Single-case research has played an important role in developing and evaluating interventions that are designed to alter a particular facet of human functioning. Now thoroughly updated in its second edition, acclaimed author Alan E. Kazdin's Single-Case Research Designs provides a notable contrast to the quantitative methodology approach that pervades the biological and social sciences. While focusing on widely applicable methodologies for evaluating interventions--such as treatment or psychotherapy using applied behavior analysis--this revised edition also encompasses a broader range of research areas that utilize single-case designs, demonstrating the pertinence of this methodology in various disciplines, from psychology and medicine to business and industry.
This well-written, clear, and thoroughly updated text is ideal for practitioners, instructors, and students alike.

Alan E. Kazdin was 2008 President of the American Psychological Association. Dr. Kazdin is the John M. Musser Professor of Psychology at Yale University. In addition, he is a professor at the Institute of Social & Policy Studies and Director of the Child Conduct Clinic. His research group studies developmental psychopathology and focuses on questions related to diagnoses, assessment, and treatment of childhood disorders. His extensive publications include textbooks in the areas of research design in clinical psychology and behavioral modification in applied settings. He is the author or editor of several books including Parent Management Training (OUP, 2008) and the Encyclopedia of Psychology (OUP, 2000).
Kazdin's book as written is readable and concise; Kazdin concisely tells the bewildered graduate student exactly what s/he needs to know to conduct single-case research. The book is full of examples that elucidate the text, and it's highly readable. However, it does need updating for the reasons that Kazdin outlined. I am excited about the possibility of having a revised book available. This is a wonderful project, and I look forward to the finished project. I think I can say that I am certain (9-10 on a scale of 10) to adopt this book for my masters' students pursuing their theses.
-M.G. Lancaster, Professor of Counseling and Special Education, Midwestern State University
