• the key to successful therapy
• oriented around practice and application
Establishing a relationship of trust between therapist and patient is fundamental to the success of the treatment. In order to ensure that the 'chemistry' is right, the therapist needs to form this relationship actively and with specific goals. Claas-Hinrich Lammers describes the therapeutic relationship in behavioural therapy in a detailed and practice-oriented way, at the same time shedding light on the basics of how to form this relationship. There is also a discussion about what are, sometimes, divergent conceptions of how to form this relationship from the different approaches to behavioural therapy.
