This is a brief but highly detailed and useful reference book for professional psychotherapists. It is ideal for practicing clinicians whose jobs involve the selection of appropriate therapeutic procedures for various patients.

"How can we sum up this valuable work? Rather than being a manual, it is more a guide for a therapist who wishes to incorporate the best that research has to offer with the flexibility and creativity that practitioners see as vital to success. As such, it is also a good example of the local clinical scientist in action, and I applaud its inentions and eagerly await further updates on this project."--Psychotherapy Research
