Acclaim for the Clinician’s Guide

“The ability to critically review the research is essential for optimizing patient care. This book provides a good introduction to this process and maintains a level of sophistication that is both helpful and reasonable for students, paraprofessionals, and other non-research-based disciplines.

” -- Doody’s Reviews

“This book, written by leaders in our field, articulates and synthesizes evidenced-based practice (EBP) in a manner that is very accessible to the practicing clinician. For those clinicians in particular who have doubts about the whole concept, this book will be extremely valuable in forging a path to EBP that will be compatible with the vicissitudes of practice. Nothing else like it exists.”-- David H. Barlow, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, Boston University

“An innovative pocket-sized primer written by three distinguished psychologists…. a handy how-to manual on using research evidence to guide clinical work. Together they present a pragmatic, step-by-step approach to accessing, interpreting and applying research evidence to one's own practice.”-- New England Psychologist

“This is as fine a guide to the new world of evidence-based practice as any clinician could hope for. From formulating the question to finding the evidence, and from evaluating the research to applying it in practice, Norcross and colleagues have provided a much needed roadmap to the appropriate use of research data in clinical practice.”-- Paul S. Appelbaum, MD, Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Psychiatry, Medicine and Law, Columbia University

“An excellent primer on most aspects of EBPs, including finding, evaluating, adopting, implementing and sustaining those innovations in routine practice. The guide is generally good at simplifying, cutting through complexity, and offering practical explanations that supersede the jargon that all too ofteninfiltrates the field. The publishing of this book could not have come at a better time. The book includes a wealth of useful information about EBPs for both neophytes and experienced therapists.”-- PsyCRITIQUES

“Meeting the mandate to use evidence-based addictions treatments just got easier. Front line substance abuse counselors will find everything they need in this primer to locate, evaluate, and employ scientifically supported treatments without giving up their common sense in the bargain. This primer presents the nuts and bolts of using the latest research science to improve clinical practice, while making the most of hard won clinical experience.”-- Theresa Moyers, PhD, Research Professor, University of New Mexico

“A much-needed and unique contribution to clinical practice. A clinical guide that is sophisticated but easily read, comprehensive but elaborate, practical but conceptual, and stimulating but substantive. This is the best book available for clinicians and students who want not only to apply evidence-based practices but also to understand the basis for such practices.”-- Stanley Sue, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Davis

“Essential reading for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals. The Institute of Medicine identifies evidence-based practice as a core competence for health professionals in the 21st century. This book could not be more timely or important.”-- Gary Bailey, MSW, Simmons College
