This textbook is a graduate-level introduction to the field of clinical psychology. While most textbooks focus on either assessment, treatment, or research, this book covers all three together specifically for the introductory level graduate course. Chapter coverage is diverse and contributors come from both PhD and PsyD programs and a variety of theoretical orientations. Chapter topics cover the major activities of the contemporary clinical psychologist with an introduction focusing on training models.
