Description

Praise for Bergin and Garfield's Handbook of Psychotherapy and Behavior Change, Sixth Edition

"Not only is this a unique resource, it is the only book that all practitioners and researchers must read to ensure that they are in touch with the extraordinary advances that the field has made over the last years. Many of us have all five previous editions; the current volume is an essential addition to this growing, wonderful series."
—Peter Fonagy, PhD, FBA, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis and Head of the Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London

"As either researcher or clinician living in the contemporary world of accountability, this invaluable edition of the Handbook is a must for one's professional library."

The classic reference on psychotherapy—revised for the twenty-first century

Keeping pace with the rapid changes that are taking place in the field, Bergin and Garfield's Handbook of Psychotherapy and Behavior Change, Sixth Edition endures as the most important overview of research findings in psychotherapy for professionals, academics, researchers, and students.

Reviews

"Few fields in psychology can boast of a definitive volume which, with each new addition, successfully integrates comprehensively described research from its point of origin. For the sixth time, Michael Lambert and the contributors have succeeded to present an up to the minute synthesis, a triumph of economic yet in-depth analysis. Not only is this a unique resource, it is the only book that all practitioners and researchers must read to ensure that they are in touch with the extraordinary advances that the field has made over the last years. Many of us have all five previous editions; the current volume is an essential addition to this growing, wonderful series."
Peter Fonagy, PhD FBA, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis and Head of the Research, Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London

"This is clearly not a book you will open and skim through, but you definitely would want to own.  Like the other 5 classic volumes before it, you will consult it time and time again. In the more than 1300 pages of this 6th edition of the Handbook, you will find a compilation of reviews that bring you up to date on virtually all the therapy research that has been carried in the past decade.  As either researcher or clinician living in the contemporary world of accountability, this invaluable edition of the Handbook is a must for one’s professional library."
Marvin R. Goldfried, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Stony Brook University
