Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher J Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN(Madigan Healthcare System)
Description: Evidence-based practice is becoming the norm in psychology with the growing scientific knowledge and expectations from managed care organizations. This book covers the major empirically supported treatments (ESTs) and their use in a variety of disorders.
Purpose: The main purpose is to provide a step-by-step guide to ESTs. This differs from other books in that it is an explicit guide, rather than just a review of the literature.
Audience: The book is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, and other therapists. Students of these disciplines will find it especially helpful as they attempt to figure out how to apply these treatments in a clinical setting. The editor is accomplished in the field and has gathered an A-list of contributors, including Tim Beck, Marsha Linehan, and Michelle Craske.
Features: What is immediately noticeable is that there is no wasted space in this book. The first chapter begins with treatments for panic disorder and the coverage of disorders and treatments never ceases through 16 chapters. These include panic disorder, social phobia, OCD, PTSD, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, substance abuse, eating disorders, sexual dysfunction, and couple distress. Although the structure of each chapter may differ somewhat, all generally contain an introduction to the disorder, including epidemiology, presenting features and diagnosis, initial assessment, and an overview of treatments and their efficacy. The latter part of each chapter consists of case examples that step through the treatment. Each session is discussed and sample dialogue is provided. In some chapters there are samples of assessment instruments, worksheets, and other tools used in session, and materials for the patient. For readers new to these treatments, information about the model and theoretical underpinnings is included. The chapter on PTSD has been expanded with a recent case from Iraq. Additionally, the substance abuse chapter has expanded to broadly cover multiple substances. A new chapter on behavioral activation in depression has been added, which is especially pertinent given other recent publications on behavioral treatments for depression. The numerous references provide starting points for even greater refinement of these techniques. The index is quite detailed and lengthy.
Assessment: This is an exceptional book for both the literature reviews of ESTs and the hands-on descriptions of these treatments. It will undoubtedly aid in the delivery of psychological treatment. In a body of literature replete with general comparisons, reviews, and meta-analyses, this book stands out as a truly practical step-by-step guide to the major psychological treatments currently available. Students of psychology, psychiatry, and related fields should embrace this in their training.
Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
"This book continues the tradition of previous editions by offering some of the most widely used treatment approaches, described in great detail by the developers of the protocols....How can we provide patients suffering from various mental health problems with the most rigorously studied, efficient, and effective treatments? How do we best offer trainees in psychology, psychiatry, and other disciplines, as well as experienced clinicians, direction in the application of such approaches? This book proffers an excellent answer to both questions."—Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"This is the best single-volume presentation of the state of the art for psychologists, social workers, and other mental health professionals working with people suffering from common mental disorders. Each up-to-date chapter provides a comprehensive review of assessment and therapy methods. This fourth edition will be an indispensable resource for clinicians for years to come."—Michael E. Thase, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic

"An outstanding resource. Each chapter presents a creative blend of theory, research, and practice, offering unique insights into the latest developments in evidence-based treatment. Barlow has assembled some of the most important authorities on psychosocial interventions to provide a comprehensive understanding of effective clinical practice. Our Counseling Psychology program has used the previous editions of this book in counseling practica and advanced intervention courses, and students were overjoyed to find a book that helped them make the transition from the classroom to the clinic. I have told psychology graduate students and psychiatry residents that if they could buy only one book on psychotherapy, this would be the one to buy."—Leonard A. Doerfler, PhD, Professor and Director, Counseling Psychology Program, Assumption College

"This latest edition of a classic continues the excellence of prior editions. Leading scientist–clinicians review the best theory and research on the nature and treatment of a broad range of psychological disorders, providing an essential guide for students, faculty, and experienced practitioners alike. This handbook has been the field's 'go-to source' for facilitating evidence-based practice and, even more importantly, for modeling disciplined clinical decision making in all its complexity. Like its predecessors, the fourth edition is a boon to graduate teaching and learning and will make applying evidence-based approaches more accessible for practitioners."—Gerald C. Davison, PhD, William and Sylvia Kugel Dean's Chair, Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, and Professor of Gerontology and Psychology, University of Southern California

Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
"This is a text that should be in every clinical library so as to be referenced based on the clinician's needs. For the student of psychological treatments, and the bibliophile, a personal copy would provide exceeding value in its study and stimulate ardour based on its thoroughness and beauty."—Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
The British Journal of Psychiatry
"The authors have considerable clinical experience and publish therapy plans and transcripts of 'who says what to whom' 'to prove it....The opening chapter on panic/agoraphobia is a masterpiece....A great resource for psychotherapists. All staff should have a copy."—The British Journal of Psychiatry
Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
"This massive volume of 16 chapters by 39 authors is a monument to the life work of its editor, David Barlow....He has been an acknowledged pioneer and leader in the field for many years, a fact reflected in the thoroughness of the volume's coverage and its list of authors....The fourth edition...is a detailed description of actual treatment protocols used by experienced clinicians. Therein lies its interest for behavioral clinicians of all stripes."—Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease

    This is NOT a step by step treatment manual

    That subheading implies detailed steps for a variety of treatment modalities. This text does not provide that. It discusses various treatment modalities, but does not provide detailed steps that would be useful in practise.
