Clinical Psychology: Revisiting the Classic Studies traces 14 ground-breaking studies by researchers such as Leo Kanner, David T. Lykken and Aaron T. Beck to re-examine and reflect on their findings and engage in a lively discussion of the subsequent work that they have inspired. Revisiting the Classic Studies is a series of texts that introduces readers to the studies in psychology that changed the way we think about core topics in the discipline today. It provokes students to ask more interesting and challenging questions about the field by encouraging a deeper level of engagement, both with the details of the studies themselves and with the nature of their contribution. Written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the chapters in each text provide details of the original works, as well as their theoretical and empirical impact.

MEDIA REVIEWS

It is only by understanding the past that we can truly appreciate the progress that has been made and how new ways of thinking then, and now, have to occur for progress in clinical psychology to continue. This book provides an excellent account of key studies that changed our understanding of mental health and clinical psychology. It is an easy book to dip into and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about each ground-breaking study and learning how much influence and impact each one has had on current knowledge. If you want an insight into research and theories that have shaped contemporary clinical psychology then this is the book to read.


-- Dr Lynn McInnes CPsychol SFHEA AFBPS

Vital read! This book reminds us of how far we have come in the discipline and how far we have yet to go! An invaluable addition to a psychologists bookshelf.


-- Dr Clare Elmi-Glennan

Graham Davey has drawn together a group of well-informed authors to critically review the impact of key studies on endeavors to understand and help people in distress. This book offers an essential overview for students in healthcare professions, while offering practitioners the opportunity to reflect on their practice and challenge underlying assumptions.


-- Simon Easton, Chartered and Clinical Psychologist
The book is genius! The contributors to this very valuable resource have invested a good deal of time, effort and themselves, in order to present to interested parties an amalgamation of the pioneering research undertaken by key historical figures, that has acted as a catalyst in shaping the evolution of clinical psychology today in terms of research, policy and evidence-based practice.

-- Dr. Noreen Caswell

This edited book introduces a broad range of topics relevant to clinical psychology. It takes a unique approach, with each chapter focusing on a study that provided crucial insights or brought about a step change to the field. The result is an informative introduction to clinical psychology, grounded in historically important research.
