Description

The exponential growth of clinical psychology since the late 1960s can be measured in part by the extensive-perhaps exhaustive-literature on the subject. This proliferation of writing has continued into the new century, and the field has come to be defined as much by its many topics as its many voices. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Psychology synthesizes these decades of literature in one extraordinary volume. Comprising chapters from the foremost scholars in clinical psychology, the handbook provides even and authoritative coverage of the research, practice, and policy factors that combine to form today's clinical psychology landscape. In addition to core sections on topics such as training, assessment, diagnosis, and intervention, the handbook includes valuable chapters devoted to new and emerging issues in the clinical field, including heath care reforms, cultural factors, and technological innovations and challenges. Each chapter offers a review of the most pertinent literature, outlining current issues and identifying possibilities for future research. Featuring two chapters by Editor David H. Barlow - one on changes during his own 40-year odyssey in the field, the other projecting ten themes for the future of clinical psychology - The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Psychology is a landmark publication that is sure to serve as the field's benchmark reference publication for years to come. It is an essential resource for students, clinicians, and researchers across the ever-growing clinical psychology community.show more

Review quote

"Barlow has shown us once again why his status as the most influential contemporary clinical psychologist is so well-deserved. The progress in so many areas of clinical psychology is stunning, and no other source brings these areas together in such a coherent, engaging, or thorough fashion. The book serves as a definitive statement of what clinical psychology has been, is right now, and can be. This is a perfect guide to the future generation of psychologists and a reassuring statement to all of us that our work has made a difference." --Alan E. Kazdin, Ph.D., ABPP, John M. Musser Professor of Psychology and Child Psychiatry, Yale University"David Barlow has assembled a comprehensive and masterful group of contributions. This book is eminently readable, highly informative, and will be a valuable resource to all involved in the study, application, advancement, and dissemination of clinical psychology."--W.
