This new edition has been extensively revised throughout and includes a new section on working with people with disabilities and physical health problems. It also includes a new chapter on career choices, and help and advice on how to move forward into clinical psychology training.
The book starts by explaining the core elements of what a clinical psychologist does and the principles of clinical practice, as well as outlining the role of the clinical psychologist within a healthcare team. It goes on to cover issues involved with working with children and families, adult mental health problems, working with people with disabilities and physical health problems, and the use of neuropsychology. The final part of the book explores current professional issues in clinical psychology, the history and future of clinical psychology, and career options.
