"...a good overview to treatment issues for many specific and common DSM-IV diagnoses... Overall, this book seems well suited to the beginning practitioner or graduate student who wishes to have a lot of basic information about empirically supported treatments for a variety of diagnoses in a single sourcebook. Its references and overviews would likely prove useful as well to more experienced therapists who are attempting to revive old knowledge or gain a quick introduction to an area with which they are unfamiliar." --PSYCHOLOGICAL REPORTS (Volume 89, Number 209-210, 2001) "The book provides basic descriptions of brief therapeutic techniques for major Axis I and Axis II disorders, as well as special issues that frequently arise in psychotherapy (marital dysfuntion, issues of diversity). Enhancing readability, ech chapter is arranged into the same compontents, including a case descrIption, appropriate assessments for the target problem, a description of the treatment, and suggestions for dealing with managed care and accountability... the use of case examples throughout maintains the reader's interest." --CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
