About the Authors
  • Thoroughly revised, and fully updated for DSM-5, the new edition of this practice-focused book guides clinical psychology trainees through a field which is rapidly evolving. Through real-world exploration of the scientist-practitioner model, the book helps readers to develop the core competencies required in an increasingly interdisciplinary healthcare environment. New chapters cover brief interventions, routine monitoring of treatment progress, and managing alliance ruptures. Practical skills such as interviewing, diagnosis, assessment, treatment and case management are discussed with emphasis on the question 'how would a scientist-practitioner think and act?' By demonstrating how an evidence-base can influence every decision that a clinical psychologist makes, the book equips trainees to deliver the accountable, efficient, effective client-centred service which is demanded of professionals in the modern integrated care setting. Essential reading for all those enrolled in, or contemplating, postgraduate studies in clinical psychology.

    • Many illustrative case examples show readers how to translate their knowledge into practice
    • Updated for the DSM-5, giving readers the latest information from the industry standard
    • Includes information about an online system for monitoring clinical outcomes which readers can use in their own practice

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of previous edition: 'The authors argue convincingly that clinical psychologists working under modern cost-cutting and risk-averse conditions must demonstrate the efficiency and safety of their work scientifically if they are to survive in the workplace. Those considering, or just embarking on clinical training would do well to read this book, to develop a sense of 'science' as an ally and not a foe.' Caroline Plumb, Journal of Psychosomatic Research

    Review of previous edition: '[This book] is packed with case examples, showing how ideas and theory can translate into practice. Additionally, there are practical worksheets that a trainee can use to help assist with this integration. This book is recommended to clinical psychology trainees, and those considering a career in clinical psychology. Psychology assistants would also find this book stimulating and relevant to their practice.' Claire Lane, Psychology, Health and Medicine

    Review of previous edition: 'One of the major strengths of the book is that it outlines clinical skills with clarity (aided by useful case examples) yet it constantly reminds the reader of the wider empirical framework that is required. The book should be of interest for trainees across different courses as it covers many skills that all psychologists need to develop regardless of therapeutic orientation. These chapters might also remain a useful reference for those later in training and may provide a source from which to reflect on clinical practice.' Rebecca Greenway, Psychological Medicine
