At a time when healthcare organisations are increasingly emphasising the need for evidence–based interventions, this comprehensive and timely handbook provides an up–to–date overview of the current evidence–base for psychological therapies and major psychological disorders. The
Handbook of Evidence–Based Psychotherapies takes a pluralistic approach, covering cognitive and behavioural therapies as well as counselling and humanistic approaches.

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.

The Handbook of Evidence–Based Psychotherapies will be invaluable to psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, psychology and psychiatric trainees, and other professions using psychotherapy as part of their clinical practice.
