Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an exceptional book for both the literature reviews of empirically supported treatments and the hands-on descriptions of these treatments. It will undoubtedly aid in the delivery of psychological treatment. In a body of literature replete with general comparisons, reviews, and meta-analyses, this book stands out as a truly practical step-by-step guide to the major psychological treatments currently available. Students of psychology, psychiatry, and related fields should embrace this in their training....5 stars!"--Doody's Review Service

"This is the best single-volume presentation of the state of the art for psychologists, social workers, and other mental health professionals working with people suffering from common mental disorders. Each up-to-date chapter provides a comprehensive review of assessment and therapy methods. This fourth edition will be an indispensable resource for clinicians for years to come."--Michael E. Thase, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic

"An outstanding resource. Each chapter presents a creative blend of theory, research, and practice, offering unique insights into the latest developments in evidence-based treatment. Barlow has assembled some of the most important authorities on psychosocial interventions to provide a comprehensive understanding of effective clinical practice. 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 make the transition from the classroom to the clinic. I have told psychology graduate students and psychiatry residents that if they could buy only one book on psychotherapy, this would be the one to buy."--Leonard A. Doerfler, PhD, Professor and Director, Counseling Psychology Program, Assumption College

"This latest edition of a classic continues the excellence of prior editions. Leading scientist–clinicians review the best theory and research on the nature and treatment of a broad range of psychological disorders, providing an essential guide for students, faculty, and experienced practitioners alike. This handbook has been the field's 'go-to source' for facilitating evidence-based practice and, even more importantly, for modeling disciplined clinical decision making in all its complexity. Like its predecessors, the fourth edition is a boon to graduate teaching and learning and will make applying evidence-based approaches more accessible for practitioners."--Gerald C. Davison, PhD, William and Sylvia Kugel Dean's Chair, Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, and Professor of Gerontology and Psychology, University of Southern California



"This book continues the tradition of previous editions by offering some of the most widely used treatment approaches, described in great detail by the developers of the protocols....How can we provide patients suffering from various mental health problems with the most rigorously studied, efficient, and effective treatments? How do we best offer trainees in psychology, psychiatry, and other disciplines, as well as experienced clinicians, direction in the application of such approaches? This book proffers an excellent answer to both questions."--Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
(Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 2007-11-17)

"This is a text that should be in every clinical library so as to be referenced based on the clinician's needs. For the student of psychological treatments, and the bibliophile, a personal copy would provide exceeding value in its study and stimulate ardour based on its thoroughness and beauty."--Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
(Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry 2010-05-03)

"The authors have considerable clinical experience and publish therapy plans and transcripts of 'who says what to whom' 'to prove it....The opening chapter on panic/agoraphobia is a masterpiece....A great resource for psychotherapists. All staff should have a copy."--The British Journal of Psychiatry
(The British Journal of Psychiatry 2007-11-17)

"This massive volume of 16 chapters by 39 authors is a monument to the life work of its editor, David Barlow....He has been an acknowledged pioneer and leader in the field for many years, a fact reflected in the thoroughness of the volume's coverage and its list of authors....The fourth edition...is a detailed description of actual treatment protocols used by experienced clinicians. Therein lies its interest for behavioral clinicians of all stripes."--Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
(Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease 2007-11-17)

"This is an exceptional book for both the literature reviews of empirically supported treatments and the hands-on descriptions of these treatments. It will undoubtedly aid in the delivery of psychological treatment. In a body of literature replete with general comparisons, reviews, and meta-analyses, this book stands out as a truly practical step-by-step guide to the major psychological treatments currently available.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a licensed mental health clinician. I've used the previous edition of this text and have reviewed the current one. While it is very informative regarding cognitive behavioral treatments, there is a serious deficiency. Some of these 'manualized' treatments utilize patient handouts as a core tool of the work. These are not included in the text. For example, Miklowitz and the Bipolar chapter. If I purchase a text like this, I don't want to have to purchase even more books to get the tools, or engage in extensive scavenging to find them, or spend the time creating my own. That defeats the purpose of my purchase. Perhaps the necessity of having to additionally purchase the published books of all these chapter writers is a goal of the editors and authors, but it is not my goal and won't happen. It inclines me to return to journal articles (which is perhaps best anyway) based on the needs of my caseload, because tools, patient surveys, handouts, are usually included. Call to the authors and editors: Do you want your work to inform clinical practice or not? If so, please make your work fully and genuinely usable for the clinician's office. Thank you.

16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By E. Lacy on August 23, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent reference handbook of the latest EBPs - I particularly like the two Unified Protocols that can be adapted to mixed emotional disorders since many patients suffer from more than one diagnosis.
Although this text isn't for absolute beginners, a novice therapist would be remiss in not having this text in his/her "tool box". It reviews current studies, literature - and then gives you step by step instructions for strategies. It doesn't, however, discuss the therapeutic relationship - so you have to be familiar with what needs to be done there, buy a different text or seek clinical supervision.
I'm a clinical social worker who is in private practice - I strongly recommend that other social workers purchase this if they want to have a competent practice.

excellent treatment manual for a variety of psychological disorders. Not an entry-level text, prior knowledge of psychology and psychopathology necessary for adequate use and understanding

This is an extensive resource of evidence-based treatments for just about anything you might encounter as a treating clinician. It is up-to-date, easy to navigate, and puts confidence behind your treatment decisions. I've found it is especially useful when developing treatment plans (particularly for managed care). This should be on the bookshelf of every psychotherapist.

This is the text that I plan on referring to most often when employed as a counselor. It gives step by step instructions, based on the most recent studies, of how to treat common psychological disorders.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Byron K. Smith on October 2, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
This version of the book does not have a table of contents that allows you to jump to specific chapters. Finding a specific disorder is a huge hassle. It's also full of typos and weird formatting. The extra $30 or so for a physical copy would be well worth it since the book itself is gives a really great background to a lot of disorders. It's just a shame that it's a chore to use in the Kindle format.

Format: Hardcover
Some times it's hard to find a good manual to both understand psychopatology and have updated information about the best ways to treat them. This book is, then, a must-have in every psychologist library.

This book was in really good condition and had no markings or wear/tear when I received it. The outside slip cover is nice but it falls off and bends easily so I just took it off while Im using the book.
