From the PublisherFrom the reviews:
"This is excellent reading for clinicians in the field. It provides the latest clinical practice, both in terms of treatment and assessment. Graduate students in clinical/counseling psychology and/or social work will gain greatly from this book. It covers a wide range of disorders, is easy to read and practical. It contains everything you need to know about evidenced-based psychotherapy, especially in the era of health maintenance organizations and vigilant monitoring of the bottom line."
- Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D., Doody's Reviews
"This valuable compendium of 70 brief practice guidelines will be the most useful tool in any clinician's office. At a glance, clinician's can calibrate their own interventions to ensure that the most up to date approaches are available to their patients for the DSM disorders, and a host of presenting problems not covered by DSM."
- David H. Barlow Ph.D, Professor of Psychology, Director, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University
"This volume is a tour de force. Every clinical psychologist will want to own it. The chapters are well-written and to-the-point. They are authored by the top experts in the field and they convey directly what works and what doesn't. Fisher and O'Donohue, themselves distinguished researchers and clinicians, have done something quite extraordinary for the profession of psychotherapy and for clients who will benefit indirectly."
-Laura L. Carstensen, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA
"Evidence-based practice is important and will soon be a requisite. This book is the best resource for a wide variety of helpful information concerning treatments that work. I have never seen such a comprehensive useful compendium. It is a must read for all practitioners interested in quality."
-Nicholas A. Cummings, Ph.D., Sc.D., former President, American Psychological Association; President, Cummings Foundation for Behavioral Health; Distinguished Professor, University of Nevada, Reno, NV
"This carefully edited book by Fisher and O'Donohue provides a welcome and important exploration of the challenges of providing responsible clinical practice that is responsive to the needs and expectations of clients, healthcare organizations, and society at large. The many distinguished contributors argue persuasively that quality evidence-based practice is not static, that it requires continuous monitoring and updating as principles of change are creatively and humanely applied to the hurly-burly of the health care marketplace. This book boldly sets out the tasks and agendas and provides useful guidelines for scientists, practitioners, and policymakers. While philosophically sophisticated, it is a very practical book, a must-read for students, researchers, applied workers, and those involved in the management of healthcare."

"The strength of the Practitioner's Guide to Evidence-Based Psychotherapy is its comprehensiveness. Seventy-three disorders or problems are covered alphabetically … . The book is user friendly and written in a way that provides the ‘bottom line’ treatment elements for each disorder. … provides clinicians with a starting point in using evidence-based assessment and treatment, and a road map to find the information they need to provide quality, evidence-based care."
