This chapter introduces and frames the third edition of Psychotherapy Relationships That Work, which features dozens of original meta-analyses on what works in the relationship. The authors frame the work within the Third Intradivisional Task Force on Evidence-Based Relationships and Responsiveness. To accommodate new research, the book has grown to two volumes: one on relationship elements (what works in general) and one on treatment adaptations/responsiveness (what works in particular). The centrality of the therapy relationship, its interdependence with treatment methods, and potential limitations of the task force work are all highlighted. Frequently asked questions are also addressed. The authors hope that the book serves to repair some of the damage incurred by the culture wars in psychotherapy and to promote rapprochement between the research and practice communities.
