The award-winning "A Guide To Treatments That Work", first published in 1998, was the first book to assemble the numerous advances in both clinical psychology and psychiatry into one accessible volume. It immediately established itself as an indispensable reference for all mental health practitioners. Now in a fully updated edition, this book takes stock of which treatments and interventions actually work, which don't, and what still remains beyond the scope of our current knowledge. This new edition has been extensively revised to take account of recent drug developments and advances in psychotherapeutic interventions. The contributors thoroughly review all available outcome data and clinical trials and clinical trials, and provide detailed specification of methods and procedures to ensure effective treatment for each major disorder.

Review quote

Now in its second edition, Nathan and Gorman again bring us an outstanding and up to date reference text for the clinician, academic or researcher. The evidence-based medicine approach taken is exacting and thorough ... This book distinguishes itself by providing a balanced approach to treatment, reviewing both medications and psychosocial interventions ... an excellent refresher for the general psychiatrist as well as the specialist wishing to keep abreast of new developments both in his own area of expertise an in other facets of our diverse discipline. International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 20 This is one of the best, most comprehensive discussions of psychiatric disorders and treatments that I have ever encountered ... simply wonderful. Psychological Medicine, Vol 34
