This volume addresses two fundamental problems in the field of psychotherapy: the aversion many practitioners have to applying empirical study to treatment, and the belief that therapies due to unspecified mechanisms yield equivalent results. An international group of authorities describe the applications of specific treatments to a number of disorders, as well as reference training material so that therapists can acquire necessary skills. Clinicians with a wide range of philosopical viewpoints will appreciate the even-handed coverage.
