Psychotherapy meets neuroscience: A more focused future for psychotherapy research

  • Peter Fonagy (a1)
Extract

The ‘evidence base’ for my contribution to futurology is a set of integrative reviews of outcome studies of psychotherapy on which I have collaborated with a number of colleagues (Roth & Fonagy 1996; Fonagy et al, 2002a,b). This work is a pleasure, not so much because of the enlightenment that reading hundreds of papers provides, but rather because of the technical challenges that compiling material across broad fields invariably presents.
