The Practitioner’s Guide to the Science of Psychotherapy

Establishing a new, scientifically validated foundation for current psychotherapeutic practice.

The twenty-first-century psychotherapist can no longer be constrained by specific schools of practice or limited reservoirs of knowledge. But this new “era of information” needs to be integrated and made manageable for every practitioner. This book helps therapists learn more about this new knowledge and how to apply it effectively.

In this single-volume learning resource, Richard Hill and Matthew Dahlitz introduce practitioners to the many elements that create our psychology. From basic neuroscience to body-brain systems and genetic processes, therapists will discover how to become more “response-able” to their clients. Topics include neurobiology, genetics, key therapeutic practices to treat anxiety, depression, trauma and other disorders; memory; mirror neurons and empathy, and more. All are presented with case studies and treatment applications.


Hill and Dahlitz invite the reader into a new era of mental health and the science of psychotherapy. This book simultaneously reduces concepts to component parts while expanding our curiosity into the interconnectedness of complex systems throughout the body, mind, brain, environment, and relationships. Hill and Dahlitz tear down the walls that have isolated psychotherapeutic archetypes while reinforcing an integrated scientific foundation for psychotherapy in the twenty-first century and beyond.
