'What is Clinical Psychology?' has established itself as the leading introduction to all areas of clinical psychology, giving a clear and realistic picture of what it's like to work in the field. It describes the full range of current practice in clinical psychology and related aspects of other areas of applied psychology in healthcare and psychological therapies. Covering all the main areas of clinical psychology, each chapter focuses on one aspect of the field (for example working with children, the intellectually impaired, in forensic settings or with addictions), and includes background information and context, the main types of problem presented, and the work of clinical psychologists in each sector. For this edition, two new chapters have been added, on eating disorders and cross-cultural practice. The entire text had been updated with approximately 70% new material. The editors and chapter authors between them offer an enormous range of clinical and research experience, and an acute awareness of developments in related fields of applied psychology and policy. This experience and knowledge is brought to bear to make What is Clinical Psychology? an ideal introductory text for those wishing to enter clinical psychology training, and for those in other professions seeking an introduction to the field. Additional resources include: * extended clinical examples * carefully selected further reading * glossary of key terms - guides to applying for training in the UK and working abroad
