Wiley, May 7, 2007 - Psychology - 512 pages
At a time when healthcare organisations are increasingly emphasising the need for evidence-based interventions, this comprehensive and timely handbook provides an up-to-date overview of the current evidence-base for psychological therapies and major psychological disorders. The "Handbook of Evidence-Based Psychotherapies" takes a pluralistic approach, covering cognitive and behavioural therapies as well as counselling and humanistic approaches.
Internationally-renowned experts guide the reader through the latest research, taking a critical overview of each practice's strengths and weaknesses. Specific therapies and disorder chapters are interspersed between a general introduction and critique of issues for the evidence-base, and a final chapter provides an overview for the future. Overall, the book provides a unique summary of the principles of evidence-based therapies, together with the major disorders with which they have been evaluated.
The "Handbook of Evidence-Based Psychotherapies" will be invaluable to psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, psychology and psychiatric trainees, and other professions using psychotherapy as part of their clinical practice.
