"I love this book by Dr. Andrew Pomerantz...He presents alternative perspectives on many issues and by doing so helps readers learn from the dialectic or tension between these perspectives. This text is a great foundation for students who are interested in developing their identities as clinical psychologists." --John Sommers-Flanagan, PhD, University of Montana, and co-author of Clinical Interviewing Featuring fully integrated coverage of the new DSM-5, this updated edition offers comprehensive coverage of the subfields of clinical psychology, including clinical assessment, psychotherapy, ethical and professional issues, current controversies, and specialized topics. Up-to-date references, including many from DSM-5 in 2012 and 2013, are featured. Through the creative use of metaphor, the author connects new concepts with concepts readers already know, making this an accessible text for all readers. In addition, the book provides balanced coverage of multiple clinical perspectives, a wide variety of clinical examples, and a unique focus on ethics and cultural diversity.
