  • Contributions by experienced researchers and clinicians presenting exciting new techniques and concepts.
  • Clear, concise ideas typically available only at professional workshops.
  • Presentations with a "how-to-do-it" emphasis - immediately usable in your practice.
  • Contributions covering a broad range of concerns including: Empirically supported assessment and treatment procedures; Useful instruments and forms; Community interventions and opportunities for expanding your practice; Ethical and legal issues; Client handouts.
  • All new material with no duplication from prior volumes.
  • NEW features in this and future Innovations volumes include: A less expensive deluxe paperbound binding while still maintaining the large 8 1/2" x 11" format; Multiple volumes each year instead of only one large annual volume; A focus on discrete clinical problems and populations.

Reviews
"Innovations in Clinical Practice, with its new format focusing in depth on relevant clinical problems or populations is of immeasurable value to practitioners.  The clinical issues discussed not only provide state of the art, background information on selected clinical topics but also provide the practitioner ideas for assessment and treatment....  [It] focuses on topics important in today's practice."
     -Diane J. Willis, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center; 2003 President, Society of Clinical Psychology

"A valuable resource that is easy to read and understand, this volume offers an interesting collection of articles on the most current issues dealing with youth.  It provides practical information with pertinent forms and handouts that can readily be assimilated into a clinical practice.  "The Ethical and Legal Issues in Working with Children and Adolescents" should be read by anyone who works with children and their families.  I have acquired many additional tools to incorporate into my work.
