A growing number of empirically supported treatments are available to mental health practitioners, yet evidence-based practice requires knowledge and skills that are often overlooked in clinical training. This authoritative reference and text grounds the reader in the concepts, rationale, and methods of evidence-based practice. Clinicians and students are guided to consult and evaluate the research literature, use data to inform clinical decision making, consider the role of culture and context, craft sound case formulations, monitor progress and outcomes, and continuously develop their expertise. Of particular utility, the book includes rich, chapter-length case studies. Leading proponents of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, behavioral activation, and other approaches make explicit the ways they draw on evidence throughout the process of assessment and treatment.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"'Evidence-based practice' has become the mantra of mental health care delivery systems, yet few professionals truly grasp its implications for their practices--or even the basic meaning of the term. In this much-needed book, Dimidjian has assembled the world's experts in this area to provide answers. Readers will learn what is really meant by evidence-based practice, and--using actual cases--how it can be implemented in practice. The closing section on training is particularly important. Everybody with an interest in research, practice, or consumption of mental health services will benefit from this book."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

"Dimidjian has provided a truly stunning compendium of the state of the science in evidence-based practice for mental health. Each and every chapter is practical, insightful, far-reaching, and important. I wholeheartedly recommend this book as essential reading for all who are concerned about the prevalence and severity of mental health problems."--Allison G. Harvey, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley

"Evidence-based practice is hard; this book makes it easy! With an outstanding group of contributors and easy-to-read chapters, this book offers an incredibly practical guide to help apply our best scientific theories, findings, and methods to improve patients' lives. This is an indispensable guide for practitioners and an outstanding teaching tool."--Mitchell J. Prinstein, PhD, ABPP, John Van Seters Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"This book helps therapists tackle a central challenge in evidence-based practice--distilling the corpus of available knowledge and using it to inform what they do with a particular client. It contains useful frameworks for utilizing the literature on best practices (across empirical outcome studies, clinical practice guidelines, and clinical expertise), formulating an evidence-based conceptualization, and implementing evidence-based treatment across a number of modalities. The extended case studies integrating these steps provide excellent concrete examples. This book could serve as a core foundational text for graduate students or established therapists seeking to strengthen the connections between the scientific foundations of clinical psychology and their clinical practice with specific clients."--Brian D. Doss, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Miami
