Case Studies Within Psychotherapy Trials: Integrating Qualitative and Quantitative Methods presents a specific, mixed-methods approach, called the “Cases Within Trials” (CWT) model, to psychotherapy research combining the results from a randomized clinical trial (RCT); the results of richly and qualitatively detailed systematic case studies involving contrasting outcomes drawn from the experimental condition of the RCT; and a synthesis of the two types of knowledge. Chapter 5 of the book applies this model to a study of an individually based psychoanalytic therapy—called “transference-focused psychotherapy” (TFP)—to treating borderline personality disorder (BPD). Finding TFP equivalent to dialectical behavior therapy, the evidence-based benchmark of BPD treatment, the authors subsequently analyze and compare the positive-outcome case of Ms. J with the negative-outcome case of Ms. V, both drawn from the TFP condition.
