"This excellent work makes a major contribution by extending relapse prevention to a wide range of nonaddictive chronic clinic disorders. The contributors endeavor to integrate research and practice, and to promote and guide sorely needed long-term follow-up research. Topics covered include alcohol, smoking, obesity, eating disorders, depression, schizophrenia, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sexual deviance, pain, marital distress, social competance, and stuttering."
--Jon G. Allen, Ph.D. Review in Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

"Behavior therapy is probably the most effective psychological intervention at this time for the treatment of most addictions, agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression, chronic pain, stuttering, social and marital disorders, and more. But sooner or later serious problems of relapse prevention (RP) and maintenance present themselves. Practitioners and researchers alike are increasingly aware of the need to unravel the factors that trigger off RP and the clinical procedures necessary to achieve durable maintenance. Prior to the appearance of Dr. Wilson's text, to the extent that it was available at all this material was scattered throughout the literature and there was no convenient way of making an informed appraisal of this information.
Dr. Wilson and his impressive team of coauthors systematically survey virtually every facet of RP, place these matters in perspective, point the way to future research endeavors, and outline the manner in which clinicians might avail themselves now of what is known. This book is timely, comprehensive, informative, and clearly written--in brief, an essential resource for all practitioners and researchers. In producing this unique volume, Dr. Wilson and his fellow contributors have performed a signal service to the professional community and thereby to the public at large. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only book of its kind in existence." --Cyril M. Franks, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers University
"Principles and Practice of Relapse Prevention constitutes an important addition to the literature. As cognitive-behavioral treatments are shown to be efficacious with an increasing number of disorders, issues concerning the maintenance of treatment gains and the prevention of relapse will become the focus of attention. Dr. Wilson and his colleagues have done an outstanding job of presenting the current clinical and theoretical status of this field." --Peter M. Lewinsohn, Ph.D., Oregon Research Institute
