'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 Third Edition Update explores all subfields of clinical psychology, including clinical assessment, psychotherapy, ethical and professional issues, current controversies, and specialized topics. Through the creative use of metaphor, the author connects new concepts with concepts you already know, enhancing your understanding of key concepts. In addition, you'll find balanced coverage of multiple clinical perspectives, a wide variety of clinical examples, and a unique focus on ethics and cultural diversity.
