Summary
In this book, Ronald B. Miller contends that we seek psychotherapy to relieve our suffering. For those who practice clinical psychology, therapy is thus a moral undertaking. Yet for historical reasons, psychological science has, in Miller's view, become a demoralized realm of theory and research, with limited relevance to practice. In a broad, multidisciplinary review of the literature, Miller argues that there is an urgent need for a learning process that helps prepare students for therapeutic encounters. He proposes that the clinical case study is the optimal vehicle for communicating clinical knowledge and conducting clinical research. Although case studies are frequently derided as being of limited applicability, Miller shows how, by following a quasijudicial method, "case law" and reliable principles of practice can be developed.
