Chapters are written by leading experts, focusing on appropriate assessment and empirically supported therapies. Here are solid guidelines for what to rule out, what works, what doesn’t work and what can be improved for a wide range of mental health problems, including:

- ADHD, learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorders
- Bedwetting, feeding disorders, school refusal, thumb sucking
- Bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD
- Child abuse and domestic violence
- Dysthymia, depression, suicidal thoughts
- Erectile and orgasmic disorders
- Smoking, gambling, substance abuse
- Stress, chronic pain, insomnia

Developed with the frontline clinician’s time and cost constraints firmly in mind, the Practitioner’s Guide to Evidence-Based Psychotherapy allows readers to understand the best assessment and treatment options. This resource is designed to help clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists and counselors achieve the maximum in service to their clients. Concise and up-to-date, it also serves as an excellent student guide.
