Edited by Michael Barkham, Gillian E. Hardy, Susan Llewelyn, Graham Turpin
Part of the SAGE Benchmarks in Psychology series
Clinical psychology is a vast area of research, on an international stage, fundamentally addressing psychological problems or disorders from an assessment, diagnostic and interventionist point of view. This complex field of science studies a mix of complex client groups (children to the elderly) and a variety of different perspectives of study (from neuropsychology to psychotherapy perspectives). Clinical Psychology II: Treatments and InterventionsThese four volumes cover the areas of treatments and interventions. The former targets treatments which are based on a specific theory (for example psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive, experiential and humanistic) as well as treatment approaches which have been specifically associated with a focused diagnosis (e.g., cognitive therapy for panic disorder). The latter targets interventions which are less specifically associated with diagnostic categories or theoretical models and are often based on features of service settings (for example primary care or forensic settings).
These four volumes reflect the diversity of applications of clinical psychology by considering treatments and interventions in adult, children and adolescents, older adults, and families and also cover interventions relating to areas such a neuropsychology (e.g., brain injury).
