Introduction to the special issue on case studies

Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issue

Abstract

Case studies create a bridge between practice and research. They provide a method for research in which the complexity of the process and outcome of psychotherapy and counseling can be explored and examined. At the same time, they tell the story of an individual therapeutic experience, offering an opportunity for practitioners to reflect on and develop their understanding of theory and practice. They enable and promote communication between proponents of therapeutic approaches as descriptions of theories and practice can be explored for shared understanding and alternative perspectives. Moreover, case studies offer a medium for enabling non-therapists, such as potential clients and commissioners of services, to gain insight into what actually happens inside the therapy room.
