Review quote

Reviews from previous editions... "This book belongs in every college library. It is a systematic review of various treatments currently in use for thoroughly all of the recognized mental disorders. Written by experts in the field and complete with many useful bibliographies, the volume is of considerable importance to those interested in the field of mental health and treatment....Highly recommended."--Choice"A Guide to Treatments That Work is a mammoth effort . . . This book began as a project of an APA Division 12 task force which made the significant decision to broaden its scope to include efficacious treatments whether psychosocial or medical in type. Psychologist Peter Nathan, chair of the task force, is joined as coeditor by Jack Gorman, a prominent biological psychiatrist, and the chapters are written by highly respected clinical researchers from both camps....This book is a boon in that regard."--Contemporary Psychology"This is one of the best, most comprehensive discussions of psychiatric disorders and treatments that I have ever encountered...simply wonderful."--Journal of Neurology, Vol. 251, 2004"The new edition has been extensively revised to take account of recent drug developments and advances in psychotherapeutic interventions. Incorporating a wealth of new information, these eminent researchers and clinicians thoroughly review all available outcome data and clinical trials and provide detailed specification of methods and procedures to ensure effective treatment for each major DSM-IV disorder."--Adolescenceshow more
