About this title


This volume is the first to examine clinical practice guidelines as a method of linking practical psychological work to contemporary scientific knowledge. the result of a national conference sponsored by the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, this volume challenges the discipline to begin to ensure that scientific knowledge is actually used by practitioners. Practice standards are being developed by the government, professional and scientific associations, and by the health care industry. Understanding how they will work and why they are here gives knowledgeable psychologists entirely new ways to compete and succeed in the marketplace.
