Overview

This is the first work to assimilate empirical data on the efficacy of behavior therapy, pharmacotherapy, and alternative therapies to aid the clinician in choosing a treatment strategy, and in revising that strategy if it proves unsuccessful.

As a handbook it will serve as a guide and reference for therapists and researchers; as a textbook it will teach students the nuances and benefits of current therapies.
