Editorial Reviews

[U]seful for both novice and expert clinicians . . . . Many of the chapters include vignettes about the different disorders. This is useful because it helps readers better understand what happens when a condition occurs. This is an excellent book that thoroughly covers the history and purpose of the DSM. I highly recommend it. — The Milton H. Erickson Foundation NewsletterThe book offers new evidence without throwing away what is already known — the authors kept what works and added new discoveries. They place clinical information in historical context so that newer clinicians can understand how the field has evolved, and create a kind of reference manual, perhaps especially helpful for psychology students who don’t yet know all the terms. . . . Those who are just beginning in the field will appreciate the clinical cases and how decisions are made in treatment. . . . [A] good general reference on the different disorders and modalities of treatment, and those looking for updated information on the ICD-10 and the DSM-5 will find it a valuable resource. — PsychCentral[A] useful text for students and educators who wish to gain an overview of the epidemiology, clinical course, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, or to simply have as an on-hand reference guide for studying or in clinical practice. — Somatic Psychotherapy Today
