Two Classes of Concomitant Change in a Psychotherapy

  • Leonard M. Horowitz
Part of the The Downstate Series of Research in Psychiatry and Psychology book series (DSRPP, volume 1)


The work that I shall describe in this paper was conducted with colleagues at the Mt. Zion Psychiatric Clinic in San Francisco. I would especially like to acknowledge my debt to Harold Sampson, Ellen Siegelman, Joseph Weiss, and Shirley Goodfriend for their various major roles in the work described. The goal of our work has been to combine rigorous methodology with accurate clinical formulations so as to achieve a blend that is clinically sensible, methodologically sound, and heuristically useful.
