Clinical Handbook of Psychological Disorders, Fifth Edition : A Step-by-Step Treatment Manual
This clinical reference and widely adopted text is recognized as the premier guide to understanding and treating frequently encountered psychological disorders in adults. Showcasing evidence-based psychotherapy models, the volume addresses the most pressing question asked by students and practitioners--"How do I do it?" Leading authorities present state-of-the-art information on each clinical problem, explain the conceptual and empirical bases of their respective approaches, and show what the techniques look like in action. Extended case examples with session transcripts illustrate each component of treatment.
