This is the first work to assimilate empirical data on the efficacy of behavior therapy, pharmacotherapy, and alternative therapies to aid the clinician in choosing a treatment strategy, and in revising that strategy if it proves unsuccessful. Most of the major adult disorders are covered, with chapters discussing diagnosis, treatment selection, and potential problems through case illustrations. As a handbook it will serve as a guide and reference for therapists and researchers; as a textbook it will teach students the nuances and benefits of current therapies.
