Helge Rønnestad har sammen med Thomas Schröder, David Orlinsky og Ulrike Willutzki skrevet kapittelet "Psychotherapeutic Process from the Psychotherapist’s Perspective" i Omar C.G. Gelo, Alfred Pritz, Bernd Rieken (Eds.): Psychotherapy Research. Foundations, Process, and Outcome

Om kapittelet:

I dette kapitlet presenteres først en oversikt over prosessforskning innen psykoterapi med fokus på variasjoner obervasjonsperspektiver og deretter  funn og konseptuelle modeller fra en større internasjonal studie av terapeututvikling (Orlinsky & Rønnestad, 2005). Så følger resultater fra analyser av terapeut og klients vurdering av terapiprosess ved anvendelse av Therapy Session Report (Orlinsky og Howard 1966, 1986). Til slutt gis et nærblikk på terapeuters opplevelser av prosess med utgangspunkt i arbeidene til Schrøder og Davis (e.g. 2005) om terapeuters opplevde vanskeligheter i det terapeutiske arbeidet.

Forlagets omtale:

This book provides readers with essential information on the foundations of psychotherapy research, and on its applications to the study of both psychotherapy process and outcome. The aim is to stimulate a reflection on these issues in a way that will benefit researchers and clinicians, as well as undergraduate and graduate students, at different levels and from different perspectives. Accordingly, the book presents a balanced mix of chapters summarizing the state of the art in the field from different viewpoints and covering innovative topics and perspectives, reflecting some of the most established traditions and, at the same time, emerging approaches in the field in several countries. The contributors, who were invited from among the experts in our national and international professional networks, also represent a healthy mix of leading figures and young researchers. The first part of the book addresses a number of fundamental issues in psychotherapy research at a historical, philosophical, and theoretical level. The second part of the book is concerned with research on psychotherapy processes; in this regard, both quantitative and qualitative approaches are given equal consideration in order to reflect the growing relevance of the latter. The book’s third and last part examines research on psychotherapy outcomes, primarily focusing on quantitative approaches. Offering a balanced mix of perspectives, approaches and topics, the book represents a valuable tool for anyone interested in psychotherapy research.
