What Is Clinical Psychology?Book - 1987
As one of the fastest growing groups of health care professionals, clinical psychologists are increasingly involved with issues of general medical health care and in helping with a variety of psychological problems and disorders occurring in family settings. In this volume, leading clinicians and researchers explore the techniques they employ, the rationale behind these techniques, and the conceptual framework within which clinical psychologists work. Detailed case studies illustrate the use of these techniques in the context of therapeutic practice with children, the elderly, and mentally and physically handicapped patients. This book provides specialists and nonspecialists alike with an overview of the diverse roles of the contemporary clinical psychologist.
