Description

In this volume, the editors examine the state of clinical governance in the Mental Health sector. Despite the often confusing wealth of literature on the subject, little, if any, refers specifically to psychological treatment services. Clinical Effectiveness in Psychotherapy and Mental Health provides a guide to learning about the different guidelines and evaluation methods. It focuses on three important contributions to clinically effective practice: clinical audit, outcome monitoring and evidence-based practice.
