Practice-Based Research shows mental-health practitioners how to establish viable and productive research programs in routine clinical settings. Chapters written by experts in practice-based research use real-world examples to help clinicians work through some of the most common barriers to research output in these settings, including lack of access to institutional review boards, lack of organizational support, and limited access to financial resources. Specialized chapters also provide information on research methods and step-by-step suggestions tailored to a variety of practice settings. This is an essential volume for clinicians interested in establishing successful, long-lasting practice-based research programs.

"The field of evidence-based practice has long yearned for a large expansion of practice-based research. This groundbreaking new book takes on the putative and real barriers to that expansion and, one by one, shows how they can be overcome. Chapter authors include some of the best practice-based researchers on the planet, and their advice is creative and wise. If you would like to advance the day when practitioners themselves form the basis of much of our research on practice, you need this book."
—Steven C. Hayes, PhD, Nevada Foundation Professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno
"For too long the scientist-practitioner model in clinical psychology has been unrealized, resulting in a tragic loss of uniquely valid knowledge in the field. In response, Practice-Based Research makes a groundbreaking contribution by bringing together many methods, technologies, and case examples written by prominent cognitive behavior therapy innovators who have broken through the barriers to create models for a true synthesis of research and practice."
—Daniel B. Fishman, PhD, professor of clinical psychology in the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University and editor in chief of Pragmatic Case Studies in Psychotherapy
"The relevance of this book goes well beyond mental healthcare. It is becoming more and more difficult for physicians and surgeons to create sustainable clinical research programs on experimental drugs and medical devices. The regulatory compliance, business and technology hurdles are just too high. However, research on the translation of efficacious medical treatments in clinical research to effective medical treatments in the clinic is a worthy endeavor and good preparation for phase 2-3 clinical research."
