A five-year evaluation of Human Givens therapy using a practice research network
In 2013 the Human Givens Foundation (HGF) commissioned Bill Andrews to analyse and write up the patient outcome data gathered by HG therapists and submitted by them to the HGI's Practice Research Network (HGIPRN).
The resulting substantial paper based on five years’ worth of data from thousands of real-life cases by over 70 therapists working in a wide range of settings has now been published by the prestigious peer-reviewed journal, Mental Health Review.
This larger study reinforces the findings from a pilot study (published by the British Psychological Society) as to the effectiveness of the HG approach in the relief of emotional distress and marks another important step in gaining wider acceptance for the human givens approach.

Following this the HGF planned a randomised control trial (RCT) of HG therapy. Bill Andrews planned to produce a paper on the treatment of trauma by HG therapists.
