Editorial Reviews

"How can we sum up this valuable work? Rather than being a manual, it is more a guide for a therapist who wishes to incorporate the best that research has to offer with the flexibility and creativity that practitioners see as vital to success. As such, it is also a good example of the localclinical scientist in action, and I applaud its inentions and eagerly await further updates on this project."--Psychotherapy Research
