MEDIA REVIEWS

"There is literally no way in a brief book review to convey the impressive breadth of topics and contributors in this large text. It is unique in content, style, and coverage, forming a volume with which no ordinary 'handbook' can compete. In other words, even with a large collection on your shelf of many of the now numerous handbooks that relate to the ever-widening practice of psychology, this desk reference still makes an important contribution. For that reason, I will be keeping it near my own desk, since my test piloting of its usefulness for looking up daily practice-related information suggests that the editors have accomplished their goal." -- Clinical Psychology Review


"This reference gives fingertip access to the entire range of current knowledge. Chapters have been written by master clinicians and include easy-to-read checklists and valuable Internet sites, as well as practical advice."--ADOLESCENCE


"This new edition is a fine update to a classic reference work that has been in use for nearly two decades. Twenty-nine new chapters have been added since publication of the second edition, and 17 chapters were eliminated as being dated or less than useful. This reference volume is unique in coverage and content, and invaluable for practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, and social work. Essential." - M. Sylvia, St. Mary's University, CHOICE


"Practitioners who found the second edition useful would probably enjoy owning this new edition due to the range of new topics covered as well as the updating of many chapters to address the everchanging landscape of clinical practice." -Janet R. Matthews, PsycCRITIQUES
