Synopsis

The Handbook of Clinical Adult Psychology by Stan (Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK) Lindsay

This third edition of The Handbook of Clinical Adult Psychology has been thoroughly updated throughout to take account of recent research. As well as updating existing sections, the editors have added sections on problems which are only now showing promise of being amenable to psychological treatment, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, the psychoses and cyclical emotional disorders. Following the same format as previous editions, the book describes causes, influences and corresponding investigation for each of the main problems that face clinical psychologists, before outlining approaches to evidence-based treatment. Practical guidance is provided on treatments for disorders including depression, sexual dysfunction, psychosis, substance misuse disorders, social phobia and personality disorder. This comprehensive and thoroughly up-to-date account of current best practice will be invaluable for both trainee and qualified clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, counsellors and social workers.

Reviews

I hope and expect that the present book will be as successful as the earlier editions and congratulate the Editors, and the contributors, for the continuing excellence of the Handbook. - S. J. Rachman, from the foreword
