From the Publisher:

The new series, Advances in Psychotherapy -- Evidence-Based Practice, provides therapists with practical, evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common disorders seen in clinical practice -- and does so in a uniquely "reader-friendly" manner. Each book is both a compact "how-to" reference on a particular disorder, for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, as well as an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education.

The most important feature of the books is that they are practical and simple to use. All have a similar structure, and each is a compact and easy-to-follow guide covering all aspects of practice that are relevant in real-life. Tables, boxed clinical "pearls," and marginal notes assist orientation, while checklists for copying and summary boxes provide tools for use in daily practice.

The series has been developed and is edited with the support of the Society of Clinical Psychology (APA Division 12). The Society is planning a system of home study continuing education courses based on the series that an individual can complete on the web.

Review:

"As a teacher of graduate courses on substance abuse, I have long waited for a book like this. An excellent review of evidence-based assessment and treatment methods, presented at an easily understood yet high level, objectively, and with valuable clinical advice." --Mark B. Sobell, PhD, Professor, Center for Psychological Studies and Codirector of the Guided Self-Change Clinic, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL

This book does a remarkable job of presenting a contemporary and comprehensive description of effective treatment interventions for alcohol use disorders and will serve as an excellent resource for clinicians... It provides an excellent introduction to assessment and treatment of alcohol use disorders for graduate students and/or those less familiar with the area as well as a valuable tool for anyone looking for more detailed references of specific practices for assessment and treatment of alcohol use disorders... a comprehensive yet succinct practical manual that exemplifies the scientist practitioner model by employing relevant research to inform therapeutic practice... The book provides an excellent balance between empirical research and practical application... one of the more outstanding qualities of this book is the product of its logical flow and practical application, a step-by-step guide for the treatment of alcohol use disorders... the appendices include a number of validated assessment instruments and intervention tools... the quintessential brief how-to book for assessing and treating alcohol use disorders. Its practical focus and brevity would make it a welcome addition to general graduate courses in clinical psychology and the shelves of practicing therapists. --Clayton Neighbors and M. Christina Hove in PsycCRITIQUES, May 14, 2008, Vol. 5

"This book provides a remarkably clear, comprehensive, but succinct, coverage of our current understanding of how best to help people with alcohol use disorders. Everything the practicing clinician needs to know is there." --Nick Heather, PhD, Emeritus Professor of Alcohol and Other Drug Studies, Division of Psychology, Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK"
