Here is the revised and expanded edition of the indispensable companion for every mental health practitioner. Improved over the first edition by input and feedback from clinicians and program directors, the Psychologists' Desk Reference 2e presents an even larger variety of information required in daily practice in one easy-to-use resource.

Intended for use by all mental health professionals, the Desk Reference covers assessment and diagnosis, testing and psychometrics, treatment and psychotherapy, ethical and legal issues, practice management and insurance, and professional resources. Chapters have been clearly written by master clinicians and include easy-to-read checklists and tables as well as helpful advice. Filled with information psychologists use every day, the Psychologists' Desk Reference 2e will be the most important and widely used volume in the library of psychologists, social workers, and counsellors everywhere.
