Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

On Establishing the Psychotherapeutic Alliance in an Unsophisticated Environment

Herbert Hahn

When a therapist moves from a ‘sophisticated’ to an ‘unsophisticated’ base, much more preliminary work in the dyad may be essential before ongoing psychotherapy can be established. In the case of Mr Taylor months of sporadic meetings were a sine qua non. To emphasise that there are no simple generalisations to be drawn, different examples are given However the main thesis explored is that as therapists we may too readily assume that because someone is approaching us professionally, we should quickly proceed to implement ‘therapy’. To achieve cooperation for the task is however more subtle, difficult and interesting.
