My dissertation concerns an increasingly important subject within psychotherapy and psychotherapy research: common factors. Common factors are the elements that are apparent in all psychotherapies and contribute to the effect these therapies have on patients. Although the main topic is common  factors, this dissertation will also consider the socio-political forces that have influenced the amount of attention common factors have received. Among other things, it will elaborate on the philosophy of science behind the randomised controlled trial and how this method has influenced psychotherapy research and research on common factors. It will also describe how the Great Psychotherapy Debate has developed and its current status.
