in a short and crisp fashion it makes the material easily accessible covering topics highly useful to the clinician such as how to assess research findings quickly and what is true about what is truly effective." - Leslie S. Greenberg, Ph.D., Professor at York University

" engaging, stimulating and provocative read. Lebow succeeds in challenging the overly polarised current situation, where many therapists indicate that research has less direct influence on their developing practice than supervision, or their own personal therapy, useful as these latter factors may be." - Peter Jenkins, Counselling and Psychotherapy Research
