Reviews of first edition

`This book has earned its place on the shelves of behavior therapists.' - Journal of Behavioural Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry

`This book is a splendid achievement ... Its comprehensiveness, practical guidance and level of scholarship (a rare combination of attributes) will make it essential reading for most postgraduate clinical psychology trainees. It will also serve as a most valuable resource for qualified clinical psychologists and for those teaching specialist, first degree courses in abnormal psychology.' - Clinical Psychology Forum

`Most clinical psychologists would want to have it constantly at hand. If you are confronted with a client and the presenting problem is not one you know much about then this book will almost certainly tell you how to assess the problem and also what psychological treatments have been successful.' - Lancet

`A very valuable work which should be bought by all departments of clinical psychology and psychiatry.' - Behavioural Psychotherapy

`An excellent starting point for those wishing to familiarise themselves quickly with a particular apect of behavioural work. It would also be an invaluable reference book for more experienced practitioners and for those in training.' - British Medical Journal

Reviews of the second edition:

`For experienced practitioners it will be reassuring. For clinical trainees and assistant psychologists it will be invaluable as a source of genuinely expert knowledge.' - Behaviour Research and Therapy
