"The editors began with not one, but three lofty goals and they succeed at all three. To have this immense amount of information at your fingertips is a precious commodity, but to have it current, evidence-based, and easy-to-reference is beyond reckoning. The book will be invaluable for clinicians as a reference to the myriad therapeutic possibilities and their specific benefits for various disorders. Make room on your bookshelf for this one or, better yet, clear a space on your desk to have it close at hand."

-- Christopher Graver, PhD, ABPP-CN (Madigan Healthcare System) Doody's Review

"The practitioner would have a hard time finding anything comparable to the breadth and depth of this excellent text. The quality of references makes the book worthwhile for anyone interested in knowing more about current work in improving psychotherapy."

-- Patricia Murphy, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
