"There are many books on treatment of psychological disorders, and many that focus on assessment only. This volume's unique approach directly meets the needs of clinicians by emphasizing the interrelationship of assessment, diagnosis, choice of treatment, and measurement of outcomes. Numerous disorders are covered in detail. I highly recommend this outstanding third edition to every clinician who seeks information on empirically based assessment."--Edna B. Foa, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania
"This updated third edition, like previous editions, is at the forefront of assessment-based care for psychological disorders. Practicing clinicians seeking to provide evidence-based treatment will find this handbook--edited by distinguished authorities in the field--an invaluable and scientifically rock-solid resource for planning effective interventions and assessing outcomes."--W. John Livesley, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of British Columbia, Canada
"The third edition of this landmark text keeps all the best features of its predecessors and has some fantastic additions, including the chapter on transdiagnostic assessment. The chapters are uniformly clear, and provide clinicians, trainers, students, and researchers with practical, comprehensive guidance. Throughout the book, it is made clear that assessment is not a one-off event performed at the beginning of therapy, but instead is seamlessly interwoven into treatment, with regular assessment and monitoring to help inform therapeutic decision making. This updated edition is an essential resource for all who wish to deliver evidence-based therapy--and demonstrate its impact--effectively and efficiently."--Roz Shafran, PhD, Professor of Translational Psychology, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, University College London, United Kingdom

Foremost experts on a wide range of psychological conditions offer the most current guidance on evidence-based assessment practices. This book is a necessary addition to the professional libraries of both clinicians and researchers at all levels and from diverse disciplines."--Brian P.
