Overview

A fully revised and updated edition of this unique and authoritative reference The award-winning A Guide to Treatments that Work , 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,A Guide to Treatments that Work, Second Edition brings together, once again, a distinguished group of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists to take stock of which treatments and interventions actually work, which don't, and what still remains beyond the scope of our current knowledge. 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. As an interdisciplinary work that integrates information from both clinical psychology and psychiatry, this new edition will continue to serve as an essential volume for practitioners of every kind: psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, counselors, and mental health consultants.

"...provides the results of a high-level task force created by the APA for the purpose of assessing the efficacy of therapeutic interventions for each of the major clinical disorders...an invaluable reference."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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 encounteredthis 681 page volume is 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."—Adolescence

Booknews
Numerous psychologists and psychiatrists, most of whom work in the US, collaborate on 28 articles about psychopharmacological or psychosocial treatments of DSM-IV categories for which there are known treatments. Contributors were asked to present the most rigorous, scientifically based evidence for the efficacy of the treatments. As a result, readers can distinguish between those treatments that have been scientifically validated and those that are felt to be of value but have not been properly examined scientifically.
