The prevalence and parameters of personal therapy in Europe and elsewhere

SPR Collaborative Research Network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter considers the prevalence and parameters of personal therapy among mental health professionals around the world. It aims to add an international dimension to this research-based knowledge of personal therapy by drawing on an ongoing study of psychotherapists that has been conducted since 1990 by the Collaborative Research Network of the Society for Psychotherapy. Those resources include information about the characteristics, experiences, and practices of more than 5,000 therapists of diverse professions and various theoretical orientations in over a dozen countries outside the US. Part of the information provided by these therapists concerns their experiences of personal therapy.
