The series Advances in Psychotherapy - Evidence-Based Practice provides therapists with practical evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common disorders seen in clinical practice - and does so in a uniquely reader-friendly manner. Each book is both a compact how-to reference for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, as well as an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education.In planning is a new strand dealing with methods and approaches rather than specific disorders. The most important feature of the books is that they are practical and reader-friendly. All have a similar structure, and each is a compact and easy-to-follow guide covering all aspects of practice that are relevant in real life. Tables, boxed clinical pearls, and marginal notes assist orientation, while checklists for copying and summary boxes provide tools for use in daily practice.
A new strand is dealing with methods and approaches rather than specific disorders. The first volume in the new strand dealing with methods and approaches started with the release of Mindfulness.
The series has been developed and is edited with the support of the Society of Clinical Psychology (APA Division 12).
