Untangling the alliance-outcome correlation: exploring the relative importance of therapist and patient variability in the alliance.
Clinical implications include therapists monitoring their contribution to the alliance, clinics providing feedback to therapists about their alliances, and therapists receiving training to develop and maintain strong alliances. Expand
Posttraumatic stress disorder as a risk factor for suicidal ideation in Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans.
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was examined as a risk factor for suicidal ideation in Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans referred to Veterans Affairs mental health care and findings are relevant to identifying risk for suicide behaviors. Expand
The relative efficacy of bona fide psychotherapies for treating post-traumatic stress disorder: a meta-analysis of direct comparisons.
The results suggest that despite strong evidence of psychotherapy efficaciousness vis-à-vis no treatment or common factor controls, bona fide psychotherapies produce equivalent benefits for patients with PTSD. Expand
The validation of an active control intervention for Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
Participant-reported outcomes (PROs) indicate that MBSR is no more effective than a rigorous active control in improving these indices, and emphasize the importance of using an active control condition like HEP in studies evaluating the effectiveness of MBSr. Expand
