Human Change Processes: The Scientific Foundations of Psychotherapy. Self-control: power to the person. Michael Mahoney has practiced science from within the major paradigms and has also stood outside and critiqued each in turn, not as caricatures but as valiant (if fallible) attempts to make sense of our experience.

The mystery of how, when, and why people change lies at the heart of the therapy process. Many authors have given shape to different pieces of the puzzle. Here at last is a book that provides the integrative framework within which these pieces can fit together.Why is it so difficult for people to change? What can be done to maximize the chances for success? To answer these questions, this sweeping book travels across a vast intellectual terrain, encompassing the history of ideas about human nature, developments in the cognitive sciences, artificial intelligence, evolution, psychobiology, developmental psychology, theories of emotion, the psychology of self, and more. The author then applies the theory to practice, drawing on his wide personal experience with hundreds of clients ”in transition” to outline a model of significant change. Mahoney identifies common themes and experience patterns associated with dramatic change, emphasizing the role of emotionality and cognitive processes, and challenging long-revered notions about thinking and feeling.Here is an important work that will point researchers in new directions, will help practicing therapists adapt theoretical concepts to helping patients change, and will make fascinating reading for anyone exploring his or her own life journey.

The late Michael Mahoney was a terrific writer and an even greater psychologist whose classical education is evident in every chapter.

Full disclosure: I'm a public school teacher not a psychologist. My link to Mahoney is a deep interest in cognitve behavior modification. He went way beyond that.

I am logging on mainly to supplement the other review here. I agree whole-heartedly, yes, Dr. Mahoney does an awesome job covering cognitive perspectives, but wanted to add that it's only ONE perspective covered- indeed, Mahoney is at his core a humanist, important in the psychotherapy integration movement. All of Mahoney's books are brilliant, (his Scientist as Subject: The Psychological Imperative had a profound impact on me; ditto with Cognitive and Constructive Psychotherapies: Theory, Research, and Practice, invaluable, both available at AbeBooks).

I read this when I was studying to be a therapist many years ago, and still refer to it- invaluable. At the time, the cognitive approach was the new kid on the block, and vying with strictly behavioral approaches in vogue at the time (as I recall), so I believe Mahoney was "giving equal time" to cognitive approaches, but he puts them all in well-balanced perspective. Few have done as good a job covering human change processes in a comprehensive way, beginning with seating them in their historical contexts, and eventually addressing them from both the perspective of client change and the therapist's process (including his/her belief systems and their impact).

Mahoney does a phenomenal job of laying the groundwork for therapists to conduct eclectic practice, to shift perspectives/ approaches as needed. Many perspectives are explained- constructivist, experiential, psychodynamic, behavioral, contextual, many more. In my experience most training programs favor one approach over others (usually cognitive), and do the budding therapist a disservice, because any single approach is limited/ narrow in scope and application (if you don't know that you REALLY need to read this book). This book remedies that. Mahoney is equally comfy inside and outside the box, and his writing is honest, lively, and interesting from start to finish!

Mahoney has written a comprehensive overview of the cognitive revolution in psychology -- at the very least. He provides clear timelines of philosophical, theoretical, and empirical events that put this complex history in clear context. The writing is "thick" while managing to be accessible to even a beginner (if highly motivated) who is trying to make sense of the complexities of the field of cognitive psychology. He goes on to develop a rationale for the development of what is now known as cognitive constructivism -- of which he is a seminal thinker. His rationale and theory development are logical, well constructed, heavily referenced, and inspired. After laying the historical, theoretical, and empirical groundwork, Mahoney provides examples of how this theory is applied to clinical practice. This work is a gem. It is truly worth the energy and investment necessary to read and absorb it.
