The Wiley Advantage

  • An evidence-based approach throughout the text presents theories and practices while examining the extent to which they are supported by research. This reflects the new realities in clinical psychology and the ongoing commitment of psychologists to deliver services that are the best science has to offer.
  • A focus on diversity and the need for sensitivity to aspects such as gender, age, or ethnicity to illustrate the importance and the challenges of professional research and practice.
  • A lifespan perspective with examples using children, adolescents, adults, and older adults in order to guide the many undergraduate students taking an introductory course who have yet to decide the age of clients with which they would wish to work as clinical psychologists.
