Review by:
Simone Hoermann

Klaus Grawe, a renowned clinical psychologist and psychotherapy researcher, unfortunately passed away unexpectedly at the age of 62 before the English translation of his 2004 book Neuropsychotherapy: How The Neurosciences Inform Effective Psychotherapy could be completed. The English version was finally published in 2007 by Psychology Press. Grawe was Professor of Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy at the Department of Psychology at the University of Berne, Switzerland, director of the outpatient clinic for psychotherapy at the University of Berne, and cofounding editor of the peer-review journal Psychotherapy Research. Grawe authored numerous influential books and papers and held leadership roles in various professional organizations, such as the Society for Psychotherapy Research and the German Psychological Society.

In Neuropsychotherapy, Grawe attempts a long-overdue integration of neurosciences and psychotherapy, outlining findings from neuroscientific research and their specific applications to psychotherapeutic work. In so doing, Grawe builds on findings from various areas of psychotherapy research, drawing primarily from his own work on psychotherapy process and outcome in light of his consistency-theory perspective. The book appears to be written primarily for psychotherapists in the broadest sense, and it will be informative for any mental health professional, including psychotherapy researchers, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, and clinical psychologists.

From a 2010 perspective, Grawe's ideas are no longer revolutionary and are probably familiar to most mental health professionals.
