By Nikolaos Kazantzis, Frank M. Dattilio and Keith S. Dobson

From leading cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) experts, this book describes ways to tailor empirically supported relationship factors that can strengthen collaboration, empiricism, and Socratic dialogue and improve outcomes. In an accessible style, it provides practical clinical recommendations accompanied by rich case examples and self-reflection exercises. The book demonstrates how to implement a strong case conceptualization and how to decide when to target relationship issues, what specific strategies to use (for example, expressing empathy or requesting client feedback), and how to navigate the therapist’s own emotional responses in session. Special topics include enhancing the therapeutic relationship with couples, families, groups, and children and adolescents.

This work is also available in Dutch.
