Abstract

Many case studies list the benefits of personal therapy. The question that I have attempted to answer is whether the therapist who has undergone psychotherapy can be shown to be more effective than colleagues who have not received such treatment. This has been the subject of some research, but the evidence is contradictory and the findings remain ambiguous. Further research is needed in order to clarify this important training issue.
