Overall, I liked this book and believe the authors have done what they set out to do: set forth the research support for psychological treatment. I do have a couple of criticisms. One, the book is clearly a product, in part, of a managed care culture. There is an emphasis on a time-limited approach, clarifying goals, and descriptions of manuals with protocols for directing the step-by-step scientific treatment of therapy. There is little mention of a therapeutic relationship (most of these treatments start by telling patients that therapy will end soon) and clearly a bias toward looking at only a behaviorally oriented treatment. A chapter missing in this otherwise commendable volume would be on the treatment of chronic and severe mental disorders with psychoanalytic therapy and psychoanalysis with research citing Robert Levy, George Klumpner, and Glen Gabbard.
