Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 178–179. Reviews the book, Psychotherapy for Better or Worse: The Problem of Negative Effects by Hans H. Strupp, Suzanne W. Hadley, and Beverly Gomes-Schwartz (1977). This is a book on psychotherapy that automatically claims the attention of all serious students of this subject. The great importance of this book is that it clearly brings to light the conceptual problem on whose complexity virtually all our studies of therapeutic outcome have foundered. The authors of this book recognize and re-evaluate the complexity of the situation that outcome, while empirical, is also in the eye of the beholder. The authors provide more to stimulate informed thought about outcome evaluation. Finally, the authors offer a wise and balanced discussion of the implications of the survey and the research for clinical practice, for public policy, and for further research.
