From the PublisherReviews of the first edition:
'Psychotherapy is here to stay. This first-class book provides an unrivalled basis for further discussion as to how to make it more effective both ethically and professionally."
"This most valuable and timely book should be read by all involved in planning and provision of National Health Service psychotherapy. The authors, a medical psychotherapist and a philosopher, combine forces to illuminate the nature of psychotherapy, its social role, and the associated complex scientific and ethical questions."
"As a collaborative volume The Values of Psychotherapy is highly successful….The book is throughout refreshingly free from jargon. It also avoids the self-important seriousness of much psychotherapeutic literature. The issues addressed are serious issues. But they are tackled with a light touch and, in places, considerable humor."
"In the current situation of vigorous debate about psychotherapy, its place in the NHS, and the questions of the new profession, this is a necessary and timely book."
