Psychosocial Treatment of Schizophrenia
Praise for the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series
"A major stumbling block to the adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series, which has all of these characteristics and more."
Edward J. Mullen, Willma and Albert Musher Chair Professor, Columbia University
