Common Problems: Common Solutions
Date of Original Version
Because change occurs within, between, and without therapy sessions, the keys to common factors are not likely to be discovered by focusing just on the 1% of the week that clients spend in therapy. By studying how people change on their own as well as in therapy, we have identified common stages and processes of change. Matching processes to stages has produced a viable integration that is having considerably more impact in health psychology and the addictions than in the traditional mental health arena. Research with this integrative approach is demonstrating how intervention programs can reach more people, retain more people, and help many more people recover from self‐defeating or self‐destructive behaviors.
