The first edition of this widely adopted, classic bestseller, published in 1985, represented a distinct departure from other available handbooks. Eschewing a cursory review of therapeutic procedures, it presented in unprecedented detail the actual protocols used to assess and treat frequently encountered psychological disorders. Now, this updated and expanded second edition, the first volume to be totally organized around proposed DSM-IV criteria, incorporates the numerous advances that have been made over the past eight years. Throughout, chapters are written by noted authorities who provide explicit descriptions of the empirically indicated treatment procedures for commonly encountered adult disorders. All of the fully detailed therapeutic technologies described share a proven clinical effectiveness and respond to the universal inquiry of practitioners asking "But how do I do it?"In addition to completely updated chapters on topics featured in the first edition, this volume covers such issues as:* Borderline personality disorder* Eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorders* Rape-induced post-traumatic stress disorder* Effective treatments for social phobia* A new protocol for generalized anxiety disorderThe book successfully combines the latest research findings with detailed, practical therapeutic guidelines documented in great detail by leading clinicians and researchers. Each chapter, focusing on a specific disorder, reviews current knowledge and the models or theories that guide the technology. A description of the typical setting in which the treatment is carried out includes a discussion about the social context of treatment and the implications of therapist and client variables. At this point, the book moves to the heart of each of the therapies by providing detailed, step-by-step protocols for assessment and treatment, illustrated with transcripts of actual therapy sessions. Finally, the authors provide clinical predictors of success or failure wherever data exist. An ideal text for students of psychology, this book is also an invaluable resource for practicing clinicians who wish to keep abreast of the latest ideas emerging on DSM-IV criteria, and the psychosocial treatments that share a proven clinical effectiveness. Similarly, psychiatric residents and other mental health professionals either in training or in practice, who seek definitive, state-of-the-art protocols for the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of adult psychological disorders will find relevant information to complement their individual approaches.
