Internationally–renowned experts guide the reader through the latest research, taking a critical overview of each practice s strengths and weaknesses. Specific therapies and disorder chapters are interspersed between a general introduction and critique of issues for the evidence–base, and a final chapter provides an overview for the future. Overall, the book provides a unique summary of the principles of evidence–based therapies, together with the major disorders with which they have been evaluated.
