Description


Humanistic Psychology: A Clinical Manifesto is destined to impact not only the face of humanistic psychology, but the field of psychotherapy in general. David N. Elkins, a long time leading voice in humanistic psychology, presents a compelling case about what is wrong with contemporary psychotherapy and how, through a re-envisioned humanistic psychology, it needs to change. The book challenges the medical model in psychotherapy and summarizes contemporary analyses and meta-analyses of psychotherapy research that make it clear that "contextual factors" -- not techniques -- are the primary determinants of therapeutic effectiveness. With a foreword written by Natalie Rogers, daughter of Carl Rogers, one of the most influential clinical psychologists of the past century, Elkins is already receiving the praise from many leading figures in the humanistic psychology movement.
