"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"This book is a wonderful resource for practicing clinicians and psychologists in training. Each chapter is written by accomplished clinicians-researchers who present a conceptual model that guides treatment and practical discussion about how to implement the interventions. Each chapter also includes therapy transcripts or case studies that illustrate how treatment is actually implemented.
This book will be especially valuable to graduate students as they struggle to make the transition from classroom to the clinic. Our Counseling Psychology program had used the first edition of this book in the counseling practicum and the students raved that they finally found a book that helped them understand how to put these theories into practice. The thoughtful discussion of how to assess the client and how to use this information when deciding which intervention to use will be particularly helpful. I expect students will find the second edition as impressive and helpful as the first edition." --Leonard A. Doerfler, PhD, Assistant Professor and Practicum Coordinator, Assumption College
"Like the first edition in 1985, this much-awaited collection prepared by leading clinicians and carefully edited by David Barlow exemplifies the best of the scientist-practitioner model. Each contribution places clinical interventions in an appropriate empirical context and details for the reader how one moves from abstract principles to humane, appropriate, practical, and effective interventions. The second edition of CLINICAL HANDBOOK OF PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS is must reading for researcher and clinician alike--and for those of us who strive to combine both roles--for it shows us both how clinical interventions can be rationally based on empirical findings and testable theories as well as where the gaps are between data and practice. I've been looking forward to this revision. My students join me in being grateful for its publication." --Gerald C. Davison, Ph.D, Professor of Psychology, University of Southern California
"The first (1985) edition of David Barlow's clinical handbook was very well received as it provides actual treatment protocols and therapeutic transcripts by a number of very prominent clinicians and researchers. This new and extensively revised edition builds on this strength by drawing on a virtual who's who in American clinical psychology.... This book is a mandatory best buy which will have wide appeal to new and experienced practitioners from many professional backgrounds. By avoiding superficial generalisations and stressing the nexus between research and treatment, this handbook will appeal to empirically minded practitioners and researchers alike." --John Franklin, Psychology Department, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
