This authoritative clinical reference and text--now revised and updated with 50% new content--presents the assessment tools and strategies that every evidence-based psychotherapy practitioner needs. Unlike most assessment texts, the volume is organized around specific clinical problems. It explains how to select and use the best measures to assess clients' symptoms, generate diagnoses, plan appropriate treatments, and monitor progress. Clinician- and student-friendly features include tables comparing and contrasting relevant measures, sample forms, and case examples. Every chapter addresses considerations for primary and managed care settings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"There are many books on treatment of psychological disorders, and many that focus on assessment only. This volume's unique approach directly meets the needs of clinicians by emphasizing the interrelationship of assessment, diagnosis, choice of treatment, and measurement of outcomes. Numerous disorders are covered in detail. I highly recommend this outstanding third edition to every clinician who seeks information on empirically based assessment."--Edna B. Foa, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

"This updated third edition, like previous editions, is at the forefront of assessment-based care for psychological disorders. Practicing clinicians seeking to provide evidence-based treatment will find this handbook--edited by distinguished authorities in the field--an invaluable and scientifically rock-solid resource for planning effective interventions and assessing outcomes."--W. John Livesley, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of British Columbia, Canada

"The third edition of this landmark text keeps all the best features of its predecessors and has some fantastic additions, including the chapter on transdiagnostic assessment. The chapters are uniformly clear, and provide clinicians, trainers, students, and researchers with practical, comprehensive guidance. Throughout the book, it is made clear that assessment is not a one-off event performed at the beginning of therapy, but instead is seamlessly interwoven into treatment, with regular assessment and monitoring to help inform therapeutic decision making. This updated edition is an essential resource for all who wish to deliver evidence-based therapy--and demonstrate its impact--effectively and efficiently."--Roz Shafran, PhD, Professor of Translational Psychology, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, University College London, United Kingdom

"Antony and Barlow have produced an exceptional third edition of their comprehensive, user-friendly volume. Foremost experts on a wide range of psychological conditions offer the most current guidance on evidence-based assessment practices. This book is a necessary addition to the professional libraries of both clinicians and researchers at all levels and from diverse disciplines."--Brian P. Marx, PhD, National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System; Department of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine-By virtue of its concise guidelines for differential diagnosis, its extensive lists of assessment measures, and its concrete practice recommendations, Handbook of Assessment and Treatment Planning for Psychological Disorders achieves the editors' purpose and will be a valuable reference source for students and professionals engaged in clinical research and practice....It merits being widely cited and appreciated for its affirmation of assessment as an essential component of adequate psychological service delivery and for demonstrating the utility of assessment data as a foundation for effective intervention. (on the second edition)--PsycCRITIQUES, 1/26/2011ffA hugely successful endeavor. It is highly recommended as a reference for psychologists, psychiatrists, and nurses, especially those engaged in research or whose practices call for formal assessment. The handbook would also be an outstanding training resource in graduate-level courses in abnormal psychology or psychological assessment. (on the first edition)--Psychiatric Services, 5/1/2003ffAn excellent contribution to the assessment literature, with a unique focus on the utility of assessment measures and strategies for the planning and evaluation of treatment. This volume is likely to be of significant benefit to students, clinicians, and researchers interested in improving life function for people with psychological symptoms and disorders. (on the first edition)--Journal of Psychopathology and Behavioral Assessment, 3/3/2003
