What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home-run with the Clinician’s Guide to Evidence-Based Practice series, which has all of these characteristics and more.
Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University

This timely book provides detailed, easy to follow procedures for the treatment of traumatized adults and children, based on a solid foundation of empirically based practice. Treatment of Traumatized Adults and Children, as well as others in the Clinician’s Guide to Evidence-Based Practice series, is a must read for clinicians who incorporate notions of evidence-based practice in their work.
Tony Tripodi, DSW, Professor Emeritus, Ohio State University

Rubin and Springer have assembled the practice wisdom of leading practitioners of evidence-based practice interventions, enhancing the likelihood that these practices will be adopted by helping professionals. Each chapter introduces readers to principles which undergird a specific intervention and detailed descriptions of assessment criteria, flow of treatment, and procedural steps. Written in the language of practitioners, this book represents an exemplar for dissemination of evidence-based practice information.
Joanne Yaffe, PhD, ACSW, Associate Professor, University of Utah College of Social Work

In their new book, Rubin and Springer and their contributors boil down more than 20 years of published research and practice to provide the busy practitioner with practical guidance in helping the traumatized. It is an indispensable guide to responsibly bringing relief to those who seek it.
Charles R. Figley, Ph.D
Paul Henry Kursweg, MD, Distinguished Chair in Disaster Mental Health and Professor in the Graduate School of Social Work, Tulane University, Editor of Traumatology
