Praise for the Clinician's Guide to Evidence-Based Practice Series
"A major stumbling block to the adoption of evidence-based
practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the
absence of clinician-friendly guides suitable for learning specific
empirically supported treatments. Such guides need to be
understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with
clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and
Springer have hit a home run with the Clinician's Guide to
Evidence-Based Practice Series, which has all of these
characteristics and more."
Edward J. Mullen, Willma and Albert Musher Chair Professor, Columbia University
