An authoritative reference tool, The Encyclopedia of Clinical Psychology includes well over 500 A–Z entries covering the main topics, key concepts, and influential figures in the field.  Available online or as a 5–volume print set, it serves as a comprehensive reference for clinical psychology and places particular emphasis on the scientific basis of the field; philosophical and historical issues; cultural considerations; and conflicts and controversies. 

Individual entries range from 500 to 7,500 words and each one offers state–of–the–art analysis and discussion written in a clear and accessible style by top scholars and practitioners. The Encyclopedia offers an historiographical overview of the field, demonstrating how concepts have developed over time and the ways in which research influences practice.  It also cites the best and most up–to–date scientific evidence for each topic and encourages readers to think critically when evaluating the validity of scientific claims, theories, and techniques. In addition, an online version contains interactive cross–referencing links and powerful searching and browsing.  Created under the general editorship of two prominent academics, The Encyclopedia of Clinical Psychology will provide researchers, students, instructors, clinicians and other professionals with easy access to the most important information in this dynamic field for many years to come.
