Puts psychotherapy on trial by critically examining its effectiveness through the lens of the scientific method.
From the Publisher:
Psychologist-attorney Eisner puts psychotherapy on trial by critically examining its effectiveness through the lens of the scientific method. From psychoanalysis to cognitive-behavior therapy as well as the 500 or so other psychotherapies, there is not a single experimental study that supports the effectiveness of psychotherapy over a placebo or religious healing. Using both case examples and clinical research, this book challenges the conclusion that there is empirical support for the notion that psychotherapy is effective.Psychologist-attorney Eisner puts psychotherapy on trial by critically examining its effectiveness through the lens of the scientific method.

Annotation:
Are psychoanalysis or cognitive-behavior therapies effective from a scientific point of view? Eisner poses this question in an examination of psychotherapy practices.

Praise

Publisher's Catalog
"[A] handy reference to understanding the various therapy names that regularly pop up. The book is invaluable to me." - Pamela Freyd 12/20/1999

Publisher's Catalog
"The Death of Psychotherapy skillfully presents a badly needed message: much of therapy lacks scientific backing. In tackling the sad lack of experimental confirmation of clinical findings, Eisner is sure to become a force for change." - Elizabeth Loftus 12/20/1999
