I'm not using this book for a class, just reading it for my own information. It gives a good overview of topics in clinical psychology. It's a little too simplistic to use for a class, I think. I do find it informative and helpful however, and easy to read.

Format: Hardcover
Clinical Psychology: Science, Practice, and Culture can be best described as a foundational textbook, introducing various topics and concepts relating to the field of clinical psychology. The text addresses both the modern approaches and the historical background that form clinical psychology as a multidimensional field, constructed of diverse techniques, approaches, theories, and perspectives for understanding, nourishing, and healing the human psyche. Chapters feature information on various aspects of the field ranging from the road to becoming a clinical psychologist to ethics, values, and concepts connected with engaging in clinical practice. This title is designed to supply the basic materials that are usually covered in an introductory clinical psychology course, and cover only the surface of various key topics relating to the subject. I enjoyed reading the chapters in conjunction with the lectured material in my introductory clinical psychology course primarily because the book was able to further delve into the concepts and ideas presented in class.
