Review

"I consider this handbook to be an invaluable fixture in the field of psychological treatment. This was the text I read in graduate school, and it gave me a useful roadmap in my own training in clinical psychology. I know of no other book that brings together research and clinical practice in such a cogent and readable manner. I have recommended this book to graduate students and have used it as a text in an undergraduate course that introduces evidence-based practice in psychology. Although it is more of a graduate text, it has given my students a glimpse into how clinicians actually apply treatments that have empirical support. Several students have remarked that my course 'changed the way they think about treatment,' and I believe this book played a role."--Alexander L. Chapman, PhD, Department of Psychology, Simon Fraser University

"In preparing graduate-level social workers to use CBT in their field practica, I have found this book to be extremely useful. Covering a range of psychological disorders, each chapter outlines the sequential steps of treatment; clarifies the multiple treatment components; provides a detailed, relevant case study; and presents the empirical evidence supporting the latest CBT treatment. This is one of the most valuable reference books a clinician can have in her or his library."--Nancy Grote, PhD, MSW, Assistant Professor, School of Social Work; Fellow, Center for Mental Health Services Research, University of Pittsburgh

"I have used the previous editions of this Handbook in my graduate survey course in psychosocial intervention, and certainly intend to continue with the third edition. The chapters, written by acknowledged clinical researchers and practitioners, are unique in combining careful theorizing, a strong empirical focus, and a sophisticated appreciation of clinical applications. The volume offers a true scientist/n-/practitioner approach to understanding the nature and amelioration of psychological disorders. The creative challenges of moving from theoretical abstractions and research data to humane, practical clinical interventions are spelled out in persuasive and vivid detail. As with earlier editions, my students and I are grateful for the publication of this classic--yet new and innovative--work."--Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California.

"This is an outstanding resource for practicing clinicians and graduate students in the mental health professions. Like the previous editions, the third edition provides a wealth of information about the diagnosis and treatment of psychological disorders. The book will be especially valuable to graduate students as they struggle to make the transition from the classroom to the clinic. Our Counseling Psychology Program has used the previous editions of this book in counseling practica and advanced intervention courses and students were overjoyed to find a book that helped them understand how to put these theories into practice. I have told psychology graduate students and psychiatry residents that if they could buy only one book on psychotherapy, this was the one to buy."--Leonard A. Doerfler, PhD, Professor and Director, Counseling Psychology Program, Assumption College,Worcester, MA

"As empirical evidence grows and grows that psychosocial therapies are effective, the need for comprehensive treatment manuals to guide clinicians is ever greater. Barlow is clearly the leader not only in developing effective psychotherapies, but in educating the profession and the public about how to use them. Here, he has assembled a cast of some of the most impressive figures in psychosocial interventions to provide us with this most welcome and very comprehensive guide."--Jack M. Gorman, MD, Lieber Professor and Vice-Chair for Research, Department of Psychiatry, College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University

Format: Hardcover
If I had to choose one book from all that is published on treatment issues-this would be the one. I have three reasons: DEPTH AND BREADTH: Each chapter has a surprising blend of information on both the clinical issue at hand as well as the treatment approach-a combination that is often absent in other treatment manuals. PRACTICAL MATERIAL: In general, the treatment descriptions are detailed enough that each approach can be implemented alone or as a supplement in a clinical setting. Furthermore, the clinical vignettes accurately describe therapy as an individually tailored activity and not as a sterile and mechanical process-a criticism that some treatment manuals deserve. EMPIRICAL SUPPORT: Linking clinical practice to well-researched therapies is imperative. While there is a flurry of empirically supported treatment manuals around now, purchasing only a few of them can quickly strain one's budget. Considering all that is contained in this book, I consider it a bargain.

Format: Hardcover
I am currently using this book as a supplemental text for a course in Psychopathology I am taking at Cleveland State University.
The explanations of the various disorders are sometimes dense for the beginning graduate student, yet there is much to learn as each chapter not only discusses the etiology, but also various treatment approaches for each illness.
Would I recommend this book? Depends on what kind of student you are. If you are the type who is interested in learning only what is necessary to get through a course, this book will bore you. But if you are looking for a resource that will take you deeper, and be useful to you long after you leave grad school, then I would invest the money. Having a well-stocked professional library is essential to good practice. This book should be on that is on your shelf.

This text offers an overview of various cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) techniques for a variety of psychological disorders. Relevant research and case studies are included. Etiological models, trouble shooting and therapy rationale are discussed. I enjoyed this book and found it very helpful.

The book is solid and practical! The information is very useful in its applications and techniques in the therapeutic process when working with clients! I really enjoy the examples of CBT focused techniques used within this book. I use this book when I work with clients in order to develop treatment plans and utilizing CBT techniques. This is a great foundation in learning CBT for evidence based practice in psychotherapy!

I bought this 3rd edition trying to save a few bucks but ended up buying the 4th edition anyway when I realized that the case studies were almost all different. Usually you're pretty safe going with an earlier edition of a textbook but not in this case.

It is a very useful and thorough book. It came in a quick amount of time. Even though there is a newer edition I really wanted to save money as a graduate student. So far satisfied
