New Research Published

A five-year evaluation of Human Givens therapy using a practice research network

Last year the Human Givens Foundation (HGF) commissioned Bill Andrews to analyse and write up the patient outcome data from a wide variety of settings that has been gathered over the last 5 years by HG therapists and submittedto the HGI's Practice Research Network.

The resulting substantial paper has now been published by the prestigious peer-reviewed journal, Mental Health Review.

This larger study reinforces the findings from the pilot study (published by the British Psychological Society in 2011) 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.

In further pursuit of this aim, the HGF is planning a randomised control trial (RCT) of HG therapy. As his next step, Bill plans to produce a paper on the treatment of trauma by HG therapists.
