What do you think works in psychotherapy and how do we know? I think about this a lot as it relates to patient care and the future of our profession (i.e. research grants and awards, and insurance reimbursements). Since evidence-based research is being applied to certain areas of the mental health field but not others I also wonder if we're asking the right questions and who's asking them. For instance, not a lot of dynamically oriented folks seem interested in empirically testing the efficacy of their approach when compared to other interventions. Is this because it's an ineffective approach or there is lack of support for this kind of research in the therapeutic-analytic community?
