Recent research findings on the epidemiology, aetiology, course, outcome, assessment and treatment of all psychological problems considered in this volume have been incorporated into the text.

Chapters on ADHD in adults, emotion focused therapy, radically open dialectical behaviour therapy, and schema therapy have been added. The book is divided into 6 sections: Section 1 covers conceptual frameworks for practice (lifespan development; classification and epidemiology; CBT, psychodynamic, emotion focused, systemic and bio-medical models; and general assessment procedures) Section 2 deals with mood problems (depression, bipolar disorder, suicide risk, and anger management) Section 3 focuses on anxiety problems (social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and depersonalization disorder) Section 4 deals with psychological problems linked to physical health (health anxiety, somatization, chronic pain, adjustment to cancer, and eating disorders) Section 5 focuses on other significant psychological problems that come to the attention of clinical psychologist in adult mental health services (ADHD in adults, alcohol and other drug problems, psychosis, and psychological problems in older adults) Section 6 contains chapters on therapeutic approaches to psychological distress related to complex childhood trauma (dialectical behaviour therapy for borderline personality disorder, racially open dialectical behaviour for over-controlled presentations, and schema therapy). Each of the chapters on clinical problems explains how to assess and treat the condition in an evidence-based way with reference to case material.

Description : The Handbook of Clinical Adult Psychology provides a comprehensive and thorough practical guide to modern clinical psychology. Clinical psychology is no longer devoted just to the traditional areas of neuropsychology and mental health but is now contributing to many other areas such as health promotion, behavioural medicine, issues of professional management and the presentation and management of forensic evidence. The Handbook covers all these areas which are of critical concern to clinical psychologists and related professions. Clinical psychologists are called upon not only to treat mental illness and problems associated with medical afflictions but are also required to investigate, screen and advice on the treatment of clients referred to them by medical practitioners, social workers, nurses and others. In addition, one of the strengths of clinical psychology has been that careful investigation contributes to successful treatment. Therefore, investigation and treatment are clearly differentiated in separate chapters for most topics in this book, with each chapter written by a specialist in the area. Many of the practices developed by clinical psychologists are now conducted by other professions in the course of their work. The Handbook of Clinical Adult Psychology will be immensely valuable for all professionals in training, such as clinical psychologists, nurses, psychiatrists, counsellors and social workers. It will also be a valuable reference work for members of those professions in practice.
