Summary
  • "Understanding the origins of psychological distress and how to ameliorate its symptoms has long been a source of both fascination and challenge to the clinical therapist. For every clinician, the task of grasping and integrating diverse sources of information, such as research methodologies, assessment measures, diagnostic systems, and even information from fellow clinicians, into clinical practice can be daunting."
  • "Designed to serve as a trusted desktop reference for all mental health professionals that addresses issues of lifespan and cultural diversity, Diagnosis and Treatment of Mental Disorders Across the Lifespan expertly covers etiology, clinical presentation, intake and interviewing, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of DSM-IV-TR disorders that occur in people of all ages. The most current advances in the field are discussed, drawn from clinical and research literature, and practical strategies and tips are provided for dealing with a wide range of clients. Included are chapters addressing essential clinical skills that lay the foundation for evaluation and treatment, as well as chapters addressing specific clinical disorders."
