"The fact that guidelines, when used, are more effective than treatment-as-usual has now been demonstrated in several controlled trials for several mental disorders. Consequently, this volume is especially important for practicing psychiatrists and other mental health providers. In addition, it is a terrific essential teaching tool for trainees in the various fields of mental health. A 'must have' for anyone treating the mentally ill."-- "A. John Rush, M.D., Professor and Vice-Chairman, Department of Clinical Sciences, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas"
