Because of its pervasiveness in society, all practitioners need to understand the various manifestations of violence and be prepared to deal with clients who exhibit violent behaviors. Innovations in Clinical Practice: Focus on Violence Treatment & Prevention provides practical, applied information to increase your knowledge and understanding of violence and introduces new techniques and ideas that you can use to sharpen your clinical skills, increase your competence, and expand your practice.

All of the highly praised features of the original Innovations in Clinical Practice: A Source Book series have been retained, including: 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. Informal instruments and client handouts.  All new material with no duplication from other Innovations volumes.  A large (8½" X 11") paperback.

“A practical, well-written, and extremely valuable resource for all mental health professionals dealing with the numerous forms of interpersonal violence.  It spans the spectrum of violence from bullying to workplace violence and will serve the reader quite well.  I recommend this tome as an excellent source of assessment and treatment strategies, thought-provoking information, and prevention techniques for the present and future.”
     -Albert R. Roberts, PhD, Professor of Criminal Justice and Social Work, Director of Faculty and Curriculum Development, Interdisciplinary Criminal Justice Programs, Rutgers University

“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; President, Society of Clinical Psychology
