This edited volume provides both conceptual and practical information for conducting and evaluating evidence-based outcome studies. It encompasses psychotherapy research for traditional mental health disorders (eg. depression, anxiety), as well as psychosocial-based treatments provided tomedical patient populations to have impact either on the disease process itself (pain, cardiovascular risk) or to improve the quality of life of such individuals. This is a hands-on book, whose major emphasis is on the practical nuts-and-bolts implementation of psychosocial-based RCTs fromconception to completion.

Editorial Reviews

"For those who have wanted to update their familiarity with how contemporary research is conducted, how data are analyzed, and how the ethical concerns posed by research are addressed, there have been few readable texts and certainly few convenient ways to access this knowledge. Enter this excellent book by Nezu and Nezu...This volume is strongly recommended for persons who will be part of any research endeavor, those wishing to be more knowledgeable consumers of published research, and persons who want to update their knowledge of research methods."--Psychiatric Services
